A THRIFTY THURSDAY FIND

Thought I would show you my cake stand I found at a garage sale last Saturday. It is a Silver Crest Fenton cake stand. I paid $2 for it and my cousin collects all kinds of Fenton and she said to price it at $5o to sell it. That's quite a profit it it sells for that. We went to an antique mall today and they had three pieces of silver crest Fenton and they were all smaller pieces and each had from 4o to 45 dollars on them. This one is perfect and so pretty. I will be going to another Trade Days Flea Market on July 11 and I will probably take my cake plate and try to sell it there.






The rose picture is a Sonie Ames print that I found in a resale shop in Arlington. I shop there quite often and have found several nice things. Sonie is a ceramic artist and paints the most beautiful flowers. She has some books, I would love to take some lessons from her and learn to paint on ceramics. But I will probably have to stick to other kinds of surfaces. You can find some of Sonie's work on the internet. She is great!!

Hope you enjoyed my finds.
Smiles,
Pat

Wow, beautiful. Can't beat that price. I would have a hard time selling it, but it would definitely be a great profit.
