Flea Market Find

A few weekends ago my husband and I spent a Saturday at various flea markets in our area.  In one of the dumpiest ones, I made this great find! 

Now, maybe you don't as excited about old stuff as I do, but I wanted to show you this great cake carrier.  It looks like it's from the 70s.

Let me take you on a little tour:

Here it is all put together.  I LOVE the flowers and don't mind a bit about the scratches and the rust.  When I use it for a cake, I will line the food-touching parts with foil or wax paper or even a pretty doily.  No problem.
Here are all the parts separately.  Can you tell what goes where?!  I'm telling you, this thing is full of hidden storage spaces!
Looky here!  In the bottom section, under the cake plate, is a little space where you could store/transport cookies or brownies or anything else low profile.
Then you put your cake on the cake plate and cover it with the tall flowered section.
Then you add the lid.  But wait!  There is more room for cookies or brownies or any other kind of treat right there under the lid!  I'm telling you, this thing can house a dessert extravaganza!
Then you pick it up by the trusty little handle and off you go!  I can't wait to use it!


  1. I've already got next month's Trade Days on my calendar. I WANT ONE!!!

  2. Very cool, and I loooove all the compartments!
