You already know that I have an issue with cake stands. I have those three lovely pressed glass pieces that I picked up at various flea markets. I have a couple sets of highly functional Anchor Hocking glass stacking tiers that I purchased for my sister's wedding buffet (those are boxed up in the attic, because they aren't used often, being practical rather than gorgeous).
But people, I can't stop.
My parents purchased me the diminutive scalloped edge stand for Christmas, and I've been keeping it in the center of our table, as a showcase for little treasures (recently, my antique tea cups).
I found the tall jadite beauty on Ebay and I had to buy it because I'd seen the same one in an antique store and nearly keeled over when I checked the price tag and saw that it was $120. I tracked it down for $50 (including shipping) and decided it would be my Christmas gift to myself.
And then Daily Candy had the audacity to send me an email about a 30% off deal at Layla Grayce last week and I found this ruffled, oversized one that screamed at me and forced me to buy it because it was such a good deal.
Here's the thing - I live in an apartment. An apartment that cannot be filled to the brim with cake stands, no matter how beautiful they may be. I can see only one solution. I need to start a dessert business that involves displaying things on cake stands. Then my obsession would be a justifiable business expense. Right?
Until then, I'll just content myself with taking lots of pictures of them.
