I am coming over and bringing dessert…

5.1 015
When we have family gatherings I always volunteer to bring dessert as I love to bake. I haven’t ever owned a cake/pie carrier. Correction here...Actually I own several silver cake carriers that are just used for decoration on top of my kitchen cabinets. Usually I take a box and place the pie/cake in it and hope the box keeps the item steady and that the dog doesn’t get into it during the car ride.

When I spied this 3-tier beauty at a garage sale I didn’t even negotiate…I quickly pulled out my $2. Don’t you just love it??? I haven’t ever seen one with wild pictures like this one. Makes me want to whip up some dessert and head to a cabin for vacation.

I am trying to figure out where I could keep it on display in the kitchen.

see other bloggers thrifty finds.

If you have time and haven’t done so already, please take the garage sale survey on my sidebar. I will be using the results of this survey in an upcoming Thrifty Shopping article on My goal is to get 100 bloggers to participate, so tell all your friends.

Thank you for visiting me on

Now, THAT'S a find! My favorite part of your post was the part where you said you didn't even barter, just paid the $2!

That is really cute and certainly in your signature colors. I have an old acid green one that I keep on a high shelf over a door in the kitchen.

I have several and I get so many compliments on it when I take it to dinners. So fun

HI, Renee, thanks for joining my party. That is an adorable cake holder. Now you'll be ready for the desserts. I'll take your poll too.

Sweet!! I've been looking for cake plate/cover ensemble for a while now. I'd love to find a shabby chic one but at this point anything in decent usable shape would do. I could always paint it right? Nice find.

Out of all the cake carriers we have sold in the shop, or viewed in antique malls, I've never seen this design. Lovely, colorful ...

This is absolutely adorable. And what a cool beachy design. I don't think you find something like that in a store (these days).
