Fab Estate Auction Find!!!

Our local auction house was holding an estate auction this past weekend. I would have loved to attend but since it was the day before Easter, I needed to do some shopping and do some things at home to prepare for the holiday family get together.

But, I did go to the auction preview and spotted this Gorgeous Pedestal Cake Stand and left a bid on it.

I didn't hear from the auction house on Monday so assumed I was outbid. But to my delight I received a call just yesterday and hurried right over to pick up my prize.

A vintage piece of Fostoria glassware, in the American pattern.

A sought after collectible piece.

Square with center well.

So many facets to catch and reflect the light.

Just a beautiful, beautiful piece!

My photos don't do it justice, sorry.

I opened an Ebay account several years ago when I owned an antiques business in town, but haven't ebayed for a while now. I have an Etsy account as well but have never sold anything there. I need to get both of these up and running again after some revamping to my Etsy Shop.
I must continue to feed my garage sale/auction habit, but can't keep it all no matter how much I try. LOL !

  1. Hi Betty Jean,
    What a fabulous piece! It's beautiful. I love antiques, too but have found that I just can't keep them all either. I'm considering opening an etsy shop, too. Hopefully soon.

    Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. I'll enjoy following along your blog!
