I am often asked how I find such great pieces. Well, I find a lot of them myself, just by cruising Craigslist, going to antique stores, and hitting some other favorite shopping spots. But, I also have some great “pickers” who know me well and either sell pieces to me directly or tip me off to finds they think would interest me.
One of my pickers, Traer, found this amazing, antique display piece for me last week…
I had a similar one at Lucketts last year and it was one of my favorite pieces.
At first, I assumed it was a cheese case, but I found lettering on the inside of the bottom and it is, indeed, a bread case…
This is the back of it, but I sort of love the little door and latch.
It’s in pretty amazing condition with all of the glass intact and a sturdy frame.
I sometimes wonder how well these display cases will sell, since they are really for retail use and their residential usages might be limited, but I find them hard to resist and they always sell!
It will be a great display piece in my booth at Lucketts at the very least!
And, if I’m stuck with it?
Well, there are worse things that can happen…
