Like many thrift shops, it is hit or miss. I have not had many hits (a lamp which will be featured later this month) and the items found in today's post.
When I saw this platter and ice cream sundae dish, I knew that I had to get them. Especially since at $1.99 and $0.99, they wouldn't break the bank.
(Note to self: do not take pics of glass items on my light colored countertop)
You see, we had our housewarming party coming up and I needed something tall and flat to put the plates on for the buffet. Why tall you ask? Beause I wanted it able to be placed in the middle of the table with napkins scattered around it. I was afraid a regular cake plate would not be tall enough to do this.
These were the perfect solution.
A little glass glue (purchased at the Lowes across the street) and I was ready to go.
To secure the two pieces together, apply the glue according to the package directions to the bottom of the platter. Mine had three little feet and a circular pattern in the center of the platter so it was easy to see where the glue would need to be applied.
(Another note to self: See about getting a tripod or
having Hubs to take the pics when I am glueing
since apparently I cannot take pics with one hand)
Place the sundae dish upside down onto the platter and press for 30 seconds to ensure a strong bond.
Once the two pieces are secured, turn right side up and let sit for 24 hours before using.
While I don't have a pic of the piece in use at the actual party (I got distracted with getting the food on the table in time), here is a recreation.
