Finding My Dream Cakestand

Photo from Woman's Day



Hi there, my lovely readers! I have another fun St. Patrick's Day recipe in the works that I can't wait to share with you all this weekend. But today all I have is a simple request. First, let me emphasize that this lovely photo is not mine but that of one of my favorite photographers, the ever amazing Con Poulos. And though I do love me some cupcakes, the real point of this post is to ask (plea, even?) for help obtaining the beautiful doily cake stand pictured above. I'd been searching for this stand for almost a year when I recently learned that it was sold by Anthropologie some time ago but is and will no longer be available form them. I'm not sure if it's sold somewhere else, but I'd be so grateful if you let me know if you've seen it. Or if you or someone you know owns it and is willing to sell it, I'd be willing to purchase it for full price or possibly higher. I know this is an unconventional means to find something, but it just shows how desperately I've fallen in love with this piece. Thanks for bearing with and helping me -XL <3

  5. I love the lattice cake stands, and I am a collector....I have a bunch of pieces but I think shipping from Japan wouldn't be very economical...however... I have bought mine online from the US as well....

    I usually do a search on ebay (lace cake stand) or even Etsy I get a lot of my stuff from these two places, and pottery markets = )

  10. Thanks, everyone! I asked the designer herself and the stand was exclusively for Anthropologie. I guess my only hope is to find someone willing to sell theirs now!
