My new love - what a hunk!

He's tall and wide.  Huge and strong.  Aged to perfection - with so much character.  He's a hunk y'all  -  of amazing metal!  I feel so lucky to have scored this fabulous find today:
It's an antique bakery cart with slide-in metal racks.















Check out the awesome wheels:
And handles:

In order to get it in our garage I had to actually use the space.  I even gave Hubby a shelf.

I think it would make a fabulous display for a store.  Would look so cool as an entertainment center in a loft.  And would be wonderful in a huge kitchen filled with stacks of white plates, white cake stands and white pitchers.  Some day he'll be used to his full potential but for now I'll just smile every time I step foot in the garage.

Not sure what baffles me more...where you find these things,or how you find the time to shop with everything else that you do. Very impressed.
