Awe Snap. I Thought For Sure I Had Just Found The Stand For My Ashtray. Actually, I Did. Status: Still...No Dice.
I thought I had hit the (relative) jackpot at the Goodwill over the weekend in finally finding a magazine stand for my matching ashtray! Well, fate has a funny sense of humor, it does.
Oh yeah, I was feeling pretty darn proud of my foresight in buying this ceramic ashtray at the
Flea Market or where ever it was I found it AFTER I found it's matching stand Saturday. I was
feeling pretty darn smug, actually! What are the chances of finding a matching stand sans ceramic
ashtray? Pretty slim I think.
But I did. And it fits perfectly. But alas, when I picked the ashtray up to bring it over to test on
the stand I noticed a hairline crack. What? How had I missed that? Then I flexed it just a touch
to be sure of what I was seeing and snap. That was it. It was in two pieces. Sigh. So much for
At least it wasn't a hard to find Salem Hopscotch teacup. And I'm sure I'll find another ashtray to
sit atop this magnificent stand sooner or later. It's such a shame though, don't you think? I was so
close! I was ready to make up a tag and toss it in the booth.
At least in made for some interesting photos!
