Vintage Tea Tray

For years I have seen and heard about these tea trays.

Whenever I find them at Antique shops, they are very pricey. Like $35 and up!!

So imagine my surprise and delight when I came across this tray at the Goodwill last week!!!

I don't know if you can see the price, but I paid $2.06 for it. It is not pristine, as it has some scratches and some worn areas. But hey, it works for a great decoration.

And the price was definitely right!

What a great find! I keep seeing these on blogland, but have yet to run across one. Maybe some day I'll be lucky as you.

Hello, my friend, this tray was a terrific find and just the right price. These trays are very pricey. I have one from when I was first married almost 40 years ago. I have hung on to it over the years. Your tray looks perfect in the spot you placed it! Have a terrific weekend, Jocelyn! Vicki
