A New Pyrex Collection

August 9, 2010

I went thrifting with my cute friend Betsy on Saturday morning.  It is so much more fun to go shopping with a friend.  And then when you find something great, you get to share the squeeling.  Which is also awesome.  Here’s (some of) what I found.

First off, let me point out that I have never found pretty Pyrex at this thrift store.  And never on a Saturday.  The building is huge, the parking lot is always full of cars and the store is full of scavengers (people like me who go like 8 times a week looking for something specific and awesome.)  Tucked on a shelf I saw this little cutie, with the lid for $1.50.  Sold.

No sooner had I turned around and I saw her little sister for $1.00.

And then this little bowl peeking around a bigger uglier bowl caught my eye.  He was $.75.  And that makes all three Snowflake Blue Pyrex bowls for a grand total of $3.25.  I was a little bit giddy.  But that wasn’t all.

This large green one came home with me too.  It’s not my favorite color, but it was $1.50.  And I would have felt bad about not buying him forever.  (That might be a slight exaggeration.  Maybe.)

This is my little, but growing, collection of Pyrex.  I only paid $5 for these six pieces.  I have one more but it is in the fridge full of leftovers.  I have posted about Pyrex a few times lately, and I really think it might be my new little crush.    It’s pretty, colorful, useful and cheap (you know, compared to Diamonds and Furniture and Typewriters.)  I am sure I’ll run out of space before I get tired of collecting it.  But I’m just as sure that a lack of space won’t stop me.  My little house ran out of space ages ago, but I still seem to find places to put all of the things I love.

    I received 2 of those avocado green pyrex dishes for shower gifts. Both still have their lids and I use them a lot. Can you guess what year I was married in?

    I also collect Pyrex!

    This guy has a few pyrex toward the bottom of the page.

    But I think your collection is a bit more useful.

    Oh my goodness! I am green with envy! In CA I always found pyrex but here in TX I never see it in thrift stores…. I only find old sewing machines 🙂
