I don't find myself buying as many Pyrex pieces as I did - because I have a lot and where am I to put it. But, still I pick up an odd piece here and there and sometimes you just can't help yourself - you know what I mean?
The other Saturday I was headed to the store and saw a garage sale sign, there just are no garage sales around here this time of the year, so I thought I better pull in, really, I had hopes of a blow mold - none of those, but I did come out of there with something, I spent $3 for three things.
This was such a rich color and in great shape, I thought it might have looked better than the 403 that I have, Carla has a nice one as well, so I can't give it to her either, if anyone out there is looking for this bowl, I'd like to trade it.
I always like Butterfly Gold, I didn't have this 402.
I took this picture to compare the different pie plates, I bought the little one at the bottom that day, it's so much smaller than the Pink Flamingo at the top or the Flavor Saver plate, it measures 8 inches, it's a 208 and made in Canada!
I traded this cute little 473B Colonial Mist with Erica - Erica and Hanna find the greatest things - if you haven't checked out The Adventures of two (Pyrex Crazy) Thrifting Sisters, well, you just should right now. Thanks, Erica!
I went back to the shop where I found all the Shiny Brites a while back, they're closing soon for the season, I can see why, it was freezing in there. This 2 1/2 quart hostess bowl was a nice find, especially with the lid and it's in great shape too.
These books came from there too - I thought the Football book might be a good one to list - it's a Scholastic book, published in 1961. The Elf Books have the sweetest illustrations, as seen below, it's from 1953.
I spotted this on my last stroll through the store - does anyone know anything about this doll? She is standing on a plastic base, Made in Korea is the only marking on her. She has very unique eyes, I don't know what material her hair is. She has cloth like hands and legs, her face is plastic, she is wearing a crinoline under her dress, with red underpants. She looked like Christmas to me, so that's why I bought her.
