PEI Pyrex

Six weeks away from blogging is a long time - but I'm back - I came back to Ontario with lots of goodies - lots of Pyrex goodies.  You know it's not a good situation when you have to buy an extra bag to carry on your Pyrex bounty.
This was full of Pyrex, I had more in my suitcase and more in another carry on bag - good thing I had these two extra bags, because my suitcase was 7 lbs over - that's the first time I ever had to rearrange my suitcase - in the airport - but got it down to exactly 50 lbs!!  And I only had to leave one thing behind - two Spice of Life canisters - found at Value Village - $2.50 for both pieces. I'm glad I left them there - the glass is pretty fragile on them, they would have broken for sure.

I've never even seen these before!!

Just after I arrived there, I saw an ad in the newspaper for a half price off everything sale at Robin's Nest - I made the trek - I'm glad I did  - it was a really cute little shop - lots of neat stuff.  These were the most reasonably priced pieces, I paid $15 for the two.

My first piece of Daisy - and it's in perfect shape.

Snowflake Garland - divided dish, love it!!

In my little fishing village there is a shop called Blue Moon Treasures - it's nice to have a collectible shop within walking distance but very dangerous - I think I went there three times - they had quite a bit of Pyrex - here's a piece that I didn't buy - I wanted it - but  wouldn't pay $30 for one piece of Pyrex - wonder if it'll still be sitting there next time I go..

I took this picture in the shop - I didn't buy it the first day - I didn't realize it was a promotional dish called Compass - it was sitting on a stand.  I don't know if that stand an original to the dish or not.  I paid $8 for it which I thought was reasonable for a collectible shop.

My favorite purchase was this lime green baking pan - I've used it already for a batch of Rice Krispie Squares - just the right size pan.   I have the lime green square pan and pie plate - now I'm on the lookout for a loaf pan.

I bought this Spice of Life cream and sugar at the same shop - they were priced individually which is kind of silly, the clerk didn't notice until it was too late so she gave them to me for $2.75 - good price!!!

Gooseberry in two colors - how lucky was that!!  The 442 bowl was $8 - they must like that price at Blue Moon!  The 474 casserole is a great size - this is so pretty!  I bought it at a huge indoor yard sale which advertised over 150 vendors, I don't think so - I don't know if there were 50.  And, I think this piece was the only Pyrex in the place - price of that was $10 - I had to bargain for that price!

I didn't even really take stock of this casserole -it didn't look like Pyrex - but it is , another promotional called Floral, the  price, once again, $8. 

The color on this sure didn't turn out very good but it is Delphite, blue top and bottom, made in Canada.  I was talking Pyrex to my mother's friend-she got up and presented me with this fridgie.  I couldn't believe it!  You never know who might have hidden Pyrex - you should always bring it up in conversation!

That's it for my PEI Pyrex - I have other treasures to blog about, I'll leave that for another day....


  1. What great finds!! I love them. :)

    P.S. I agree it should be brought up in conversation! I was just telling my mother's friend yesterday about how I started collecting, and she gave me a set of Homestead casserole dishes that she received 30 years ago as a wedding present as a gift for MY wedding.

  2. Wow, all that pyrex must have been so heavy in your bags! LOL :) Great finds. Love those gooseberries...and well really everything.

    I love all your finds!! You know you have Pyrexia real bad when you have to buy an extra bag to bring it all home, lol!!

  4. Liked the lime dish! I have the same dish, and the lime loaf pan, but in need of the lime pie plate! I guess that's why collecting Pyrex is fun. Yesterday, I found a Black Snowflake pattern dish just sitting there on the shelf, then a Butterprint ovenware dish. Both were pretty dirty, but a dose of Bartender's Friend and hot soapy water did the trick. Hope you find the loaf pan... Congrats!

  5. Love all your finds! Pyrex makes me happy!
