My good friends of the record blog Vinyl Whores have finally decided to take the plunge and start collecting Pyrex. While we were at Brimfield there were a couple of Pyrex vendors so they were able to have a good look at a lot of patterns in one place. They settled on Butterfly Gold, an excellent choice. Lo and behold the next day at a Goodwill in Hyannis they found a set of three casseroles with the lids. Done and done!
Now I get to live vicariously by helping them with their hunt. Just as they would hunt for Spring Blossom for me. This weekend I found the gravy boat at our local Teen Challenge:
At first it was just the boat and I looked high and low for the saucer. No luck, so I went and looked at other things. I find when you're really trying to find a piece in a thrift it's best to just leave, look at something else entirely, then come back with fresh eyes. (It is very easy to get googly eyed in a thrift store.) Sure enough in the corner of the shelves, on the bottom, on top of some random platters was the saucer. Oh and did I mention there was no price on either? I took them up to the register and they sold them to me for $3.
Be sure to swing by my blog Vintage Spinster today. I have a DIY Tutorial about getting the baked-on grime off of this Golden Acorn casserole.
