Hi All! I would like to introduce myself. I am Sherry from Hello Vintage, a collector of all kinds of vintage and retro treasures. Thanks so much to all the posters on The Pyrex Collective blogs, I have been really enjoying all the gorgeous bright colours. I am hoping to have many finds to share with you in the future.
I used to love baking when I was young (still do). I would use Mum’s sets of Pyrex mixing bowls as these were all she had. However it wasn’t until I had a borrowed one of hers in my cupboard that I realised how much I really liked them. I did wonder if she would notice if I kept it... Just joking, it is now back safe with her (for the time being - evil grin). I think there might be quite a few people collecting Pyrex around my area as I rarely see them at garage sales and oppies. I found this set of mixing bowls above (401,402,403) at the Port Adelaide Wharf Market marked (AU)$35, I paid $30. Not a GREAT price compared to a garage sale, but I didn’t think it was too bad? What do you think? I am really glad I bought them; they are so pretty and in fantastic condition. It’s possible they were never even used by looking at them.
This dish I bought for a $1 at a garage sale (no lid). I think I am likely to stick with mixing bowls for the time being however with prices like that what can you do?
