What I picked up at Value Village...and what I left behind

I'm trying to limit my pyrex-collecting by only buying pieces that I need (for cooking or serving)...and only in either pink or turquoise color schemes.

Here are 3 items that passed my "collection test" recently:

Butterprint 444 Cinderella Mixing bowl:
Flamingo Pink and Lime Green pie plates ( the lime green item just snuck in...but it was too pretty to leave behind!)
And here's what didn't make the cut:
Colonial Mist clear mixing bowls:
Pink clear bottom pyrex bowls (I do regret not picking this up, although I have a red set....this is much prettier)
red 402 mixing bowl
Daisy and Woodland mixing bowls ( I'm regretting not buying the Daisy bowl!)
Forest Fancies Bake Serve Store Casseroles
I'm not sure if writing this post was such a good idea...I'm now having second thoughts about the pieces I left behind!


  1. I also passed by a clear bowl set on the weekend - but I wouldn't have left the red bowl behind or the daisy bowl - that's sweet!!! I've had buyer's remorse so many times too.....

  2. I'd be having second thoughts, too! ♥

  3. I do that, say well I don't 'need' that piece and leave it and then think but I love it why didn't I get it. The collectors dilemma!

  4. How much did you pay for your Butterprint bowl? I recently found one that size for $12.99 and another one a couple of weeks later for $3.99, both at Value Village and both in mint condition!

  5. I don't know much about Daisy, but I love the yellow handles on that bowl. I'm definitely going to drag my fiancé to the local VV when I'm visiting him next weekend! Right before going to Purdy's....

  6. I see some English pyrex on a lower shelf too! Good for you for having some restraint. And yes, I would have brought the Daisy bowl home too. ;)

  7. WOW! what restraint. The red and the daisy would have been mine too!

  8. WOW! I love that daisy bowl!

    I totally would have picked it up (sorry!).

  9. I spy the english piece on the bottom shelf and a yellow printed piece that may or may not be pyrex. I couldn't have left to much behind. I love Pyrex to much!!

  10. LOVE the daisy bowl! I've never seen that design before!
