Hello pyrex world!

Hello fellow Pyrex addicts.
I have been lurking for a while and finally got a chance to take a picture and make an introduction!
Here is a view of my displayed collection so far.

From Drop Box

I have only been collection since mid-summer. It started with Fireking and moved on to Pyrex. At first I was buying everything I could find, but as you probably have experienced, I started to get a better feel for what I really loved.
I have a bit more that I don't display and probably don't plan on keeping. My favorite patterns are Horizon blue, all of the primary sets, spring blossom and Butterfly Gold.
I have also been collecting vintage Corelle and decided to forego the traditional 'china' collectiion for a mix and match table set of the stuff. I love the look of it in action!
From Drop Box

I love all the fun finds I see posted here. It definitely seems like my Goodwill is picked over (I think they are putting all the good stuff on their online auction site), so I live vicariously through you all!
Also, I don't have much space in my little hutch, so I will need to slow down a bit until I can move to a different house or buy another cabinet! Also, I need to convince the hubby I am not a hoarder.
So, that is that! Hello Pyrex World!


  1. If I were you I'd consider bidding on the stuff they put on the website. At least then you could pick it up at the store rather than pay for shipping. I wish there was a Goodwill here that would post things on their site. My stores are very picked over-it's rare that I find a piece. Are those horizon cinderella bowls? I don't think I've ever seen the whole set.

  2. They are the horizon Cinderella set. I bought three of them from Goodwill online (from my area) and completed it through eBay. I would do more through the online store, but you can only pick up during normal business hours so it makes it hard for a working momma. I still got the set for less than what it would sell for completely. Horizon blue has turned out to be my passion. I will continue to seek out that collection most of all, regardless of space.

  3. You have a nice collection started! I love Horizon blue too, such a pretty shade of blue! I found a couple pieces from the round casserole set at Goodwill a while back; I'll have to take some pictures and post them. These kinds of finds are very rare at our Goodwill too and they don't have online shopping either.

  4. I'm so jealous of your Horizon 442! It's all I need to complete the set of Cinderalla bowls and I can't seem to find one.

  5. This is the perfect webpage for anyone who really wants to find out about
    this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to
    argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
