We made it to the shop about 30 min before they closed. They had a lot of pyrex in the place. Most of it was way overpriced and half of it was not in mint condition or even close to a decent asking price for something in that type of shape. Silly vendors.. no one wants to pay top dollar for damaged pyrex! Just because it is pyrex doesn't mean that it is automatically valuable. Us pyrex collectors know what we're looking for!!!
So... low and behold we turn a corner after being hit by inflated prices and my husband see's tucked into a corner this wonderful 11x15 (I think.. it's larger than a 9x13) Friendship baking dish. It was love at first sight. This was the first one I saw. Even marked at $18 I knew it would be mine and will stay in my personal collection. Several booths over I see a second one and it was marked at $26.95... way too much for my wallet.
Isn't it a beauty!!
After gathering this treasure we wander for a bit more and I come across the 4 qt Red Cinderella in almost mint condition. This baby also made it home with me and is going into my own personal collection. I paid more than I would normally have, but I don't think I'm going to find a red pyrex 4 qt cinderella in a GW, VV or any other thrift for a long long time. So... I bought it.
On the drive home I jokingly, but half seriously said to my husband.... "I wonder if there is a GW close by". He pulls out the GPS for me and there is one on the way... 7 mins from where we are. I so love my husband! :)
The GW was really dingy and run down... but what do I find? and for $3.99!! A 1959 Compass Snack Server!! Hot digity!!
Ok... I'm done. I just had to share! I think I'm beside myself with pyrex giddiness today...
