New Additions.

Hello All!
This is my first post of what I hope to be many more.
These last few weeks have been hit and miss pyrex-wise.
I found these lovely pieces over three days at Value Village.

The 402 was $1.99,
The 473 was 3.99, and the lid was a separate item for 0.50,
and The 475 was 5.99.
All of which I thought was quite reasonable, especially since lately prices seem to be sky rocketing.

I also found this sad looking pink "casserole" dish yesterday at a different value village.

It looked okay at first, then, I flipped it over for this sight
that will for sure give me nightmares.

I couldn't just leave it there though, so I paid the 3.99 for it (damn you Value Village) and brought it home where it will never be abused again. It was a good week, and to think all this started because I found this wonderful set of Butterfly Gold at a yard sale for $5.00 this past summer! The rest was added over the next month. The casserole was 7 (lid included) at The Salvation Army, I also got the blue fridgie there for 3. The butter dish was a gift from my mother and the pink gooseberry bowl was $15.00 from an antique sale (it was weak moment, I just love it so much) The mug was 0.50, and there are 5 more of them! 

That's all for now, but I have so many more to show you!
until next time!
Happy pyrex trails!


  1. You've got the Pyrex bug - but it's so good!! Nice finds!

  2. Happy pyrex trails to you too. I'm getting in the spirit.

  3. Is it true that Value Village was bought up by Wal-Mart? Is that why the prices are getting higher? I miss Value Village, we have nothing like it in Sydney, and the SalvationArmy really over-prices EVERYTHING.

    Nice pieces by the way :)

  4. In my experience Value Village prices are still good, but it's definitely a lower-end place to shop. I went to one recently that was really stinky inside for some reason. At another VV I did find a red primary bowl for 97 cents, a yellow primary for $3 and lg daisy cinderella for $3. So yeah, prices much better than at Goodwill or Salvation Army.

  5. Thanks everyone!
    I have plenty more where that came from. (and yet, still not enough)
    I got the large primary yellow bowl for 5 at a goodwill, I find the prices to be comparable. It seems to depend on the day and I guess whoever is pricing that day. However, I seem to find more at VV than at Goodwill. A goodwill just opened up around the corner from me about 6 months ago and since then I've found 4 dishes (one was a english pyrex though) Whereas I've found 4 dishes in one week at the VV.

  6. VV isn't owned by Walmart. It's owned by a private equity investment fund and is definitely a for-profit enterprise.
