This Must Be My Lucky Week....


Since I have started collecting Pyrex, I have been really trying to complete sets.  So far since last summer, I have completed a total of 3, one of which being the New Dots set I posted about earlier in the week.  Well, this must be my lucky week because not only did I complete that set, I completed 2 others...

I won the #442 Butterprint Cinderella bowl on eBay from a seller who had it listed as "Amish Buttercup".  I stumbled upon it completely by accident and had zero competition in regards to bids.  I ended up paying the ridiculously low start price and even with shipping I got it for far less than I have seen it in any antique or thrift store. 
I found the red 402 at Goodwill for $3.99.  It's not in the best shape.  Some of the paint is starting to come away from the rim but it will work for now.  I still think this set is beatiful.  Sometimes it's a good thing to show a little age.

Have a Great Thursday Pyrex Friends!

  2. Pyrex off of eBay seems like "cheating" to me. I mean, you know its going to be there so theres no "fun" in it.

      I think it just sounds like you aren't addicted to Pyrex yet, right sister? :)

    2. I agree. I like to find Pyrex on my own. It does make it much more exciting. But sometimes I come across a great deal on a bowl I need that I just can't pass up.

  3. Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe the friendship set included an orange 402. That red belongs to the Primary colors set. It's definitely pretty with two red bowls, though.

    1. I think you are right. On Pyrex Love it says that the 402 is actually an orange red and is often confused with the red 402 from the Primary set. I think it will do for now though. Thanks for your input :-)

  4. Congrats on completing your Butterprint set!! I love your Friendship set even though it's not "technically" correct. It looks great!
