I was so distraught, a beautiful blue casserole covered in some type of paint. What were they thinking? It was $5 and the store was cash only (and I was cashless. What was I thinking, thrifting without cash?) My husband and I had to leave without it, but after I finished running errands I just had to go back and rescue this poor thing. I stopped at an ATM and got a 20, went back, and then the woman didn't have change! Somehow, I managed to get $5 in change out of the hubby (I now appreciate when I have to empty the mass amount of change out of his pockets while doing laundry.)
I got it home and started peeling the paint off. I was really worried the gold was going to come right off with it, but nope, it was my lucky day. Below this layer of abuse, was this beautiful gem: 1 1/2 quart Golden Bouquet, a pattern new to me:
What I learned today? Always carry small bills, don't give up, and best of all, some abused Pyrex is possible to save! Happy Thrifting!
