Promotional Party!

Hello fellow Pyrex fanatics!  It has been a while since I have been this excited about my Pyrex finds.  I actually feel like all I've been doing lately is complaining about how bad the Pyrex drought has been and commenting on my Goodwill conspiracy theory.  Well, maybe I am speaking too soon, but I think things may be turning around out here on the Oregon coast.  I do feel like I'm paying a bit more for pieces then I did in the past, but when I love a piece and its going in my collection, its totally worth it.  Here are my 3 new finds:

 A 2 quart promotional piece from 1959: Behold the Golden Tulip!  Not in the best shape, but I really love this pattern
My favorite find because of the color:  Medallion, a promotional piece from 1962.  This one is so hard to photograph, but it is a beautiful minty green color.
And finally, this gem here is called Golden Classic, and is a promotional casserole from 1962.  It is 2 1/2 quarts, which I think is such a great size for casseroles.  I don't feel like the picture does this one justice either, it is such a vibrant yellow in person.  I paid $6.99 for this one, but I couldn't resist!

Lets hope the luck continues!
Happy thifting!

  1. I just went 0-4 today so I'm happy to see that it's picked up somewhere! I have none of these and am living vicariously through you. Actually, I'm -1 today because I broke an orange dots bowl. I've got to get my head back in the game!

  2. Love the Medallion.. wow So much Pyrex....so little time..LOL

  3. Wonderful finds! And $6.99 is a great price for a promo like that. We have a thrift here that charges $8.99 for most pieces, even common ones in ok shape, so you did great. :)

  4. That Golden Classic makes me so happy!

  5. Those pieces are so stylish! Hard to believe they 50 years old and look so good. if only, I could say the same!
