Walking into an unadvertised estate sale (my favorite kind), I spotted the telltale pattern of my beloved Pink Gooseberry in the refrigerator set. This set is one that I had been coveting forever and had yet to see the whole set in person. I had even come this close to buying it online after having one (or a few) vodka soda's. But even in my semi-inebriated state couldn't bring myself to pay the inflated shipping cost.
After shoving my unsuspecting daughter out of the way (sorry, Maddy), I swooped in and grabbed every single piece, not daring to stop to check out the prices until I was safely away from other shoppers. Who knows what may have happened had someone tried to take it away from me? But really, would the prices have mattered? Probably not.
Well, the set was complete and each piece with the lid was individually priced. Are you ready for this, dear readers?
(2) 501's with lids-$1.50 each
(1) 502 with lid-$2.50
(1) 503 with lid-$3.50
For those of you who don't want to do the math on a Friday night after a long week, THAT'S $7.50 FOR THE WHOLE SET!!!! (sorry to shout but you can understand how excited I am).
Did I happen to mention that I am pretty sure that they were never used?
Oh, and if that wasn't enough to cause me to experience a serious case of Pyrex swoon, how about these too
An entire set of Butterprint for $5.00. Also minty. Also all mine. Duplicates for me but who cares?
I highly doubt this will ever happen again but this score will hold me over for a lifetime.
Good luck this weekend, Pyrex hunters!
P.S., please tell me that I am not the only one who surfs the internet for Pyrex while slightly intoxicated.
