Promo find

Well pyrex friends, in my neck of the woods finding pyrex at a thrift store is like finding hens teeth. I have a few theories as to why but that's for another time. So today my mom and I went out to a local antique mall and amongst the over priced pieces I managed to find the 1960
Meadow promo casserole for $12! It was the fist time I'd come across this piece in person and with all it's turquoise glory I knew I had to have it! We also went to a local value village and I found a white 401 that they wanted $5.99 for but it had a couple chips on the bottom so I asked of they could do anything about the price and they gave it to me for 99 cents!!!! The chips are on the bottom and hardly noticeable!! It's my first piece of white pyrex and I am so happy to have it!!


  1. Great finds I find it hard to find pieces at the secondhand stores to.

  2. You did great - I love that Meadow - your picture of it really renders the "crispiness" of the pattern and how shiny it is. And a great price for you opal too.

  3. Beautiful! I love the Meadow casserole.

    I remember the time I bought my white 401, I haggled for the price; fairly; but the old lady was like Cerberus gardian of Hades!

    I won in the end :)
