Pyrex Sighting- for fun

So, my husband and I own a Rita's and for fun our family and friends shot this video. I was not part of the video, but it is shot at my house. Can you spy the pyrex that makes it into one scene. Enjoy the short video, it makes me laugh each time I see it. Happy pyrex- hunting tomorrow!

Another Completed Set!

Hi everyone, Erica from Pyrex Thrifter Sisters here!

I haven't been having too much luck with Pyrex at the thrifts around here.  It's not due to a lack of Pyrex (thank goodness).  It's just that I have to be more selective in my purchases due to a space restriction.  I mostly stick with pink, turquoise/aqua, Friendship, and Primary and we all know how difficult it can be to come across some of those patterns/colors in the wild. 

Well luck was on my side the other day when I came across this little cutie at St. Vincent de Paul

This is the 401 bowl from the Americana Blue set, which I thought I already had but I bought it as a back up just in case. Plus, I was desperate for Pyrex so I couldn't leave it behind.

Well, I was wrong about already having that bowl.  What I really had was the 402 bowl from the set.  This is the one and only piece of Pyrex that I have ever found at our local Value Village.  I picked it up about 2 years ago when I very first started collecting.

Shortly after that Value Village score, I found the 403 to the set at a local antique mall.

A quick scan of my new Pyrex Passion book showed me that although these are numbered with 4's, there are actually only 3 bowls in the set.

Know what that means, Pyrex friends?

Eeeeek!  I have the whole set!  I don't know about you, but these three bowls are the only bowls I have ever seen in the Americana Blue set.  I see the bowls from the brown set from time to time, but never the prettier blue.  I would like to believe that this is a pretty rare set and one of the harder ones to put together.

Yay for me & just in time for the patriotic holiday season!

Have a lovely week,

Calling Pyrex Collectors

Hello there,

A woman by the name of Catherine May emailed me with a request. She works for a Toronto television company that is producing a new series called Collectors which features various collectors throughout Canada and the U.S. She would love to find a rabid vintage Pyrex collector to feature on the show.

If you are interested, please email Catherine at

All the best,
Canadian Erin

Pretty, Pretty, Pretty!

Come over and say hello at my blog too, Everyone Goes to Mick's.

Hush Hush!

Im a big country music fan and I love the group Pistol Annies which features Miranda Lambert, well the ladies just released a music video for their single "Hush Hush" and it's full of pyrex! I saw gooseberry, butterprint, desgins, spring blossom and potentially a lime green pie plate!

Here's the link if anyone wants to see if I missed any!

Buffet Twins

I found a set of Buffet Twins at the antique mall. I paid ten for the set, no lids or cradle. I think they are charming. :)

I just finished my master's program and feel so much space opening in my mind without that looming  around. :) I work full-time and have two toddlers, so it isn't like I am twiddling my thumbs, but I can dream about more pyrex!:)

Happy Spring, or graduation or Cinco De Mayo or whatever you want to celebrate!
