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,
