After a Pyrex Famine....

Well, I haven't been buying much Pyrex lately. Not sure why. Haven't seen anything I wanted. Or worth the space in my inventory. Or in good condition. Or not horribly overpriced. Or all of the above.

Then the other day I saw these:

What was noteworthy is that I was at Value Village which is notorious for overpricing...especially the Pyrex. But for some reason these were not.

And all 4 pieces were there.
After a quick text to Hubby for input, I got them all for less than $10. (had a coupon)

Hubs is the Shipping Department and he's been trying to steer me away from large and breakable. But he gave the go ahead...so I went ahead.

If I wasn't already committed to the turquoise....we'd be tempted to keep them...Hubby likes this pattern too.
At home I found one little chip on the 404. But a smooth one, not sharp. Not a dealbreaker, I don't think.

Ain't they purdy?


  1. Very purdy! Love them ... I think you made a great buy!

  2. Great find! That pattern always sells quickly in my booth.

  3. What a treat to find a nice collection of Pyrex at a reasonable price.

  4. Wow that's a great price...I frequent a Savers (American VV) and their prices on Pyrex have skyrocketed since they opened a few months ago. They charge retail unless it is dirty. I don't help though, they had a set (minus smallest bowl) of pink gooseberry, nearly mint, for $50 and I bought it lol

  5. Such a great price for those and they look to be nice and shiny! What is one little chip?!
