I received an email from Jeff regarding his company's need for bloggers writing about Pyrex. Please read and email Jeff if interested.
Thanks,

Hi Pyrex Collective:
We just saw your awesome blog about vintage Pyrex glassware and are reaching out to Pyrex collectors to help celebrate the upcoming Pyrex glassware 100th Anniversary.

As the digital content company of Pyrex, we are looking for a few passionate Pyrex collectors to create a guest blog about collecting vintage Pyrex. 

Couple of things to cover, and then you can let me know if you're interested. 

- Contact me by email at jnowak581@gmail.com if interested
- Provide links to your other blogs and photos so I can see your talent and passion
- We would give you up to 1 month to create your guest blog, which will be posted on the Pyrex glassware web site if accepted

Please let me know if interested,and I can share additional details about the guest blog assignment.

Sir Thrift-A-Lot's Pyrex Haiku!

You're really testing my skills here, I haven't written one of these since like grade 3! 

Red, yellow, green, blue
Primary set I need you
5 years now you're due

I don't have a grime piece of Pyrex, but I do have one that had utensil marks that I cleaned up... I bought it to do some testing (I feel like a mad scientist! ). UTENSIL MARKS & HARD WATER STAINS AWAY! 



Well, I am having a problem with my phone, so no after photos... maybe in the near future? 

& can you believe I do not think I have a beautiful set of primary bowls? Hah.

Contest Extension


We still have two Bar Keepers Friend gift baskets to hand out for PCI and PCII. I'm going to extend the contest until next Friday the 15th. If there are still no entries, we'll open up the contest again to PCIII. 

Thanks again to Bar Keepers Friend for their generous gifts. If you know of any BKF posts I can tell them about, please let me know via email. This company is jazzed about Pyrex. 

Thanks,
Canadian Erin

Let the Contest Begin!


Alright pretty Pyrex people. 
We had a few great contest ideas. Here's what we want: 

1. A photo of your most baked on, caked on Pyrex that has stubborn oven stains, etc. 

2. A Haiku about your favourite Pyrex score. Being a teacher, I like the language tie-in. Here's a reminder about Haiku. It's poem with three lines. Traditionally, the first line has five syllables, the second has seven, and the third has five. 

Please title your post something with the word 'Contest' in it, so I don't miss it. This Friday I'll take the names of everyone who entered from each Pyrex Collective site. Names will be cut up and put in a Pyrex bowl. I'll get my son to pick the winner. 

* If I only get one response from a PC site, they will win. I will email the lucky winners to get mailing info which I will forward to the good people at Bar Keepers Friend. 

Please use one of their products to clean your grubby Pyrex and post an 'after' photo. Thanks to Sir Thrift-a-lot for being such a proper contest idea generator! 

Have fun and rock on!
Erin

Bar Keepers Friend Contest

Hello my Pyrex Buddies,

Over the years people have written about the proper way to clean vintage Pyrex. Bar Keepers Friend is a name that has popped up frequently as a cleaning agent that works for removing some stains from vintage Pyrex.

I was approached in good spirit by a representative from Bar Keepers Friend to do some publicity for the product. They have generously offered the gift basket you see pictured for each of the three Pyrex Collectives.

Do you have an idea for a contest?

Please email me with ideas. I will take submissions by the end of the weekend and hope to launch the contest next Monday.

Sincerely,
Canadian Erin

Pyrex FSOT in Toronto

Pyrex For Sale or Trade in Toronto

I live downtown Toronto (closest subway - College Park). All are currently listed on Kijiji. You can contact me through the email in my profile on blogger. 

You know, it's funny. I listed some Pyrex pieces on Kijiji, lidless for $5 Spring Blossom Green 475. No bites & I was moving, so I just donated them. Priced $9.99 at the thrift store, they didn't sit for too long. One longer than the other, but you could have got 2 for the price of 1 & not paid any taxes if you had bought from me!





Thanks for looking...
will post some more items for sale or trade on my blog in the near future. 
I also have 401,402,403,501,502 Butterprint to trade.
