I finally completed my Primary Dots set in February of this year. I collected each piece from a different source. The often pricey Green Dot 404 was my final piece- an Etsy score for only $50. The only one I found "in the wild" was the Yellow Dot 402 and it was at a local antique mall for $10. I bought the Orange Dot 401 on eBay for $9.99. Blue Dot 403 was also an eBay purchase for $26.06- an auction win. So, my Primary Dots together cost me $100.04. Not too bad?! Now for some Pyrex eye candy!

I feel so ashamed as an avid vintage Pyrex collector- it has been ages since I've blogged here! I will share my latest find. I had stopped frequenting my two local antique malls because they were Pyrex-dry. I decided to stop by one a couple of weeks ago and I spotted this beauty after passing it up once. I had actually never seen this one before so I was intrigued. I immediately came home and went to my Flickr for reference. It is unofficially called Ginger Oriental. It is a 475 promo casserole. It originally came with the classic clear lid and a bamboo cradle. Mine is MINT but no cradle. At only $19 I was totally okay with no cradle! I also scored one of the last few pieces I need to have the complete Butterfly Gold 1 collection. It is minty and was only $7. So, sorry I've been MIA. I will try to go back and share more of my Pyrex adventures! Hope everyone is having a wonderful season and Happy Pyrex-ing!

Above, you will find my new Moon Deco casserole dish. I just think it's the coolest Pyrex design ever. It was also my most expensive single purchase, but there is a story...
We were at the Southwarks antique mall in Cambridge, ON last week. My husband came walking towards me with the dish in his hands and asked if $28 was a fair price. I almost grabbed it out of his hands. "Yes!" The truth is that I don't know what's a fair price, but I do know that at another booth at the same place, the exact same dish has been sitting on the shelf for at least a year. The seller is asking over $80.00 for it. To me, that's grocery shopping money. I was going to treat myself to it down the road if I came into windfall money, but who knows if that day would have come, or even if I could have ever justified spending that much on one piece of Pyrex.
The moral of the story once again is that you have to keep on looking because you just don't know what you'll ever find.

I just wanted to post this ad from eBay.
So that Gooseberry on the top with the burner & lid - it was actually sold that way? That colour in JAJ is also a nesting set? Anybody know?
It's that coral red colour. I love when people discard JAJ bowls at the thrifts after pulling back the sticker & not seeing that PYREX mark.
I once saw that four set cup set thing in the bottom, but it was like $42.
