Pyrex For Sale!

Pyrex For Sale! 

 I am posting these on Toronto Kijiji, but would like to bring attention right here, too. As I go through all my boxes, will probably list a Blue Horizon casserole, maybe a Seville, pink cake pan & some Butterprint, too. I'm not even sure what else has got to go.

I am downsizing my collection as I am downsizing my apartment size & I seriously can't believe the amount of stuff I accumulated. I am also selling some New Kids on the Block dolls & Pee Wee Herman DVDs! Ridding myself of my CD collection. This isn't like me, but whatever! To be honest, I'll be using the money to buy more stuff that is on my wishlist!

I found some!

Pyrex finds have been few and far apart lately.

And the few times I spot some it is oh so sad
                                           Really??? .99 cents for this???

                                On my last roadtrip to NY state I found these super cute
                                 Pyrex Restaurant Ware side dishes.

                                             The stamps says Double Tough!

                                             And what do you know? I didn't have those!


                                             Later on on my blog I will be blogging about Cheesy Baked Quinoa
                                             In Pyrex of course! Drop by for a visit!

New Years Request

Happy after the holidays, fellow pyrex lovers! 

I hope everyone had their pyrex wishes come true or at least got a nice new (to you) piece of pyrex gifted to you.

Like many of us of the first pyrex blog, I have not posted anything for a really really long time as I haven't been thrifting in months.  Ok settle down. Stop gasping.  Yes!  Such a thing is possible when (and this is really a legitimate excuse) you have so much pyrex (I believe that I'm over the 400 piece mark) that what is at the thrifts you already own.  (I keep track by pattern as a list on my iPhone).  Yes there are many pieces that I don't own, but for the time and gas money it takes to go peruse the thrifts, I find that if I need to get my pyrex fix that I end up at antique malls.

The good and the bad at the antique malls: prices are higher, but often there is a selection of pieces which is great if you are trying to complete a set or two. Often this ends up being less expensive than etsy or ebay when you factor for the crazy cost of shipping.

That being said, I've got two bowl sets that I'm close to completing and would be interested in trading pyrex if anyone was interested.  I am looking for a snowflake garland 441 to complete a set to gift to a friend, and also a red homestead 443 to complete a set for myself

I've got duplicates of a few pieces and others that I would be ok to let go for a decent trade.  Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in trading.  Extra brownie points for you if you happen to  live in the san francisco bay area and can do a local trade.

Thanks pyrex friends!!

Primary Dots- Complete!

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! (for more of my photos, feel to check out and follow my Flickr- you can find me here!
