Thank you for letting me join the Pyrex collective. Happy to be here!
To tell you the truth, I never knew much about Pyrex, never really paid much thought to it, that is until I read the recent article in the paper. Well, then and there I was hooked! It's so retro-chic and affordable, how can you not love it? The only Pyrex I owned up to that point were two cranberry glass baking dishes. Nice and practical.
So I decided to check out the local Value Village and this was my first piece:
This Town and Country casserole is in good shape. I was thrilled with my first find. Then Hubby and I went to an antique mall, and while they had an amazing selection, the prices were a little hefty for my liking. I did acquire a few pieces anyway to get a bit of a start:
I then decided, after reading everybody's posts, that I would rather go for the thrill of the chase and look for the deals and bargains. Much more fun. Some people like to play golf, some people collect Pyrex!
Since then I've stopped at the local Value Village and Sally Ann at least once a week. My untrained eye almost missed this beautiful piece!
I have found a few other delicious pieces, but I'll save them for another post!
On a side note, I also collect vintage Barbies, her friends and their clothing up until about 1973. Something about that whole era appeals to me I guess!
