Hi, again, fellow Pyrex collectors! Since my post from the other day when I mentioned that I was only collecting 403 bowls, things have changed and I have obviously thrown that idea out the window and bought much more - and I couldn't be happier with my finds! If I ever had a window of opportunity to avoid catching Pyrexia, well, that ship has sailed, and it has sailed quickly.
I decided to go on a thrifting extravaganza on Friday, and I ended up staying out all afternoon and into the evening, hitting up every second-hand store I could before they closed for the day. I had a great time, and I found three Woodland mugs (bought for my mom, who has other pieces in this pattern) for $1 each, a 403 Homestead bowl for $3.99, a 401 Horizon Blue bowl for $1.99, a clear glass jug with stopper for $2 (does anyone know anything about this piece?), and three Butterfly Gold mugs for $1 each. Yay!
I also have to share the crazy, wild giddiness I felt after leaving each store with my loot. I texted my mom mid-thift, and then called her as soon as I got home. She answered the phone not with "Hello?" but with "Tell me what you got!!" I squealed with delight, and we immediately got right down to Pyrex business...
