Hi everyone! First time poster here. I've been lurking and er, drooling for awhile now and finally took the plunge to join up and share my obsession with people who get it =) I wanted to share a story with my first post, so here goes.
I'm an avid thrift shopper and garage mariner. I hopped out of bed super early on Friday to hit some estate sales which were a total bust. On my way home I stopped at a random yard sale and was leaving emtpy handed when I noticed a bit of aqua colored plastic peaking out from a paper bag under a table. Since I'm also a collector of vintage Tupperware my heart started pitter pattering. When I excavated the Tupperware (a lovely bread loaf container) I saw this beauty buried in the bag beneath random TW lids:
I scored the Tupperware AND the big yellow Primary bowl for one whole dollar. It absolutely made my day. The forces that rule Pyrex weren't done with me, however. On Saturday I hit a thrift shop and the jackpot!
Spring Blossom is the set I primarily collect and to add new pieces is such a great feeling. The gravy boat and tray, the Pyrex coffee mugs and the margarine tub were all additions to my collection. The Fire King platter was just a happy gift from the universe =)
Lastly, just wanted to say thank you to the creators and contributors of this great blog!
