Two weeks ago I was hunting through an antique mall and came across the 2 1/2 QT Black Snowflake casserole. It was 17 bucks (on sale with no lid!) and the bottom was super scratched up and chipped, so I reluctantly put it back. Serendipity was on my side becase three days later I walk into my favorite thrift shop (The Arc, Tempe, AZ) and BAM! I snatched this baby up for four bucks. It didn't have a lid, but since I pick up random pyrex lids whenever I see them, I had a spare. I was so, so happy!
The story gets better! Two days after I score the oval casserole - I'm in a different thrift shop across town and I spot this 2 QT casserole in Black Snowflake! This one had a lid and set me back 8 clams, but I was so excited, I'd have paid anything really. Well, not anything, but a lot!
Here is the pair together - all ready to spread some happy holiday cheer!
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! I'm looking forward to some post holiday Pyrex pics featuring Christmas feasts =)
