For a Pyrex "Cracker Barrel" or "Cookie Jar" for quite a while. Up until last week I'd never seen one in person, just pictures online. One day last week I decided to make a really quick stop into our local Salvation Army. I rarely go there because they never seem to have anything. So, I went in not expecting to find anything. The shelves had no Pyrex, not even lids. Then, as I was walking away I noticed a big cart full of stuff that the SA lady was putting out. I looked down and what did I see.....I saw this!! It was marked $4, but when I got to the checkout the cashier said $2. I guess it must have been half price day!! I was a happy girl...er lady!!
I also made a couple of stops last week at two different GW's, and this is what I found. It seems like once I find Pyrex at one GW, then all the other ones seem to have some too. Kind of weird but true.
I wasn't going to get this next bowl, because I already have a 401 Butterfly Gold, but the price was right, and I really, really have a very hard time passing up ANY Pyrex! I also figured I could trade it out or give it to my son. Imagine my surprise when I got home and found out that the pattern on this little cutie is different from the pattern on my other Butterfly Gold Pyrex. So, I'm glad I got it.
I also found this for my son. He's started collecting just the Homestead pattern. We'll see how long that lasts.......LOL!!
