The Ones That Got Away

Recently,  I have seen on blogs where people have had great success finding Pyrex on Craigslist. So not wanting to miss out I tried it too. The first attempt was successful. I found a yard sale that advertised a lot of Pyrex. I found a Golden Acorn casserole dish with lid and a primary red fridgie with lid (not in the best condition but for a dollar who could complain). I paid my $8 and left happy as a lark.

Fast forward to last night. I thought I would peruse the pages of Craigslist again to see if there were anymore treasures out there for me. I got very excited when I came across these:

A complete set of Pyrex Square Flowers cinderella mixing bowls. I thought I had died and went to Heaven And the best part... only $5 for the set!!!! What!!!!!!!! 

I was so excited that I wanted to call right away. Who wouldn't right? Well my husband AKA Mr. Killjoy pointed out that it wasn't our local Craigslist that I was looking at, it was the  Santa Barbara Craigslist. Santa Barbara is 2 hours away from where we live! " (  How could Craig and his list be so mean?

This just means that there is something great and wonderful waiting at the local thrift for me. So take that Craig!!!


  1. Craigslistis the best source for finding garage sales in my area. My favorite Pyrex is anything in pink.

  2. umm, i prob would have called first then jumped in the car. can anyone say pyrex road trip? :) happy shopping

  3. Don't think that thought didn't cross my mind. LOL

  4. For only $5 it was probably a scam or something...I would be skeptical but definitely tempted to make the drive! :)

  5. Aw, too bad it wasn't closer. That's a nice set for an unbelievable price!
