|Cosmo casserole from Elizabeth, unusual Square Flowers casserole from Jenna, and recently thrifted Horizon/Scrolls cinderella bowl|
A few weeks back you might remember my rant about the ridiculous price an antique mall dealer put on a Cosmopolitan Casserole. Well, fellow Pyrex Collective-ite Elizabeth posted a comment to say that she actually had the bottom of the casserole (to match the lonely lid that I had found). After a few emails, the Cosmo bottom was on its way to me, while a couple of butterfly gold pieces were on their way to Elizabeth. I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have a complete Cosmo!!
This was actually only my second trade - the first one being a great trade with Jenna (from Pyrex Collective II). Ok, let me qualify that - a great trade for me....not so great for her as the *#@* post office decided to manhandle the package I sent and two of the pieces arrived in, well, pieces. Word of advice - Insurance!
Needless to say, I was very nervous about the post office's performance for my second trade with Elizabeth, but lo and behold, package insurance does wonders for encouraging them to *be careful*!
Anyway, thanks ladies for the great trades! More photos of the rest of my trade with Jenna coming soon to my website... Harriet and Quince
