This past weekend I managed to snag 5 pieces of Pyrex for $20! I felt like I hit the jackpot!
My first purchase was at the yuppie thrift store - the divided golden acorn piece complete with lid for $5! The Forest Fancies casserole came from another thrift store for $2. It is in amazing shape. This is my first Forest Fancies piece, and probably my last. I'm not a huge fan of the pattern, but it was in such good shape I couldn't pass it up. Plus, I try to have at least one piece from each pattern in my collection. I picked up the two Butterprint fridgies at a grungy outdoor flea market that is always hit and miss. But, I was there at the end of the day and got a deal on the pair! The larger one was priced at $3, but the small one didn't have a price. When I inquired about it to the lady running the booth, she told me she didn't want to have to pack them up and take them home, so I could have both of them for $3 - sold! (She could have asked $3 for the little one as well and I would have taken it, but she didn't need to know that...). My most expensive piece was the yellow New Dots bowl, which I picked up in an antique store for $10. This is my first New Dots piece and hopefully I will eventually run across all of the pieces without resorting to buying online.
