road trip pyrex finds

Last month I went on a three-week road trip to celebrate the release of my new craft business book. Along the way I didn't do as much thrifting as you might've expected (mainly because I recently quit my job to go freelance!). But I did make a few Pyrex finds:

The beautiful pink-on-white gooseberry casserole with lid was a gift from my friend Jessica, who is a master thrifter. The larger spring blossom casserole with white lid I found at a junk shop for $6. Last week I found two small yellow square dip bowls from the chip and dip set for $2 each.

On my road trip, I stopped by the Corning Museum of Glass, which was awesome. I stayed near Pyrex Street, no joke!

I spent a lot of time at the museum and its library doing research on Pyrex. :)

I was fully intending on taking it easy on Pyrex acquisitions now that I'm funemployed, but then I found this casserole with lid and holder today at my local St. Vincent De Paul for $7. I've never encountered this gold on green pattern before -- can anyone identify it?

  5. I am loving this post! As someone who too collects Pryex of the vintage variety, I was thrilled to see this! I have found some of my best finds at garage sales and flea markets. I hope to share some of my newest finds with you soon. Have a great week!

    Strive to thrive,
