Major Pyrex haul!
Check this out!
I found the two baking pans at one GW.
The flamingo square pan was not in good shape but I thought the glaze on the outside looked ok and a good scrubbing would save it. Unfortunately, after cleaning off the grime, I realized that this poor girl has dishwasher effect and I couldn`t get rid of the discolouration on the inside. Oh, and there`s a big scrape on the glaze that I suspect happened after it was donated because there was no dirt caked into the scrape...how sad!
The green baking pan turns out to be a Heinz promo utility dish and is quite minty. It was priced $3.03 so at half price, I ended up only paying $1.52 for it. Score!!
On the way to another nearby GW, I saw a rummage sale sign and I quickly pulled over. It was being held in a nursing home and the parking lot was jam packed! I didn`t realize they held rummage sales on Fridays. This turned out to be really great one with tons of stuff. I found 13 of these torquise autumn band Pyrex sauce dishes:
I found out from the lady running that table that there had been matching cups and dishes but they had been sold already (sadly). There was also a huge stack of grey band and grey autumn band dishes, but they were not in great shape so I left them. I paid $1.25 for all 13 of these sauce dishes. Now when I have a sushi party, everyone will have a pretty little Pyrex dish for their soy sauce.
My best finds of the day were at the second GW I went to. That place was so crowded I honestly didn`t think there would be anything left. But a quick stroll through the housewares sections and I found these:
That`s right, not one but two large designs casseroles!! And they were only priced at $5.05 each, which meant I paid that for both because it was half price day!!! I also found the flameware teapot and large perculator. For all four items, I paid just over $8...talk about a steal!!!!!
It was so surreal I thought I was dreaming!
Since I found two designs casseroles, I decided to give one of them to one of my new Pyrex friends who had just gifted me with Pyrex the day before. It turned out that she had been looking for the large designs casserole for some time because she had the small one already. I was so happy that I could return the favour!! It was giddiness all around. :)
Do you share the joys of Pyrex or thrifting with others?
