I went to my first flea market this morning with two friends. It was so much fun! Such a beautiful day to wander around the outside market looking for treasures. :)
As soon as I went in, I quickly spotted a table with Pyrex. There was a complete set of friendship cinderella bowls! It was marked at $27, which I was pretty excited see. Taking a closer look, I noticed a lot of little scratches but not bad. Here is the 441 to give you an idea of the condition.
My thrifting friend already had all but the 444 from the friendship set so we were searching for that one, but sadly the only friendship 444s we found were pretty scratched up and the sellers were asking $18 for that bowl alone! So the prices were definitely all over the map.
At a few other reasonably priced booths, I snagged a few other pieces. I got a whole set of butterprint serve 'n stores (all with lids!) for $20. Another booth was selling just one of those casseroles without the lid for $20! Also picked up a horizon 503 without lid for $4 (I have an extra lid for it I picked up over a month ago) and one of the twin server casseroles for $3.50.
I also left behind some good/great deals: butterprint 444 for only $4 (I already have two of those but it took a lot of will power not to snag this one too...still kinda wish I bought it, if only for trading), a snowflake garland 043 and 444 for $10 each, charcoal snowflake divided for $15 etc...there were tons of Pyrex to be had!! I was saddest about leaving behind a blue stripe bowl but it was really very badly scratched. :(
Here's my haul for just under $50:
I officially love flea market shopping! There's great things to be found at thrift store-type pricing and the selection is amazing! It was far but well worth the drive. I will definitely go back before it closes for the season.
I'm off to check out what treasure others found at ApronThriftGirl.
