Pink Pyrex. Finally!
Well, it feels like so long. In reality, it's been about two years. But still, out of all the antique stores I've visited, all the thrift stores, I've seen this solid, bubble-gum pink exactly twice. The first time was a solid pink, round 024 casserole - which I bought (and love). The second time, however, was this past Valentine's Day, when we ventured to Georgia to hit up some antique stores we only visit maybe once or twice a year. This is where I saw a tiny pink fridgie, absolutely dish-washed, but still with an 18 dollar price tag. Ugh! No thank you!
These guys were online purchases. A very, very rare thing for me. Now, most people say the reason they don't buy online is because they don't get 'the thrill of the hunt'. That doesn't really hold true for me. The biggest reason I don't buy online is because A) I don't get to check the condition first and B) I'm a cheapskate. I don't want to pay for shipping!
Case in point, I won these fridgies for less than 14 bucks for the two of them. A very reasonable price for pink, in my opinion. But the shipping and handling cost slightly more than the winning bid, bringing the total up to 30 bucks. Which is STILL, I think, a good price. If I'm lucky enough to complete this set for 30 more dollars, I'll count myself fortunate.
