There was definitely less Pyrex than in recent years. And it's pretty much been replaced by Corningware. And I'm a fan of Corningware for sure, it's just that on the whole, I'd rather be finding cool Pyrex pieces.
As you can see, two little petite pans found their way home with me. A mid 80's to 90's pattern, aptly named "Pastel Bouquet". At two dollars apiece, that's more what I consider thrift store prices than antique, so they're coming home with me.
The Pyrex bowl set, Woodland pattern, I couldn't pass up. It's really minty and was 20 bucks. Not a great price, but way cheaper than most Pyrex I was seeing. Woodland makes me want to mix up a batch of brownies or chocolate chip cookies. Maybe I like the pattern cause it makes me hungry? :-)
The two pieces of Butterprint made me happy. They came out of a 40% off booth, and I got them for less than 10 bucks total. No lid on the fridgie. The little round 471 is from the solid Butterprint set that is all turquoise on white. I'm still missing most of these somewhat less common versions. I saw the all turquoise on white cinderella bowl set today for an up-chucking price of $120 dollars and to add insult to injury, the largest bowl was chipped. Crazy dealers!
My Best Deal of the day was the Hazel Atlas Ripple plates. 5 of them for 15 bucks! WHOO-HOO!
For the longest, longest time I've had nothing but 1 pink plate and two pink saucers. Then I found the turquoise set, a minty service for 6, all in one fell swoop. Now I have 6 pink plates. Really cool. Love them all so much!
I was very pleased to get out of the house and get to the antique stores I don't get to go much. It was a nice surprise day out.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
Happy Treasure Hunting!
