200th post

This is my 200th post :-)  And later this summer will be my 5th year blogaversary. I've updated pretty sporadically but it's been neat having a record of when I've bought what - assuming I remembered to blog it in the first place.

I've all but stopped shopping and thrifting lately. Life swings up sometimes and just derails the fun. But I did get to go out once last week and found something pretty cool! So I'm happy.

This was my one thrift find. I had no idea they made this Medallion pattern on a pie plate. I thought when I first saw it that it was the Blue Cornflower pattern I've passed up a few times before. 

Hubs and I hit up several more thrift stores and a couple of antique stores, but bought nothing else. I commented that I thought I was going to go home pretty much empty handed today. But at the last place we stopped I found these:

Several years ago, I bought 3 of these bowls online and I've been missing the smallest one ever since. This set was complete - pricey, but way less than ebay, so I went for it. This is one of those Pyrex sets I'd buy in triplicate or worse as long as the price was something I could live with.

Hope you're finding nifty treats and treasures!

Happy Thrifting!


  1. I have no problem buying things that I already have if the price is below what I can get it for anywhere else. I will either use it as a backup or sell it depending on if it's worth dealing with the packaging and shipping. That way, I can pay for some of my other higher priced purchases and not feel so bad about it! Want to hear something crazy? I bought that exact same set at an antique mall in the town I grew up in for $30. Easily one of my best Pyrex purchases ever!

    Congrats on you 200th post!


  2. The 441 is the one I need. Orange Butterprint is a beautiful pattern. I'd buy this pattern until the cows came home... (but only if it were a good deal!). I got the 444 & 443 for $10 $ the 442 for $10.
