My Pyrex find and some I passed by



I did some shopping on Saturday and found a few good bargains. I have a Pyrex casserole dish and have been wanting the rack that it sets in. But I figured it was a long shot finding one much less finding one that fit. This was at a local thrift store for .25 cents so I thought it was worth taking a chance on.


And it was a perfect fit for my snowflake casserole Pyrex. I just need to find a lit now. 


At a local antique store, I found this Pyrex Early American divided oval veggie dish. It was $6.50, which is more than I usually pay, but for a unique pattern AND at an antique store, I snatched it up at that price. 


You may recall last spring I went to an estate sale and found a glass like one I had a set of years ago. It was my favorite glass ever and I was heart broken when the last one got cracked. I was going to buy the one at the estate sale but the man over it decided he had too many nostalgic memories of it and wouldn't sell it to me. I found this in an obscure corner in the antique store so I grabbed it. They only had one, but that's okay because hubby wasn't as fond of them as I was. I can mark this off my wish list now. 


That was all I bought, but I did see some other items that I debated over. I find it funny that the minute I decided I wanted the Hamilton Beach mixing bowl, I found one on Craig's List but didn't buy it because with shipping it was $15 - $18. Well, the first booth I went in at the antique store had one in it. It was $14.00. Then the next booth had one for $12.00. Since I am seeing them everywhere now and the price keeps getting lower, I am going to hold out before I get one. It's not like I have to have it right now.


This was a Pyrex dish that I had never seen before. It is Golden Honeysuckle oblong 4 quart casserole dish. It was huge. I should have bought it. They were asking $12.00, but you just don't see something like this everyday. 


I can't remember if this was Pyrex or Fireking or maybe even Glasbake. I didn't think to check the bottom and I can't find the pattern anywhere. Has anyone ever seen this pattern?


They had a lot of Corelle and Pyrex, but what I would love to have is the utility stand it is on. Mom had one for years and years when we were growing up. I'm just not sure how it would have held up to restoration.


I would also have liked this old step stool but wouldn't have anywhere to put it.


I liked this juice pitcher, but not for $12.50


They had so much Pyrex, I need to go back again soon.  


On E-bay last week, I saw where someone had a rare pattern Cinderella starter set still in the original box. The minute they put it up for auction they had one bid of $150.00. My eyes about popped out of my head when I went to see what it sold for.....$355.00. I cannot imagine in my wildest dreams paying that. As much as I love Pyrex, I quiver at the thought of paying over $10.00 for any of it. You just never know what this stuff is going to be worth to somebody.
