We’ve been trying to cut down on our pyrex “acquisition” lately. Still, it’s a little difficult to pass up things when they are a pretty good deal.
These 6 mugs were about three dollars, which while not dirt cheap is pretty good for 1410 style Pyrex mugs. Usually we only see the Old Town Blue pattern in this style. Three mugs in Butterfly Gold and three mugs in Summer Impressions, Ginger. These came from a thrift shop - there were actually more but I didn’t pick up all of them.
Then there are the odd finds where people just think the pattern is too common, or maybe they think it’s a newer item. For the casserole below, I thought the LID was 25 cents. When I picked it up and there was no price, I realized the entire casserole was a quarter. It looked brand new. This is a standard Spring Blossom #472 1.5 pint Bake Serve Store casserole.
Granted they aren’t extremely rare or promo items, but it’s fun to come away from a garage sale with something substantial and that you can use everday that isn’t cheap plastic.
