|Colonial Blue Pyrex|
This set, called Colonial Blue, was two dollars at a church sale. There was a lady digging through a box that hadn't yet been unpacked at this sale, and she found a whole set of this - marked one dollar. Lucky!
|Butterprint Cinderella Pyrex|
This set, called Butterprint, was six dollars at a garage sale down the street. I love this turquoise/aqua color! It was so fun to find the whole set in one place. These are called Cinderella bowls. They have a pouring spout and a handle.
Whenever I go to Goodwill, Value Village, garage sales, and thrift stores I look for pieces of pyrex. So far I have had the best luck at garage sales. Jeni's blog is a wealth of information on pyrex. She has a guide to common patterns, promotional patterns, guide to solids, numbering and sizes, and tips for cleaning pyrex. Another fun blog is Pyrex Love.
I know I have enough collections going on (fabric, beads, fabric) so I am trying to be selective and only pick the pieces that have a pattern or color I love, or a shape I will use. I am hoping to come across the Friendship bowls at some point. My sister Elizabeth likes these a lot too. So maybe we need two. In nesting sets, please!
