I'm thinking about pulling all my good Pyrex out of the antique mall booth since I'm getting sick and tired of hearing the owner tell me people think my prices are too high. Apparently everyone's mother or grandmother in this podunk town had a kitchen full of Pyrex that they used on a daily basis and if she says to me one more time: "And they just can't believe that old Pyrex is selling for those prices!" I'm sorry, but I have a rare 1961 promotional Golden Grape with delphite interior chip & dip WITH the holder and WITH the box priced at $52. Is that too high? I realize I'm asking a bunch of people who (like me) shop at thrift stores this question, but after researching it I think it's fair. I wound up selling a Fire-King jadeite batter bowl for $15! Pyrex fridge dishes in perfect condition WITH the lids (also in perfect condition) for $6!
So like I said, I'm thinking about yanking everything marked "Pyrex" and handing it over to my niece Corinne. She's getting married next month and I'm pretty sure she'd wet her pants if she suddenly had a kitchen full of vintage Pyrex. NOTE: this is what I'm THINKING, not necessarily what I'm DOING (so if Corinne is reading this, have patience my child).
Now that I've had my Pyrex hissy fit, I wanted to show a coffee pot that I picked up along the way about a year ago. I just found out today that there's also a matching sugar & creamer. In my excitement I "lost" the website of the young lady who had just found the sugar & creamer but she did a post on the Pyrex Collective website today (?) so I'm sure I'll find her again.
I'm going to do Part 2 of this post tomorrow morning. The internet on a Saturday afternoon is just waaaay too crowded and waaaaay too slow. Anyway, I'm dragging hubby to a country auction tonight with the enticement of "You know, honey, there MIGHT be some tools . . ."
