We’re back again for another thrifty post! I just love thrifting, I always have! Now it’s even more fun because I have a purpose.
During the week, I went to the Goodwill and the Salvation Army, but was left disappointed. The stuff is just so junky and prices are ridiculous! I saw a small Pyrex bowl that had been badly dishwashed for $4.99 -no way Jose!
So yesterday I went to the flea market and made out so well! I bought everything within the first few minutes, in aisle #1. For those of you that follow along with Pyrex, here’s the scoop:
- ~Golden Rosette Promotional#043 ($1)
- ~Yellow Mixing Bowl w/ Clear Bottom #323 ($1)
- ~Green #700 (Isn’t this size adorable?!) ($0.25)
- ~Spring Blossom #475 ($1)
- ~Colonial Mist #473 ($1)
- ~Moon Deco Promotional #475 ($3)
- ~Early American Divided Casserole ($1)
We spent $8.25 and made out very well! I LOVE when the men try to get rid of everything by saying it’s all $1! Many of the items had price tags for $2-$4 that their wives probably wrote, but the guys obviously try to clear everything out as fast as they can. All the pieces are in good condition, some of them are perfect! I’m not a huge fan of all these colors/designs (besides green), but these prices were unbeatable!
I was happy to find the same lady with the Moon Deco dish (the white one with black/red spots) that I passed up last month. Remember? I don’t love the dish so I’ll probably sell or trade it when I get around to it! It’s one of the more valuable pieces of Pyrex, because it was a promotion piece and it’s rather original looking. I could easily get $20 for it, but I’m hoping to get at least $50. Some have sold for $80+, it just all depends! Typically, I’m not purchasing Pyrex to re-sell, but this is just an exception!
I’m still on the search for more pink, turquiose, yellow, orange, daisies, refrigerator dishes and the Designs and Friendship patterns. Hopefully they’ll turn up soon! If you’re local and happen to come across any of these, please let me know!
I hope you’re all enjoying the thrifting posts. Good luck with your thrifting adventures! As always, feel free to share your thrifts or collecting hobbies!
