Hi y'all! Sally here from Exploits of a Military Mama.
I've read quite a bit from other contributer's mentioning they're having a harder time finding Pyrex in their areas. I'm beginning to think that no one in my area has been hunting Pyrex except for me in the past few weeks because I have had tremendous luck. I'm calling in Beginner's Luck because I'm quite certain this good streak cannot continue for much longer.
A couple days ago, I decided to run into a local Goodwill just to see if they happened to have any Pyrex. My husband was on baby duty, and I had a couple hours to run around without hauling little ones in and out of carseats. I perused the rows for a couple minutes without anything catching my eye. For some reason, I decided to head back through the "Yellow" aisle in the Home Goods section. I stopped in my tracks when I noticed a big, yellow bowl with an orange binder on top. I quickly lifted off the binder, and BAM! Awesomeness.
I, literally, squealed in the aisle, scooped them up, and ran for the checkout.
They aren't in perfect condition, though they do look really beautiful for their age. The yellow, green, and blue bowls have survived with very minimum scratching and no fading. Unfortunately, my red 402 hasn't faired as well. I'm afraid he died a terrible, dishwasher death.
Why do people do these things?!
But no matter. Because the price tag? Made it totally worth it.
I'll be prowling the stores for a replacement red bowl, but until then, I'm pretty happy with my lucky find.
