How does one determine the value of Pyrex?
This post doesn't have anything to do with my mugs, which you've already seen. I just needed a picture to spice up this post and this was the best I could find.
With the exception of a Butterfly Gold butter dish that my sweet husband gave me as a gift, we've never purchased any Pyrex off of eBay or Etsy. Nothing against those sites...I just love the thrill of the thrift-store hunt (and the lack of shipping fees). However, I'm pretty certain that my local Goodwills are no longer putting any Pyrex on their shelves that isn't dishwashered to death and are reserving them for http://shopgoodwill.com/. That, or the local eBay and Etsy shop owners are getting the jump on me every time something shows up. Either way, there's nothing on those shelves anymore, overpriced or otherwise.
I went on Etsy today just to see what the Pyrex prices are like. In my opinion, the prices are all over the place. So I arrive at the question I already asked in my post title: how does one determine the value of Pyrex? None of the Etsy listings even come close to the deals I've gotten at thrift stores (even the super-overpriced stuff), and that's before shipping fees. But are their prices fair in the vintage/antique market?
Thanks in advance for your help!
