Good last few days thrifting for me. I asked the hubby if we could stop at a GW on the way home from a Fro-Yo outing and he dropped me off at the door so I didn't have to race to the housewares section dragging my 4 & 5 yr olds with me. :) (anyone know what i mean?)
Found this Town & Country 1 1/2 QT casserole for $2.99
I don't have any of this pattern, but I have never really loved it...and I have too many 1 1/2 casseroles, so this one is not staying with me.
I actually have a TON of this pattern, but all my pieces are casseroles, and they're brown w/gold and this one is the little bitty mixing bowl. It had no price, so when I took it to the register the lady entered....INHALE
This is my first Sandalwood piece. I bought it yesterday. Because in my neck of the woods, GW's don't do color coded discount sales, they do every Monday 25% off.
It was all alone with no lid. and...very very faded. (but not the leaves, they are thick and shiny) abused by the dishwasher. I picked it up...I set it down. I picked it up...walked away...looked at stinky shoes, stinky shirts, and old pillow cases. I peeked over to where I set it down. And my 4 yr old said, "Momma, why is your Pyrex over there? You need it for your Colllllleckshion"(love the way 4 year olds know just what to say) My 5 yr old said, "Mom, it's beautiful."
How could I leave it at Goodwill? It will make a good cereal bowl or something.
Oh, and the total for this beauty? $1.49
So the GRAND total of my thrifted Pyrex Extravaganza... $5.47
What would you have done? Would you have left the Sandalwood...or brought it home?
