I went out yard sale-ing and thrifting for Pyrex this morning. Yard sales have been a total bust for Pyrex lately, but I did manage to get my hands on 3 of the tiny 5 oz custard cups for $1 (which was great because I bought 1 the other day, so now i have a set). I also picked up a spring blossom loaf dish (in the pic below) and the big yellow primary bowl for a reasonable price at a consignment shop. Buuuuut, the find I was most excited about wasn't Pyrex, but its less loved cousin Corelle! I've been picking up the Pyrex-matching dishes as I come across them, and today I hit the jackpot! A 20 piece set of spring blossom dishes NEW IN BOX! I also somehow managed not to replicate any of the dishes I already had, except that I already had 2 saucers. Here is my whole spring blossom family:
In the box was: 4 dinner plates (biggest plates), 4 lunch plates (2nd biggest plates), 4 large bowls, 4 tea cups, and 4 saucers. Also, a lovely colorful pamphlet of Pyrex and Corelle compatibles!
Also, miniature rant here: Savers is getting ridiculous with Pyrex pricing. It was fine until recently. Yesterday I went and they wanted $9 for a scratched small autumn harvest 401 bowl! Who is pricing this stuff!? Fingers crossed for more normal Pyrex pricing!
