Dear Western Washington Pyrex Dudes and Dudettes,
Don't miss out on this: Craigslist ad for the most amazing Pyrex sale ever (seriously).
I first found out about this seller from an ad she posted on Craigslist for a beautiful set of Friendship Cinderella bowls, which I bought as a wedding gift for a cousin. We exchanged a bunch of emails but it was my mother-in-law who conducted the sale in person since they both live on Vashon Island. My family and I made a recent trip to Vashon last weekend for the Strawberry Festival, so I got to go to this seller's house and pick out some gorgeous pieces (for myself this time). However, I didn't even make a dent in her vast supply of promotionals and wide array of patterns. Check out the ad--an entire corner of her sun-room, where everything is displayed, is JUST TURQUOISE. And I didn't even buy any (I'm sort of wondering why now).
The seller is amazingly friendly (and she's one of us, so you know she knows her stuff). We had a great time gossiping about our various Pyrex experiences while I tried (and tried and tried) to choose which pieces to purchase. I thought her prices were great--she even had a "fire sale" corner full of stuff that was only a dollar because of chips, scratches or dishwasheredness. I found several only slightly nicked or faded bowls that I use for cereal and salads.
Okay, my husband just asked me when the Magna Carta will be finished, so I'll conclude by saying Vashon is a great place to visit. Cute little town, beautiful ferryboat ride, all that. If you're looking for a fun summer day trip (and an excuse to buy some awesome Pyrex), look no further.
