Now my thrifting revolves around Pyrex. There is so much to learn and so much Pyrex to find out there! The last few weeks have been extremely dry in the Pyrex area, so for my first post I'll be showing you one of my rare (beginner's luck!) pieces. I passed over the Moon Deco piece the first time I saw it because it didn't strike me whatsoever. Two weeks later, at the same flea market, after doing some more Pyrex research and kicking myself for leaving it behind, I found it again! I snagged this promotional piece for an awesome price. It's not in mint condition, but there are no chips and it has a lid!
The Moon Deco is a promotional piece released in 1971 and is worth quite a bit nowadays. The side of the white casserole has a red dot on each side. The lid is the most interesting part with a big black dot, then a white dot, and an even smaller red dot inside. It's a very retro looking piece! It's not a pattern I would usually collect, so I will probably be selling it to someone who can appreciate it more! If you're interested, you can email me at brandi (at) savvystudentshopper.com. I apologize for the poor pictures, I'll provide better ones when I find my battery charger.
So my advice for anyone new to collecting Pyrex is to do your research! There are many promotional and special pieces out there that you would hate to skip over. I was lucky enough to have a second chance at finding this piece. Now I'm looking to find some refrigerator dishes and Friendship!
