Pyrex in Saint Louis

Anyone else out there in Pyrex land from St. Louis? Took a trip last weekend (on date night, of course) to The Future Antiques and was speechless. They have so many beautiful Pyrex pieces, as their website photos show. I found a compass divided dish and finally got a large yellow refrigerator dish with lid. This will complete my primary refrigerator set, as soon as I see my Aunt to grab the two small red ones she has for me!

I haven't had one Goodwill find in my area (west of STL), but mostly thrift stores and antique stores. Anyone else in my area have that experience? 

See all my Pyrex, crafting, cooking, and thrifting adventures at The Halcyon Life!


  1. Cute finds! Yes, most of my pieces lately have come from Antique stores that are having a sale. I did find a turquoise snowflake divided for $4.99 at the G.W latst week, but it came with a "Blue Horizons" lid! haha I still bought it. Pyrex getting harder to find in the wild!

  2. I want to go to there! Are the prices at The Future Antiques comparable to garage/estate sales?

    I have a Goodwill in my area, but I haven't found any vintage pyrex. I think it's mainly youngish people who donate to my local store. I did see a huge stack of saucer type plates of the Corelle spring blossom pattern though.

  3. I think The Future's Antique prices were higher than garage or estate sales. I think I paid $8 for the compass piece as it was on their clearance shelf (they did have some nice deals there, but not a ton of Pyrex). I paid $22 (blushes) for the refrigerator dish, but I really wanted to complete my set. They had some turquoise oval snowflake casseroles with lids for $25 each. I think their primary refrigerator sets were $60-70. They also had a lovely set of Friendship cinderella casseroles for $59. It's a really neat store and a great place to maybe find a HTF piece. Worth a trip to look, for sure! I wish we lived closer so I could periodically look in their clearance section!

  4. I work right down the street from TFA, but surprisingly have never gone in. I know I'm gonna walk in and immediately spend all of my rent money, so it's best to avoid the temptation. I have had decent luck at antique malls as far as price, but I won't say great. My thrifted pieces are few and far between. When I do find them, though, they're generally a steal.
