Hello, from a fellow Pyrex lover!

Hello all! 

My name is Whitney and I am a new contributor here!

A few months ago I came across this beautiful 'saxony' bowl at a yard sale ($6) and I immediately fell in love with Pyrex.  Since then, I have been busy collecting pieces here and there, and my collection is (of course) rapidly growing.  I love reading about all of your Pryex finds and thought it would be fun to share what I have found as well. 

I love that my first find was a promotional piece that is somewhat rare.  I wish they had made others in this pattern because I just LOVE it. 

I seem to have the best luck searching the many antique stores in our area, a few have better prices than the estate sales I have found.  And, ironically, I have yet to find another piece at a yard sale. 

I have a few more lucky finds I will be sharing soon!


  1. Great score!! I want one of these :) are u sticking to certain colors or patterns? Collecting it all?

  2. Oh I've always wanted that one! Lucky You!
    Erica :)

  3. @Christina - I am currently collecting it all ;-) I am just totally addicted! I do however have a 'buy price' ($8) that I stick to pretty strictly except if I find a few certain pieces that I know are very rare.

    1. You are much more strict than me! Thrift store prices are usually really reasonable, but the antique stores in central/upstate ny are high! Finding something for 18, 20, 25 dollars is exciting here...
