My parents support my pyrex collecting and planned a trip to the Windmill Flea Market near Penn Yan, NY. It was wonderful! It's like going to the state fair, but Amish style! The food, the crafts, the art, the furniture :) Before we left, my father said "I think we will find a butter dish today. I have a good feeling!" Haha, he loves it!
Wait for it.....there was a woman there who sold nothing but Pyrex, Corelle & Corningware... we were meant to be! I was in my glory (but so were other people!) so I did a breeze through first to nab anything awesome off the bat, then really looked at everything after.
The thing was, everything was in sets. No random or odd pieces. Which also meant, set-style prices... I have been day dreaming about the orange butterprint. There they were! All four cinderellas for $65, but I'm supposed to be only collecting turquoise...
Then, at a hardware store on the way home, my parents bought me a kitchenaid mixer in "Ice Blue". What did I do to deserve such AWESOME treatment?! I don't know, but I went with it! I can't wait to take it out of the box and set it up with my dishes. Heavenly! I'll post again when I am up and running :)
I also left behind some turquoise snowflake utility dishes because they were in poorer condition. Sad. It would have added to my hopeful holiday collection. Some day it will all come together!
