Dream Come True & Pyrex, Too!

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...

 So I did something crazy and left them behind! Did I make the right choice? Ah, who knows. But next to the orange set, is a four bowl set of Amish mixing bowls in my color. I have a set already, but without the large 4qt bowl. So, I bit the bullet and bought the whole set even though I didn't need all of it. She wanted $80, but my father got her down to $60. Oh yeah, she also had a butterdish :) SOLD to me! My father was veryyy pleased about this.

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!
Happy Pyrexing!

  1. I love seeing all of that Pyrex, but I just can't bring myself to spend that much. I'm glad you were able to get some nice ones and you must have done something really good to get that mixer. ;)

  2. Wow!!!!! That is amazing! =] Your so lucky =}


  3. Holy Pyrex....I would have fainted to see all the pyrex in one place! Love your mixer.

  4. Did your heart just start racing when you saw that booth? Mine did just from the pics!

    1. Yes!! I nearly started running when I saw the booth from a distance!! Sooo much stuff- but no pink stuff :/ which is what my mom collects

  5. Ahhh. Those pics made my heart skip a beat. I looooove it. Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to sell all Pyrex, corning and corelle? It would give me an excuse to buy all the stuff I see at thrift stores that I always have to pass on :-P
