Here are my finds...

I went to local thrift shops this Friday & Saturday , I found a lot of unique things...

First is this Anchor Hocking Fire king Loaf dish, I saw it at a GW I stopped at, and I loved the pink and red combination. I have never seen this pattern before and picked it up for $2.00. The strange thing about this piece is that my husband noticed the spelling in the back was spelled upside down, so it is a misprint...wonder if that means this piece is more rare? or more valuable?

I found this set below at RWB thrift. I got this Butterfly Gold set for $7.95, there was a couple of pieces that I had to throw out because they were chipped and discolored, other than that the rest are perfect!

I found this set at Savers yesterday, I got 8 dinner plates for $4.99, 8 cereal bowls for $4.99 & Platter for $2.99. It was a great find!

Now here is all of my Butterfly Gold plates sitting on my bakers rack. Awesome isn't it?!

I picked up these 6 lunch plates at RWB, I got them for $3.95 for all!!
I could not see the makers mark because the masking tape was hiding it.
It says on the back Mexico 5. I researched it and it turns out it was a company in Mexico that was a company by the name Termocrisa. They made plates to resemble Anchor Hocking Fire King. But these plates were very well made and are still beautiful! 
This pattern I found out is from the 60's.

I found these plates at a local GW 2 weeks ago. 
These are by Anchor Hocking Fire King, I bought these for $1.95 a piece, there was only 2 left.

I found these beauties at Savers. I was so excited because this is my first pattern that I have of Gooseberry. I have never ran across it till now.
The 4 Qt. mixing bowl was $2.99, 2.5 Qt. was $1.99 & the 1 1/2 Pt. was 0.99 cents!
Is this color rare? Because I know the pink and white is more common and have never seen this color scheme in person.

I found this turquoise bowl at RWB. It is by Pyrex but I am not sure what year it came out, I know nothing about this! Anyone have any info???

This is a new pattern for me by Glasbake. I love the color of it! Not sure of the name of the pattern? and how old?

These three are awesome! I found the coffee holder at RWB, got it for $2.95! I love the color scheme! It is so cute.
Found this Pyrex "Square Flowers". Seems to be a casserole dish without the lid.  I got this for $2.95 Anybody know any more info on this?
And the bottom I believe is the "Verde" pattern. (Without the lid) it is an oval casserole bowl.
I bought this for $1.99 at Savers

I bought this 2 weeks ago at a GW for $1.99!! It is the "snowflake" pattern by Pyrex. It is called a Space Saver

I also got the one on the bottom (right) with the lid at RWB for $12.95.
I found yesterday at GW, the Snowflake casserole (not divided) for $3.00
and the Divided casserole without the lid for $1.99. This pattern I am loving so far, but I have not found the white on Turquoise
