So, this weekend there were several estate sales in my area. In the pics posted online I saw Pyrex at a few of them, so I was stoked! I got up at 8 on Saturday morning (which is super early for me since I work the late shift during the week) and headed out! At the first one I found a set of Butterfly Gold (401-403) in great shape. But they were asking $20 and it's not my favorite pattern, so I passed. At the next one, they had lots of other cools stuff, but still no Pyrex. =(
At the last sale, there were several 024 dishes (red solid, flamingo, lime) but all were dishwasher damaged, so, I left them all behind. I did find a really awesome navy hat and necklace, but, alas, I still left with NO PYREX!!
On my way home, I stopped at a yard sale and found a pink milk glass dish (I have wanted pink milk glass FOREVER!!) and two really cute, fire king, violet mugs, but, again, no Pyrex.
So I decided this was just not weekend. But little did I know, it wasn't over yet!!
On Sunday my aunt sent me an email about another estate sale, so I decided to go after church. I got there right before closing, and in addition to the normal 1/2 off they usually do on Sundays, they were taking an additional half off of that. Sweet!! I went to the kitchen and at first scan, no Pyrex. Before I could make a closer inspection I was distracted by a beautiful orange and red enameled stock pot.
I was elated because it was $2.50 after the mark down and i LOVED it!! As the lady was writing up my ticket, I glanced over at the opposite side of the kitchen and something red behind several baking dishes caught my eye. That looks like the red of the Celtic dish, I thought. But no, I reasoned, it can't be, or it wouldn't still be here. Yet, as I approached it, I saw that, lo and behold, it was the Celtic dish!!! And it was marked $4 (Which I would have gladly paid). But, with the 75% off, I got it for $1!!!!!!!!
I could not believe it!!!!! I have wanted this dish for so long! And I finally found it for $1!!!! I actually almost just bought it on eBay for $15, but I missed the end of the bid. I guess I was meant to miss it!! I also found the daisy/sunflower casserole and it was also $1! Aaaa!!! I think this is my best find EVER!!!
