Finally, my first Snowflake Garland

Hi PC3, SusieQT here from Practice in Time!

Pyrex thrifting has been picking up a bit of late, so that's the good news. I've been finding about 1-2 pieces a week (more good news) but am running out of room (that's the bad news!) So I have taken the plunge and started selling some of my collection in my booth at an antique mall. Please don't hate me, I am trying to be a good Pyrex mommy, but some of my children need better homes!

I've decided to keep my Primary sets and anything pink, turquoise and black, while the rest is going to the booth. OK, maybe not all, I'm still keeping my New Dots and my delphite for a while....

So this latest purchase is something of a dilemma:

This is my first Snowflake Garland and I love it! It is in mint condition, appears to have never been used. It also happens to be a divided dish, which is always problematic for me. I rarely use them, and they just don't stack well and don't display well, since the pattern is on the lid. *sigh*

At the moment I have five divided dishes and only two are out- my Pink Daisy and my Compass. The others usually get stored haphazardly on end in the cupboard. (Bad Pyrex mommy!) So I don't know yet if I can keep this one. Pyrex has also been selling really well for me in my booth, and I know this one would go quickly. What would you do?

Ah, the sacrifices we make for our children...

Oh, and the tea towel pictured? It was bundled up in a pack of 99 cent rags in the same thrift store. When I took it up to the register even the volunteer working there mentioned that it shouldn't have been in there! Whoops! ;)


  1. I'm the worst one to give advice- I tend to keep everything! But, the divided dishes are awkward to store. If they sell well in your booth, perhaps, you should let it go...? But, first- admire it for a bit!

  2. Don't feel bad about purging your Pyrex. I have had to do it several times, most recently last week! I have strictly decided that I will only collect turquoise, pink, Primary, and Friendship. Plus, I have a full set of New Dots & Yellow Butterprint and both of those are pretty rare so they get to stay too!

    I have a real love/hate relationship with divided dishes. I love them when I have a use for them but hate storing them!

    Have a great day,


  3. What do you guys cook in the divideds? Maybe my portions are large, but it seems too small when I cook for me and my fiance! But, the fancy lids are fabulous!!

  4. so pretty! i wish i could find some like that.
