The elusive green dot bowl. You know the one...impossible to find in the wild, going for prices upwards of $60 and $70 on ebay....we won't even talk about etsy prices....
I was at a great little place called The Vintage Source that only runs one time per month in Southern Maryland. This weekend was their spring flea market weekend, so my 6 year old daughter and I went to see what there was to see. Lots of neat stuff, but nothing that had to come home with me...until I turned a corner in the store and saw this bowl on a table. I practically squealed. I tentatively flipped over the tag to see the price, thinking that surely it would be high.
$21. And in pretty great condition. A few chipped dots here and there, but overall looking shiny and clean.
I know for those of you that have good luck finding Pyrex when you are out thrifting, this price is probably pretty high, but I have to say that around these parts, most of the Pyrex to be found is at flea markets or antique stores. For this bowl, I was incredibly happy to pay this price.
It now lives on my rack in my kitchen with fellow family members, orange dot and blue dot bowl.
If only our missing family member, the yellow dot bowl, would come join us, life would be fine.
For now, I'm enjoying finding the big ol' green dot bowl!
