The Estate Sale that Knocked it out of the Park

I have had really good luck finding Pyrex just about everywhere I have gone. That does not mean that I always find it in my price range. However, the junkin season has been good to me so far when it comes to my favorite thing to collect.

I promised on my last post that I would show you a special piece I kept for my collection. It is minty and I was thrilled to get it. This is a Space Saver Scroll design with lid and cradle from 1958.

I found this pink beauty at my local Catholic charity thrift store. It was not in the collectibles or vintage area! It was laying under a bunch of pots and pan lids. To say I was excited is an under statement. I love it and it looks wonderful in the center of my 1940s Hoosier.




  1. Oh my gosh, what a find! Good for you!

  2. Love these kinds of stories....I love when I find something really special tucked away too

  3. I am sure that I don't have to tell you just how well you scored! Have you ever looked online for this particular piece and seen how much it goes for even without the lid & cradle?



    1. I know! Btw I can't wait to read more about Farm Chicks. Sounds like it was a blast. Thanks

  4. Oh I had a suspicion when I saw your other picture... I noticed a hint of pink space saver and I figured you must have scored this! It's gorgeous! And what a great find in the midst of pots and pans :)

  5. Thanks everyone! I am so happy to have it in my collection:)

  6. Your lucky star had you covered when you found this dish. I do not recall ever seeing one just like it.

  7. Amazing. This is the one I'm dreaming of right now...

  8. What a super find. Doesn't it just make you think of all the meals it's had in it over the years. People had such class back then.
    Well done!
