What a week I had last week! It started off with a two day Pyrex hunting trip with my daughter, Kylee, and daughter-in-law, Erin. And then on Wednesday, our beloved Pecos was peacefully laid to rest. Please read about him on my blog The Vintage Shelf. What a wonderful dog that will be greatly missed. So many emotions played out during the week.
So now I have finally had the chance to get some pictures taken and write about our finds. We headed out early Monday morning for Amarillo, Texas, with great expectations. After hitting every possible antique store or mall, along with all of the thrift stores we came away with some great Pyrex and replacement lids. Erin started her primary mixing bowl collection with the yellow bowl and is going to add to it piece by piece. The whole sets that we saw averaged from $120.00 to $180.00. I think those may be sitting on the shelf collecting dust for a while! She also came home with three 503 refrigerator dishes to start working on those sets. She found Pink Gooseberry, Butterprint, and Friendship all in mint condition, so she is quite excited to get started on that.
Kylee had been looking for the blue loaf pan for quite some time to complete the set and she quietly squealed when she laid eyes on it! The Golden Pine Promotional was another exciting find that is in great condition. And who can pass up the pie plates!
