Of course I had my eye out for the turquoise plates, and space savers. (Ever since I had a lucky streak finding three space savers in a row at thrift stores, I keep dreaming. You can see those here and here.)
No plates or space savers, but I did spy this 474 on a top shelf. I actually thought it was Glasbake at a first glance, but it's definitely Pyrex. I really do have plenty of Pyrex at the moment (when you move, you realize just how heavy it all is...) but this one was just so summery and cute -- I'd never seen the pattern before. I also didn't have anything in that size, and for $3.50, I figured it was a bargain.
I later looked it up online -- I found the 1961 Bride's Promotional! I didn't get the lid or cradle, but still, I love it.
I think the Bride's Promotional would be a super fun gift for a bride-to-be -- especially if it was packed full of other little goodies. (Well, let's face facts, any vintage Pyrex would be fun to receive as a wedding gift!) Have any of you gifted or received Pyrex as wedding gifts?
Speaking of weddings and gifts, do any of you know if Pyrex ever made snack sets? I haven't found any information on them, but maybe I'm missing something. I'm discovering how fun and versatile vintage snack sets are (and apparently they are still popular for wedding and baby showers in the South...?) so I picked up a bunch on the same day that I scored something old and something blue. You can see those here on my blog.
Hope everyone is having great end-of-summer-sale-success!
