It happened to me again!
Someone refused to sell me some vintage Pyrex in a store. About a year ago our local thrift shop wouldn't sell me some Pyrex and other goodie they had out because they were waiting for a certain date. Why put it out if you won't sell it? Needless to say I got there on that date first thing and grabbed up my pretties.
Not how it happened again. I went to this little hardware store in Detroit, Michigan while on vacation. We (my cousin and I) wanted to purchase a butterprint 501 with lid she had. It was not marked with a price so we asked. The lady said it wasn't for sale. Um....... huh? She told us she only sold them as sets and so if it wasn't with a set she wouldn't sell it. Well she had a set of them but this was just another random 501 she had. So we put it back. Then she must have thought, "oh I'll throw out a price and they will for sure buy it since it will look like I'm doing them a favor." $6, no lid.
Needless to say we bought very little, nothing that wasn't priced. And got out of there.
This is all I got.
Thankfully the antique store we went to was much better and everything was priced and priced fabulous!
I managed to finish my Bake, Serve & Store set of Spring Blossom and my Primary set.
And no one refused to sell them to me.
