My husband and I went out for lunch. After hitting up our favorite Mexican restaurant (and if you are ever in Tucson, you must go!) we were stuffed…but on the way home I was not too stuffed to ask my husband to pull in at a thrift. Now, I rarely find something at this place but I had a feeling so I ran in while he waited in the car.
The aisles are super long and narrow and the shelves are all shoulder length and below. I made my first pass but couldn't see much because a woman was blocking the aisle and all the bakeware with her cart while she made a thorough examination of the shelves. I scooted around her and by the time I turned around at the end of the aisle and examined what I could on my way back she had moved a couple feet. That's when I saw these, all taped together and hidden somewhat in a much bigger dish. She had been blocking them with her cart on my first pass and had barely moved past them on my second while she examined the next set of shelves. I saw the turquoise peeking out and made my move.
Yes, that is an open baker! Now, it was taped to the bottom with under the 045 with a lid under it, unlike in the picture you see here; I had cut the tape as soon as I got in the car. I thought maybe it was a divided dish. I don't want the divided and I already had the 043 and 045 but after examining the taped mass I had in my hands thought there was no way the 045 could sit in a a divided. Up to the cashier I went. My excitement must have been obvious because he said I looked happy.
And here it is, my open baker! It's so, so pretty and I know I will get a lot of use out of this dish!
Happy hunting to all!
