I don't know how long ago it was when I saw the amazing sign that the http://pyrexthriftersisters.blogspot.com/ got. But since that time I have been actively looking for Pyrex advertising and store display pieces. They are really rare! I dream of walking into an estate sale, swap meet, or even an antique mall and finding one. A sign, a display, anything that was used to showcase Pyrex back in the day. That has not happened yet.
However, the online marketplaces are a place I can and have been searching for such items. Although, the rare vintage display pieces do appear, it is not often. In fact, I have only come across 4 or 5 for sale in the last year. Everything from a lighted sign to a paper display.
I finally found one that I would like to share. This was a steal compared to what it could have gone for. It was displayed flat without the Pyrex added. I am sure this would have gone for more $ if displayed better. I even passed it over several times until I took a closer look as to what it was. I knew I had the Pyrex made for the display already in my collection so I bought it! (Sorry about the lighting in the picture, it's what they call June gloom in my area of the country) I am so excited to own this! I imagine that this display would have stopped a lot of shoppers in their tracks back in its day.
That is really neat!!!!!ReplyDelete
This is so cool. Thanks for showing it. I have the big red bowl....now I need to look out for the small bowls.ReplyDelete
That's amazing! Pyrex advertising is extremely hard to come by in person. When I found the lighted sign, I researched forever trying to find another like it online. No suck luck. After reading your post, I feel like I need another piece of Pyrex advertising!! I'm on the hunt now:-)ReplyDelete
What a fun "and useful" thing to collect! I am always seeing old Pyrex at the Goodwill and am tempted to buy, the colors and patterns are just so fun! Hope you have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
