Flea Market Scores

Hi PC3, SusieQT here from Practice in Time!

I haven't been blogging much because of a camera issue, but I've still been shopping for Pyrex. Unfortunately, the thrift stores and yard sales aren't yielding much, so I stopped at my local flea market today.

And look what I found! These 401 bowls are the best patterned Pyrex I've found in a while. I saw more Pyrex there than I have at any thrift store or yard sale, which is great because the prices are low and there doesn't seem to be the competition for Pyrex like I see in the thrifts. (That's another whole issue which has been bugging me lately, but I don't want to get into that.)

The top is Horizon Blue and is my first piece of that pattern. I'm still kicking myself for passing up a complete set of casseroles in this pattern two years ago- it's so pretty. The bottom one is New Dots (of course you knew that) and is so minty! I am now halfway to finishing that set- you may remember my post about finding the yellow New Dots. And the best part of the flea market is I got both of them for $5! Which is a good thing, because finishing these sets is probably going to cost me- especially the New Dots 404.


  1. Love them both but especially the Horizon Blue. It is one of the patterns I collect. SCORE!


  2. I covet the dots bowls. I have yet to see them in person.

  3. I can't wait to complete New Dots. Horizon Blue is one I find a lot of, but its not my fav, but I find it in all the handy sizes (441, 401 and bake serve and store).

    Good finds! I hope you get your camera issue storted out and also I wonder if the same issue that's bugging you is bugging me?

    1. My camera is 9 years old, that's why it doesn't work anymore, LOL! It's been a great camera, but as we all know 9 yrs is way more than you can expect out of electronics anymore... :(

  4. Nice scores! Had to mention I love your fall display in the background of your kitchen just lovely!!!

  5. I have both of those and love them! The colors or just so pretty! I really like Horizon Blue too, it was the first thing I found. It's been over a couple years and I only just ran into a 1.5 qt oval lid recently.
