It's Not Pyrex But it's Atomic!

Seems that the Pyrex gods have turned me over to the Federal gods this week!  I didn't have any opal Federal glass until a few days ago when I posted my Atomic Dots find.  Today, when I was in the store and there wasn't a lick of Pyrex or anything else interesting in the way of vintage opal glass, I wandered through a couple other kitchenware aisles.  Well, well, somebody moved these babies over to the silverware and pans section!


And yes, I giggled when I picked them up and went to hunt down hubby.  He cracked me up--he's like "where did you find those?????" He looked absolutely puzzled.  I told him where I found them--I think he was bummed he wasn't the one to find them so he could surprise me.  And price, $3.50 and $4.50--very doable!

I'm going to hop over to  Pyrex Collective III and post my Pyrex finds from last week!

    1. Tee-hee! Pam, sometimes, when I have these kinds of finds--I catch myself with a big grin on my face. Just can't help it!

  3. I said it before - love Federal!

    I have a set of of small bowls, they have gold trim on them. I use them every day. I put one in the microwave on time... whoops! & there is one of this pattern that has been sitting at a market. I considered buying it, especially when it was on sale, but I have other vintage priorities. Would pick this one up in a thrift store, though!

    1. Sir Thrifty, I hear you, the price has got to be palatable. I saw this same bowl for $25 and the antique store, I would have NEVER paid that much for it! I too would put that money towards something else on my vintage list!

  4. I have a piece of that too! I am a Pyrex collector but will sometimes cheat with other brands! Love it.

    1. It's hard to pass up any nice glass pattern, isn't it?
