Pulling in the Reins - Pyrex Finds

I've been collecting Pyrex for years and it's been fun.  The hunt is still exciting, but there is a limit to how much I can bring home and retain in my collection.  I've traded a lot and sold a little,  all of which is time consuming.  It's feeling like too much stuff, so I've been purging and putting more for sale and have donated to my favorite animal rescue charity.  But naturally, there will still be a handful of things I can't resist when the price is right or it is something one of my locals wants.

I've picked up 3 primary 402s over the years.  I've used one in place of a Friendship 402 for the longest time.  I finally found a Friendship 402.

Could not resist this beautiful red 026 Casserole.  The Golden Pine space saver I have, but picked it up for a local collector.

I never have luck finding pink Pyrex that's in good condition.  Hubby scooped this pink 501 up out of the bottom of a bucket one day.

Another rare thrift store find for me.  Over the years the only space savers I find are those with gold decoration--Golden Pine, Green Wheat and Golden Acorn. This is my second snowflake in the past couple months. I was expecting it to be priced high, but with my coupon, I got it for $3.19.

Thrift Store Find - Lefton Bluebirds

So fortunate to stumble upon this pair of Lefton Bluebirds egg cups.  Gotta love the 99 cent price tag plus 10% discount!

Yay For Trading - Cathrineholm Yellow Stripe Bowl

A few days ago a trader asked if I would trade one of the Pyrex items on my trade list for a yellow striped Cathrineholm bowl and I said "absolutely!!!"  Very surprised and happy to add this beauty to my collection.

Thrift Store Find - Franciscan Starburst!

Over the moon doesn't describe it.  Hubby spotted this pile of Franciscan Starburst at the thrift store in the cart waiting to be unloaded.  We have been hunting nonstop for years hoping to score some pieces cheap and it finally happened!

A New Addition to my Collection - Cathrineholm Yellow Lotus

I have to admit that I'm amazed when I can still manage a trade for something I really want.  Recently I was offered this 9.5" yellow Cathrineholm bowl.  She's a wonderful addition to the gang!
