(Friendship, Friendship, just the prefect "Blend"ship!)I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this find! You always hear about those CRAZY "in the wild" Pyrex stores where someone picks up a treasure for pennies, well I can now add to the testimonials! Last Thursday when I got off work, I had a clairvoyant feeling that I should head down to my favorite thrift store (where I scored the pumpkin blow mold)I was feeling lucky and thought I might just end up with another blow mold!
So I pull into the parking lot and check the windows of the store, RATS... no new blow molds. But I had a feeling I should go inside anyways. I walked straight to the back of the store into "housewares" and there on a low shelf to my right I spot two orange 501 fridge dishes with the lids taped to them, I swoop on them and turn around and MUCH TO MY SURPRISE there is the 503 with its lid!!! I swoop on it to and then to my right on a lower shelf I find the red 502!!!! (I hunted and hunted but could not find the 502's lid.) I was TOTALLY broke but I hoped I had enough on my debit card, I made my way to the front of the store and get to the check out do the mental math in my head and hold my breath as the cashier rings up each piece and my total comes to-
SIX DOLLARS AND TWENTY-NINE CENTS!
I was beside myself with ecstasy! The cashier swipes my debit card and I had $6.94 in my checking account (payday would be the next day!) This is hands down one of the COOLEST Pyrex finds in my collecting history. (This will be a Christmas present for someone special I know.) I'm just in SHOCK I was prepared to pay $75-$125 for this set and then WHAT DO YA KNOW?! haha
So that's my story, Pyrex Magic IS out there!
