Pyrex from the Auction

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I went to 1515 to meet a friend for a weekly auction.

I think I showed you the car
The car was packed and I spent only $32

Several times they were selling boxes for a dollar, then it got to be a entire table for $1
I could not believe it.

Here is what I got on one table or box

A assortment of Pyrex bowls, all in great condition. So I probably paid pennies for each one of them!
One has a wheat design and the green flowered one matches my set I got when I was married.
Made scrambled eggs in the blue one this weekend, so I think they will get use at 1515 for all our family
 get togethers!

Happy VTT


Happy Thrifty Groove Friday

You were lucky finding those Pyrex bowls and at that price. You can never get too many of them. Most useful.

Lovely, pretty, useful bowls at a knock-out price!
I used to buy at auctions when I was selling at antique/collectors fairs here in the UK, but I've had to kick the habit due to lack of space!

I can't believe you got all that in the Beemer! I have the pattern in front of the Pyrex--hehe 1980's wild :)

Rebecca said...

Another great find and useful too! I won't be able to open at all next weekend. I work the whole time-sorry. I'm also opening Sunday and Tuesday-weather permitting. I'll try and keep you posted-let me know when you'll be in town again after the reunion. I sure hate missing it all, but there's no way to switch.

Oh, how fun!! You got some great things and the prices are fabulous. Those Pyrex bowls bring back a lot of good memories.

Donna said...

Wow, lucky you! I've not found any good deals like that out here yet! But then, I've not gone to any auctions, either. Sounds like I need to start! You got a real steal with those great pyrex bowls, I think they are going to be the next hot collectible!!

Rebecca said...

Hey Girl-hope you get your car fixed without too much cost-who wants to spend money on things like that! Just a couple of FYI's-I'm working on setting up a facebook account for Ella Maes-I'll let you know when I've got it ready. Not sure if I'm off on that Tuesday you leave-I'll let you know. If you see something you want-let me know and I'll send it with Eric to the reunion-things are selling like hotcakes and I hate it when I want something and it's not there later. Hope you're summer's going good-would love to get together one of these days!

Susan said...

You found you some pyrex love! LOL

Martha said...

Oh that Pyrex reminds me of my grandma.

dogsmom said...

My experience at auctions is never that good.

This weekend I passed up the gravy boat and saucer that match the green flowers. Of course you know if I went back they would not be there.

What a deal on those pyrex bowls! I love seeing pictures of cars loaded after finding a great sale! Makes me smile.
I appreciate your visit and hope you will return often.

Pyrex for pennies, what a buy. I went to an estate sale this week but their pyrex was out of site!

Babs said...

Ann, It looks like you hit the Pyrex jackpot. Lucky you. Now so many are using it to reheat things in the microwave instead of plastic. I used to have refrigerator dishes with lids. They were great.Enjoy all your new treasures.
Hugs,
Babs

Oh. What a find and steal! Even our Goodwill thinks anything marked Pyrex must have gold in the glass...the prices are just out of control. Happy VTT
