Saturday Hunting

It is the 3rd weekend of the month and that means the Flea Market is open this weekend in Belleville at the Belle Clair Fairgrounds.
That also means Pyrex hunting!
My friend and I who go on the Saturdays were joined by Patty who's husband was Turkey hunting.
Isn't Pyrex hunting more fun!?
I picked up Patty after spending over an hour at the Apple store, my new i phone worked for about 45min and ATT sent me there....aaarrgggghhhhh!
Rhonda met us there after she got off work.
So come along
Look at all the Pyrex!
We found something on the table that I bought.....but you will have to see my buy at a later time!

These were too cool. Vintage switch plates in green, blue, yellow and pink.
But none of them would work in my pink bedroom at 1515...darn!

Oh, if I had $35 I would of picked this up!
recognize these? My Grandma's dishes and they wanted $200 for the set, which I have!
Brought a smile to my face.
I showed you her pattern in Feb 2011

Well....on to the hunt!
We were looking for any Snowflake pattern, Pink gooseberry or daisy, green dot bowl, Friendship and Butterprint.

First up
a divided snowflake with no lid, but hey! $3

Tons of  Butterfly Gold, Early American, Spring Blossom (my original pattern) and loose pieces of primary bowls.

Patty also found Butterprint, a small refrigerator dish for $6, small casserole for $6 and a divided white with blue snowflake dish for $6. So she ended up with 4 pieces in excellent shape for $21 not bad!
I had a budget of $25 and stuck to it because Rhonda haggled for me! I got a 5 piece set of Pyrex, you will have to come revisit me to see!

My Mr. was busy working, but I took him home a home made pretzel with a thin salami in it. He thought, "that looks awful" I had to beg him to eat it! He was glad he did, he loved it and wants me to bring more home again next time.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Begging your man to eat, doesn't that sounds like a kid. So funny, he loved it and wants more. You were so good to stick to your budget. Smiles, Susie(She Junks)

I needed to go with you. I need the large yellow bowl for the primary set. I bet there was one there! You did great!!!

Oh my gosh Ann, I had no idea that there were so many different colors of Pyrex. I have one snowflake one and a couple green and white that didn't have lids. My sister suggested that I trace the lid shape on a piece of paper. I'll take it with me and hopefully will find one that will fit. She lucked out that way. Hop over to Note Songs and see the steal she got on some pink Pyrex. They are alot like a bowl set I have. I did not get a steal like her. I'm rambling, but just gotta say that thermos would have come home with me if I'd been by your side. So sad, too bad. lol! I thought the pretzel sounded yummy. Glad hubs gave it a try.

HI Ann! Oh, what fun. I wish I could go Pyrex hunting! Friday I found three little Pyrex Gooseberry pink bowls with two lids. You can see them in my post before my kitchen. I think I may have to start hunting Pyrex now! :)
Be a sweetie,
