Flea Market Fun With My Friends

Our annual trip to the Broom Corn Festival is about a month off, bug oh we had the but to do some Pyrex hunting. So off to the 3rd weekend Flea Market!

Here is my haul
I spent just under $40

We hit the Pyrex jackpot

We bought as a group
flamingo pink casserole
spring daisy 4 qt bowl
2 sandalwood striped bowl
3 butterprint casserole with lids
sunflower casserole with lid
Jan completed her sunflower Cinderella set with a bowl
Patty started her sunflower set with 2 bowls
lime green pie plate
lime green casserole with lid
lime green square casserole
We did a lot of bundling, Frank Fritz would be so proud!
the total cost was just under $100
most was bought at one spot
so happy with their purchases!

Of course I was looking for more than just Pyrex

the first purchase of the day was a ice scoop that just happens to be my 
Silver pattern! Silver Artistry but Oneida.

my pink flamingo casserole
talked her down to $5

sandalwood striped
I have never seen a striped one in person around here

spring daisy 3 quart in pristine shape
I got the set of 3 when I got married, I guess the sets came in 3 or 4 
so I went ahead and made it a set of 4 now

Pam from Virginia Retro, did you see this?
Pretty pink tablecloth with flowers.
How could I pass it up?
yes! $2.50
looks like it has not been used in years, just some stains on the folds
from being stored.
I almost left this one behind
But would make a great fall table?
and the price
could not believe the prices!
again needs a good wash and ironing.

on the way out of town there is a Salvation Army store
I know these are a dime a dozen but I did not have these patterns and love how they look grouped.
Patty got a funky record for her Son for 49 cents and Jan got a Soprano's trivia game never unwrapped for $1.50
How much were my vases?
yep 63 cents! Wouldn't you of bought them too!
I am going back there next trip, they had some great little finds, and cheap unlike our local GW

so there is the growing pink Pyrex collection
It goes great with my rose mist and seafoam green everyday fiesta ware plates.
just need the pie plate and square casserole 

I hope you enjoyed going with us to the flea market.
So are you looking forward to seeing what we find on our road trip in September?
Me too!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Just fabulous Ann! Wow, you guys did great with all that Pyrex, and the bundling helping you out. You know my fav is the 2 tablecloths. I love the Simtex flowered one and have the one with the leaves but with different colors. Great for a fall table. The Simtex sure looks beautiful with the colorful Pyrex. You scored with those prices, holy moly! Take me with you next time, okay? :) Pam

OOPS! Thanks for the shout out. Sweet! :)

Roxanne said...

Pink Pyrex is always a good thing! And that's so great you and your friends found such great scores. Glad you had fun :-)

Sue McPeak said...

How are you feeling? After all that Pyrex shopping I am concerned you may have an overdose of Pyrexia! What great finds, and the table cloths are super. I'm going through mine to hard to do, but gotta start or they will all end up in a garage sale or Craigs List. That's my DIL's way of getting rid of stuff.

Enjoyed the post about your Hoosier, bowls and parents wedding pictures. All such treasures.

That silver scoop is so neat. Love the floral tablecloth, too!

Protector of Vintage said...

Great flea market finds! I especially love the vintage tablecloths!!

Donna Wilkes said...

I am lusting for those beautiful tablecloths. They would be so pretty stacked in a glass front cupboard.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Great prices and great finds. Love the tablecloths and, of course, the Pyrex!!!

Hi Ann,
Thanks so much for your comment - I'm so sorry I didn't know you're in St Louis, I thought you were in Illinois for some reason?? The events in Ferguson are so heartbreaking. Thinking of you xo

Susan Clayton said...

Loving all your great finds!

GardenOfDaisies said...

Oh, I love the silver artistry scoop! That was my silver pattern before I gave up and just decided to go with stainless. I think I still have the steak knives in that pattern around here somewhere.

Jann Olson said...

Ann, you gals really did find some great pieces! I pulled my Fall colored Pyrex out today. Always love them this time of year. I have one round casserole of the Spring green left from my wedding. Love, love that floral tablecloth! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Ann, I am loving all the pretty pyrex. But those table cloths, great deals and pretty too. Some even go very well with the pyrex. Hope you are well and enjoy this tail end of summer. Blessings, xoxo,Susie
