Just Gotta Love a Auction! and Pyrex!

Near 1515 there is a Auction house that has a every Tuesday night auction and a once a month Antique auction.
It is the same place I got my Fostoria cake plate recently.
They have online bidding and they post pictures on FB and their website.
The pictures are not too clear and 40 items could be in one picture but I spotted this at the end of the table in one picture!
It was a gamble but boy did it pay off.
$4
For Bluebirds for Patty in perfect condition

Pink Daisy 1 1/2 quart for me.
and
2 pieces of Gooseberry Pink for $4
I was happy when the girl from the auction house called and said I won.
Over the years I have been lucky in person...

the daisy set for another friend for $2.50

or my first Friendship pieces


I am afraid someone is going to catch on and I won't be so lucky.

My Pyrex buddies from work and myself all had the flu last week.
So Monday 2 of us are off and after a weekend of rest we are headed to 1515 for the day.
Seems the antique mall at home has a new vendor I spotted last weekend 
as I was starting succumb to the flu.
I snatched this up
Compass divided dish to go with my barbwire and

black snowflake
and do you see my Christmas tree mugs I have neglected to show you?
Bought them in Dec. I am still behind since my computer was dead for a month and now I left my camera at my in laws so i phone pics only.

So come shopping with me at the Copper Eagle

Jan is in the Grand Cayman Islands but I promised to pick up the pink lasagna.

anyone need a primary set? I am grabbing those 2 small red hostess bowls.

and it may not be Pyrex but I love the glassbake brown tulip

Patty wants to bring home the golden boomerang coffee carafe and 
the Turquoise Princess  Casserole
there is even more, a frosted garland Christmas casserole, daisy, barbed wire, another compass, friendship and butterprint.

Can't wait to go back Monday.
So it is a road trip, Pyrex and lunch with the twins.

Have a great day!

Amazing Ann, you won that Pyrex for a song! I would think the dealers would even be bidding on that. I don't really buy Pyrex anymore as I have enough, lol, and like you use it all. Love how easy the casserole bakers are to clean.

Have a fun day with the "girls". Glad you are feeling better. :)

I loved your comment on my last post at Lakehouse, Ann! Thank you for stopping in.
How neat that you have a group of gals to share your passion for pyrex with! My gramma had the large white bowl with the big red polka dots. When she passed, my sister took it. It was a cherished piece for me. Gramma always made her famous potato salad in it.
When I was first married, Gramma bought the whole friendship set of bowls for me. She really liked the reds, and yellows. Good memories.
