The Pyrex Gods were smiling down recently when I found three "new" Pyrex pieces to add to my growing collection - and all in one weekend.
Pyrex Butter Dish - I have been wanting a Pyrex butter dish for some time now. I only use butter these days - not margarine, so having a butter dish is a very practical item for me. Of course I'm not going to go and buy a new one from Target if there are vintage Pyrex ones available. That is just not me. They are listed on ebay all of the time. They aren't incredibly pricey - but as with all breakables - the shipping is costly, making the overall price higher than I wish to pay. Plus I am always hoping to find one at an estate sale or something. I guess it is the junker in me. The rush you get when you find something on your wish list and pay practically nothing for it can't be beat!
In the end I finally found the butter dish at an antique store. Amish Butterprint is the pattern I was looking for as it is one of my favorites. The price was more than I would have paid from a yard sale but still less than ebay, which made me happy. I am smitten with it! It is already being used in my kitchen.
