Recent Finds

Hello! So I never made it to that antique fair due to my schedule. I did stop at a couple shops during the week though.

First I'll start with the antique mall. When I walked in I didn't see too much, some cute stuff...but then I walked through another doorway & around a corner. I saw this & I know I gasped out loud, pretty sure I cupped my mouth too. lol. Sorry for the quality of the cell phone pics.

They wanted $115.00 dollars for the Friendship casserole dish! They called it a 4 piece set because it came with the original box. I'm not a Friendship expert, but I think that's not the correct lid?

The peach was so pretty, I almost bought a couple of the handled bowls, but decided against it...for now.

Dots, all sizes & colors... $28.00. I didn't ask if their prices were firm or negotiable. We'll see.

On the lower shelves not pictured were just about every promotional dish you could think of, except pink. Not much pink at all actually.

There was a man sitting in a chair & he asked if I needed anything. Um yeah, a moment to process all of this! ;)

I did find a pink Desert Dawn Pie dish. The outside was in excellent condition, inside needed some work. It was buried on a bottom shelf & not even near the other Pyrex.

Then I also stopped at a retro boutique. They had a ton of cute stuff there (including Pyrex), but again... most was overpriced. I did find a deal on a Ponderosa Mug & plate, a pink retro teabag holder, & on my way out I spotted Liberty Blue! The owner gave me 10% off at the register.

Here's everything:

I found the casserole above on ebay a couple of weeks ago, & it was very reasonably priced. I think it's 1 that slipped through, there was only 1 other bid, & shipping was very fair as well. It's in excellent condition. There was another one w/2 pints that recently went for $80.00 (not including s&h), so I think I lucked out. I REALLY wanted that pink!

I took a pic of all the Butterprint together too!

This post is pretty lengthy, I was going to share some of the little DIY projects that I've tried out, along with future plans, but that will have to be another post at another time.

Have a great day!



  1. Expensive Pyrex pieces are so discouraging - what are they thinking!!! Love your Butterprint casseroles - the colors look so pretty together!

  2. I don't think I've seen that much Pyrex in one place. That would definitely take some processing!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. I know, it's very discouraging to see some of these prices. $10.00 for a small fridgie! Granted it was turquoise Butterprint, but still. I get hopeful when I read about people that have snagged them for much less.

    Thanks for the comments, ladies!

  4. i just love all three colors of the butterprint. sooo pretty!

  5. My head would have exploded just walking in there. Lucky duck!

  6. What is the color of the paint for the wax paper holder? Its gorgeous!

  7. Thank you! It's an enamel spray paint called 50's aqua.

  8. Can you tell me the numbers of the 3 different colors Butterprint? It is beautiful.
