Some Finds

It's hard to find anything lately for resale. Most of what I bought this week, I'm keeping.

I paid a little too much for this 402 red primary bowl but I found the spring blossom butter dish for a steal.

My friend found me the Butterprint cinderella bowls at an estate he bought. It's missing a bowl and has a few chips but I love it.

I was going to bid on a blue Fire King relish dish on ebay, but the sniper program I used, didn't place my bid. I found out after the auction, ebay didn't recognize my password so the sniper couldn't work. I was happy to find the white one the next day at Goodwill.

I also found this cute silver cat.

Garage Sale Season

Garage sale season has finally arrived. I only went to 2 this morning but hopefully there are more to come. I didn't find much I wanted and haven't found anything for resale.

I didn't think this lid was Pyrex because it wasn't marked but the dish was. From what I gather, it's a promotional piece called Nouveau Floral.

I found these Holt salt and pepper shakers at an antique mall. I went back the next day and bought the large Fire King Tulip bowl. I wish I could find the others.

I'm almost certain there is a lady in the back room at the thrift store hoarding all the Pyrex. My friend told me about a Butterfly Gold cinderella casserole set and when I came back when she was supposed to be working, she wasn't there. I was told she was no longer going to be working there. And the Pyrex was never put out. But little Miss Hoarder missed these 3 Pyrex cups.

Some Finds

My sister found the light yellow bowl at the consignment shop.

I was excited to find these opal bowls thinking they were Pyrex. A member in a Facebook group thought they were Hazal Atlas.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this Salton warming tray.  It works but the knob falls off and the cord doesn't connect correctly.

I've been looking for a vintage Kitchen aide mixer but was happy to find this Sunbeam one.

I've never seen England Pyrex in the wild until today. Although it's newer (1980s) I like it. It's white.

And a metal colander which is actually a bad idea for draining hot items.
