Three Goodwills and a Salvation Army Later...

Well today was thankfully a day off from both of my jobs.  What better way to spend it then by thrifting my lil heart out?  I suppose I could have folded laundry like a good girl...but the prospect of finding Pyrex was far more tempting.  As the title of this post suggests, I was able to hit 4 stores...and I scored!

Dream come true, I found 3 lime Pyrex 080 individual casseroles at Goodwill.  I scooped them up so quick I didn't even think about the fact i already had a large quantity of Pyrex in my hands...luckily my dad had went to grab a cart and came to my rescue, Da-Da-Dah!  I also found 2 spring blossom shakers (each at different stores) and my dad found an old towne blue shaker.  He also found the 1 cup mini coffee pot.  Next up are the two Pyrex divided casserole dishes I found, one a promotional Constellation and the other in Butterfly Gold. 

And yet there is more.  I found a red band Corning restaurant ware cup as well as a wood pattern Pyrex See-n-Store.  I'm hoping to paint the see and store though, I just can't bring myself to be a fan of the faux wood look.  Also, I found 2 Fire King(?) jadeite saucers and an older jar lifter with green wood handles.  The two homeless lids will hopefully find a casserole to match up with one day, especially that space saver one.  My-oh-my how I wish the casserole was found under this lid.  Last for this photo is a souvenir plate from the Corning Headquarters in NY. 

Finally, I also picked up this double drawer filing cabinet/card catalog thingy for $4 at Goodwill.  I liked it because it's actually in decent shape and the drawers still pull easily.  I will have to find a place for it.  

That's all for now folks!  Hopefully more coming soon. 


  1. I'm jealous of your faux wood container!! And the lime 080's are so cuuuute!


Thank you so much for any comments or feedback! I adore hearing from the people who take the time to read my overly excited - sometimes scatter brained - posts.
