What a weekend find! My first ever piece of pink Pyrex! Woohoo!
I never see pink Pyrex in thrift shops or at yard sales, until this weekend. This particular yard sale was one of only a handful being held this day. It was advertised as a moving sale, you know the type: “Everything must go!”. My experience with these headliner yard sales is that people really don’t mean it. They price the stuff they don’t care to pack up and take with them at prices that almost guarantee that this stuff is going along in the moving van. These folks had quite an eclectic assortment and many high-priced “antique” items. They even had a huge wooden carriage. Yeah, it was for sale, too. I wasn’t too confident I would find anything in my price range. And then I saw them.
I didn’t really even notice the pink piece at first. I was drawn to the aqua fridgies. There is something about the fridgies that calls to me. Maybe it’s my long-time love of boxes and containers? I don’t know, but I do love them. I scooped up the stack and hustled to pay for them.
I would love to actually use them for storage in the refrigerator, but I’m not. Nope. I’m too nervous to do that. I think they will still find use elsewhere in the house, helping me to tuck away a little of this and a little of that. Some place where only I will handle them.
Each of these pieces has its lid as well. There are a few chips here and there, but nothing major. I even like the way they look from this angle; very neat and tidy.
These colors remind me of the pastels of the beach. Yet another point in their favor!
You just never know what treasures you will find during yard sale season. My Pretty in Pink Pyrex was certainly a treasure for me!
