$9.10 for everything you see in the photo and that was after the 30% mark-up for opening night.
- Engraved Pyrex 042-OR-642-B
- Pyrex 206 6" Pie plate
- Tiny 5" Pyrex pie plate marked 205-I, I think this is from the Pyrexette set
- Friendship 933 with basket (I think the basket belongs to Fireside Naturals)
- Cathrinholm stainless steel and black enamel tray
- 5 aluminum jello molds (they are holding up the various finds in the photo)
The engraved dish and the tiny pie plate from the Pyrexette set both have chips but I thought they were both so charming I couldn't leave them there. I hope I can find more engraved Pyrex in the future.
Here is a close-up of the engraving.
The Corelle Corner site has more about Engraved Pyrex on their 1931 Pyrex Catalog page here: http://www.corellecorner.com/magazine-ads/297-1931-booklet-pyrex-product-listing-prices-menus.html
The Friendship 933 baker is the first piece of this size I have found. It is also my first Friendship piece. It is in perfect condition and I can't wait to have an occasion to make a sheet cake for a party so that I can use it.
This was the score of the week! $4 for everything you see.
Sorry for having to post a bunch of catch-up posts. I really am trying to be a good, regular blogger.
Anyway, this haul is from a church rummage sale I ran to in the morning on 5-5-12. It cost $2 to get in early, but the prices were great so I think it was worth it. Everything you see cost me $4 (or $6 if you add the admission).
The teal divided vegetable dish is Vernon Ware. It looks like they included it in 2 of their patterned sets. That piece accounted for $2 of the $4 I paid for everything. It is in perfect condition with no chips, scratches, etc. It looks like it just came off of the store shelf!
The scarf is a Vera Neumann design. I just love the colors. The Waltz exposure meter is one they made for Polaroid cameras and is also in wonderful condition. The box still has the original $9.95 sales price on it. I love old photography and automotive books so when I saw these I knew they were coming home with me. The Valley of the Dolls is newer, but I have always wanted to read it so I brought it home with me too.

Sorry about the lack of posts. I will be doing a little catching up today.
The 2 books were found at a chucrch rummage sale. $2 ea. which isn't a great deal, but I do love vintage decorating books. I already have a newer version of the large book in mint condition so it was nice to get an older edition too.
The black snowflake 548 came from a basement sale. It is in mint condition, but came without a top. It was more pricey than my thrift store finds, but I still love it!

First, I picked up this sweet little terracotta chicken at a church rummage sale for $0.30 on Friday after work.
Then on Sunday we stopped in at the local weekly antiques market. I usually don't find much there, or if I do the dealers want a ton of money for it. This time my hubby came with me and I told him he must have been my good luck charm because there were a bunch of new dealers and the prices were much better than normal. I found 2 more of the older primary bowls, they were still very shiny and at $7 they came home with me.
Finally, I got a new shelving unit to store my Pyrex and other pieces on. I was getting nervous with them on the cheap bookcases had them on. I had visions of hearing a great crash in the middle of the night as a shelf or two let go and sent everything crashing to the concrete floor. Now I feel much better and can sleep at night knowing everything won't be ruined by cheap storage. This isn't everything, I have some pieces in my kitchen in use or on display.
I hope you had a good weekend and found some treasures. Happy thrifting!

Went to an estate sale on lunch and found two 1.5 qt. clear Cinderella bowls. I'd like to get the full set if I can. They really are beautiful, though hard to find it seems.
At the SA I found the 471 in Shenandoah. I just love the 471's. They're so cute and don't take up too much space. I think I'd like to collect them all, if I can.
