I can't belive how long it has been since I have done a treasure hunt finds post. I have been thrifting but nothing has come home lately because not much was catching my eye. However, that all changed this week when I stopped at goodwill on my way home from work this week. I love the fun joy of never knowing what you will find when you walk into a thrift store. SO MUCH FUN!! I have been doing this for years, and it is still fun.
This week was a Pyrex week, which always makes me so happy. I have hardly found any Pyrex lately, so it was a joy to find some at a Goodwill that normally has nothing special to speak of.
I found these pretty coffee cups for $0.99 each. They had a whole bunch of them, but they are not super easy to drink out. Mr Joyful Thrifter and I have a thing about mug handles and we like GOOD handles on our mugs for daily use. These ones have more of a tea cup handle, so I bought two so I could share with a friend if they came over for tea. I do not have anything in this pattern so I was also excited about that.
The friendly Goodwill employee helped me spot this when she saw I was looking around for more Pyrex treasures. She showed me exactly where it was, and that I had missed it the first time I went down that aisle. Plus $2.99 is a great price for this beauty.
Side note. Does it make you sad when they use packing tape to keep the lid on? It makes me sad because it always pulls off the beautiful design on the Pyrex when you take off the tape. I would like to have a conversation with the person who does it and explain why they should use a rubber band or something else to keep the two pieces together. PLEASE PRESERVE THE PYREX! :)
Thank you for listening to my rant.
Finally the find that literally took my breath away! I am not just sounding corny because when I saw it sitting on the bottom shelf I said out loud "OH MY GOSH!" I could not believe that this beautiful dish was at this Goodwill. I snatched it up instantly. I couldn't believe the perfect condition it was in, and above all that this was one of the prettiest Pyrex dishes I have ever seen. I have also never seen it in real life. SO AWESOME!!! It was priced at $7.99, which I was more then willing to pay for an almost mint condition amazing piece of Pyrex.
Look at that amazing detail, and beautiful color. Pyrex Love has a bit more details on this lovely dish. The unofficial name of this piece is “Spirograph.” You can click on the Pyrex Love link to learn more about why it is called that.
I got so many compliments from people as I carried around my coveted treasure. Everyone loved the pattern and the color.
I do hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
