Hi. My name is Sir Thrift-A-Lot, I'm from Toronto & I'm an avid thrifter of Pyrex. I have been to 20 (different) thrift stores in the past week searching high & low for Pyrex gems, but there was none to be find. Value Village, Goodwill, Value Village, Salvation Army, Goodwill, Value Village... Here is what set awaiting on the shelves today. This was it (minus some Forest Fancies that I missed the photo op for). This is 6 thrift stores. All different cities. I guess if you collected chipped, worn, extremely utensil marked or Old Orchard Pyrex - you'd be in Pyrex Heaven.
I guess this was a pretty neat find, something you don't see everyday, but just doesn't fight with my collection & I don't have space for it.
Anybody else experiencing a Pyrex "drought"?
I'm trying to chalk it up to everybody having their minds on the Christmas season, but... I am getting the feeling there are more Pyrex collectors in the area than I thought & that items are being slipped out the back. & it's funny, last Thriftasaurus, Amy from Acts of Salvage linked up, also from Toronto, & she shares my suspicions about Pyrex being slipped out the back at Goodwill! She was the one I eyed buying up the first pieces of Pyrex I've seen in that Goodwill in months - Shenandoah. Still surprises me sometimes what a small world it can be.
(OK, I got one decent piece of JAJ this week, missing a lid, utensiled to hell... will post Sunday!), but still 20 thrift stores & basically nil?
