Friendship Pyrex: New In Box!

Friendship Pyrex:
New In Box!

I can't believe I never took a pic of the box & the casserole without the paper!
Oh well, camera's put away.

Late last week, a seller posted online a NIB 943 Friendship casserole. I somehow responded to the ad within 16 mins. I told her I wasn't able to get to where she was at (3 hours away), but inquired whether she would be able to mail it. She said she would find out shipping costs, but asked where I lived, since her son works in Toronto. I let her know, telling her everywhere is accessible via transit. Wouldn't you know, Sunday was Father's Day & her son was headed up there... 

He lugged the NIB Pyrex all the way back, to get it to me. Isn't that wonderful? She had offered, since her son was going to be up there anyways. I was ecstatic! This is my 3 piece of Pyrex in the box - I have a set of 3 Spring Blossom Green (with the smaller flowers) & the Golden Hearts promo, along with cradle & candles. Both of those were $15. 

What I thought was a few blocks from his house (ended up being about half an hour!) was a Value Village which I frequent often. & wouldn't you know, I found not one, but two of something that I have been looking for for YEARS in a thrift store. The last time I found one similar was 13 years ago. They can sell for up to $100 on eBay & I had one in the '90s that we got from Giant Tiger for $9. Stay tuned for Thriftasaurus later this week to find out what it is! Some of you probably won't care, but it'll be nostalgic for others.. 


Now, I know the majority of this casserole is orange with hints of red in the lid, but when I think Friendship Pyrex - I think red, white & orange. So, since people can link up with a box of ritz crackers in their kitchen cabinet, I am going to link up to Rednesday with this beauty.
Also gonna link up with Junkin Joe with The Cottage Market! 


  1. It's beautiful! What a great find!
    I can't WAIT to see what else you found!!!!
    Erica :)

  2. Shut up! Friendship in the original box? So what are you going to do with it? I am scared to ever find Pyrex in the original box because I don't know if I would take it out of the box to display or display with the box. And what if the box is ugly? Am I still supposed to use it? Decisions decisions. You must let me know what you are going to do. That is, if you are still speaking to me since reading my auction post. :-)


  3. I bet the son was real impressed to be drafging Pyrex around!! Hah!! Good for you, it's a nice one!!

  4. Hahaha! I totally agree with Erica...shut up! I'm so excited for you, its spectacular! And that son has to be one of the nicest dudes ever. So cool that you didn't have to pay crazy shipping.
    I have a NIB Lace Medallion that I love!!! I displayed the box for a bit too, but it just took up too much space. Every once in a while I look at it and smile though.

  5. What a great find!! Lucky, lucky you!! Happy belated Rednesday!

  6. Great find! I guess they must have made this with both a clear and white top. I have the same casserole with a white top with the design. But I don't have the box. Good for you!

  7. What a great find I love it when it's in the original packaging.

  8. Now I know what I'm looking for! I have the lid...I thought the casserole would be red for some reason. Isn't it great when it all works out like that!
