The Crazy Suburban Mom: Collecting Pyrex frugally...

Collecting Pyrex frugally...

I love and adore vintage pyrex...but so does everyone else, it seems. While it can be found in many places on and off-line... the price tag is hefty.

I started collecting because I wanted to replace my plastic new containers with good old glass products that had not had a lead recall... Had not been found to be dangerous in anyway... And had stood the test of time.

On hunting for them I found the prices to be CRAZY-EXPENSIVE! If you have patience and time they can be had at yard and estate sales a piece at a time. I got mine over the last year and the most I spent was $4 for one of the large round bowls - most were under $1.

These were the first bowls I found... One at a time (patience, grasshopper!).... With many non-fruitful shopping trips between the fruitful ones.


Next came the blue and green one at an estate sale. I paid $8 for the two of them.


These small green casseroles were part of a score (SCORE!) at a recent estate sale. I think they were about $1 each? Not sure exactly because that was where I bought most of the pieces I have and they pyrex was lumped into sets at that sale.

You are right collecting Pyrex frugally is quite a quest! I try to do that, but sometimes I get carried away....

QueenB - I dont know the exact size but I put my palm over them and they are about the size of my hand and fingers... so pretty small. Like a serving dish for a single serve.
