Pyrex Dishes

My mom and I had a conversation last night about Pyrex dishes, so I thought it would be fitting to do a little post about my own.

I love the little glass storage containers that you can use for your leftovers. They're super cute and come in all types of patterns! I see them at antique stores all the time, however I only have a few because I try to find them as cheap as possible. (They are usually rather pricey at antique stores, in my opinion.)

I got this one at an antique store in Bellefonte, PA. The seller was having a sale (20% off or something of the sort), and it was my first pyrex purchase. I felt like such an adult because I was actually buying kitchen items for my new studio apartment (plus, how cute?!). I treasured this one from the very beginning.

I found this one at a yard sale for 50 cents - a steal!!! Now THAT'S what I'm talking about. I just love the thrifting hunt, and finding hidden treasure like this, when people just want to get rid of their things for pocket change. This one made me very happy, and I love using it - that handle comes in very handy.

It's absolutely killing me that I can't remember where I found this one. I almost always remember where I find stuff because it's such a little adventure. I think I must have gotten it at a thrift store. That would explain why I can't remember (I hope!). Anyway, this one is perfect when the other two are a tad too small (those two hold the same amount as each other). Plus that design reminds me of PA Dutch art, so obviously it caught my eye.

The hunt is still (and always will be) on. I always check the prices on these babies, but rarely pick any up. This also comes from a realization that we don't technically neeeeed more of these at the moment. However I think they're darling, and much better than plastic containers. Until next time...

Happy Thrifting!
