It's been a helluva Pyrex dry spell! In fact, I still don't have any new finds to show off. I did, however, find some lovely vintage pieces that more than compensated.
A couple weeks ago, I found a red Dansk frying pan (there's probably a better name for it, but I'm new to Dansk) at a nearby SA. I remembered seeing similar ones on jenib's blog. It was in good shape, had its lid, and they wanted around $5 for it, but on the inside of the lid was a loonie sized chip or scratch where the enamel came off. I passed on it, and thought 'that's that' since I've never run into these before and thought I wouldn't find one again.
A few days later, the red frying pan was gone (I was kicking myself). But, this blue fella showed up!
The same day, I popped into a small local charity shop. They seem to only carry Old Orchard (which I don't collect), if they have any Pyrex at all. No Pyrex that day, but in a glass case near the front I spotted a cute pink box with an elephant on it. I just had to check it out.
Finally, I've wanted to tell you about this next find for a while but there never seemed to be the time. I love, love, love books, so I always check out the book section when I'm in a thrift store. I almost passed over this copy of "The New Joy of Cooking" because I associate the white covers (with red and blue) with this title. The dustjacket has an almost lime green background and the design definitely looks vintage. According to the copyright page it's from 1954.
I can't remember how much I paid for it, but it was probably less than $5. It's in great shape.
So that's it that's all for this winding post. Cheers!
