May 24, 2013Finds Friday – Or What My Vintage Scores Were This Past Week!
Garage sale season has finally begun here, and man, it felt like it took forever to get here this year – I thought winter wasn’t ever going to end! This past weekend was Victoria Day here in Canada, so it was a long weekend, which usually means there isn’t too many garage sales. However, I made out pretty well at the few I could find!
After looking for green Pyrex casserole dishes for what seems like forever, I lucked upon another one this past week! No lid, but that’s OK, since you don’t always need a lid anyway.
Add liquor decanter bottles to the list of things that I have been looking for forever, but now seem to be plentiful. This one isn’t quite the same as the other two that I have, but the glass pattern was similar enough, and for 25 cents, I wasn’t about to pass it up!
I was super excited to find these Pyrex mugs in my Spring Blossom pattern. Both Corelle and Pyrex made mugs with this pattern on them (and they were meant to coordinate), but I was always hoping I would come across the Pyrex ones at some point.
I am guessing these mugs were from the later 70s since they make mention of being microwave safe on the bottom!
And finally, I am not 100% sure if these are mid-century or not. I bought them because I thought the blue glass would go well in my bathroom (which it does), but other than being Avon glass, I don’t know much about them. I believe Avon glass is quite collectible. Does anyone out there know any more about Avon glass? I would love to know more!
Anyone else come across any good finds this past week? I’d love to hear about them!
