Pyrex Primary Jackpot!

It has been a while. I've been longing to find the primary refrigerator set, especially the practical blue rectangular loaf pan! I've also debated on the merits of collecting each single bowl of the primary mixing bowl set but now I finally have them all.

After responding to a Craigslist ad, my hubby humoured me and drove out to the boonies almost 25km away from our house. By the time we arrived, the sun had long set and we were hopelessly lost on a rural road. By the time we made our way, we realized we were going to a farmhouse that was in complete darkness. We were led by the seller past her barn of horses and to a back room that was filled with, well, you could call them knicknacks.

Don't they look relaxing there, basking in the evening sun?

But there they were! The Primary Bowl and Fridgies set, complete with lids (and even a couple extra of the large pan lids). The green mixing bowl is my favourite, don't you just love that colour?? The seller threw in an extra yellow small fridgie, so now it's looking very yellow in this scene from my Living Room...


  1. Thrifting can be scary! You and your husband were very brave!

    Gorgeous finds :)

  2. This did sound scary, going out to the boonies! Glad you found nice stuff. :)

  3. I just rescued some Pyrex pieces from my grandmother's house. So cool to find out the name, "fridgies". I also got a couple of mixing bowls in a very cool, light teal blue. (not sure of the actual name) Do you happen to know if they are from a set?

  4. Dawn, I do know there is a full set of aqua mixing bowls in a solid colour. Is that what you might have?
