Ah the mystery that is Value Village. I was perusing the shelves the other day and saw a small Pyrex mixing bowl in the Shenedoah pattern priced at $3.99. Right beside it was this beauty - an oval casserole with lid in perfect condition for the same price!
I find it a bit odd that a tiny little Pyrex mixing bowl costs the same as a good sized casserole dish with patterned lid...
The other interesting thing is that this is the second Butterfly Gold piece to add to my collection - I previously bought a Store and Serve piece from the same VV that was two dollars more, even though it's smaller!
Sometimes I get a bit frustrated with Value Village. The inconsistency in pricing is hard to deal with because I know that a certain piece can cost anywhere between $4 to $12 depending on who is reviewing the inventory.
On the other hand, I guess I should just shrug it off when something is expensive, and swoop in when it's cheap, like I did with this score.
Luckily I was also able to get out in the garden today with my new piece, harvesting some peas and a little baby carrot!
I'm participating in Colorado Lady's Vintage Thingie Thursday and Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove!
