Pyrex Find at Value Village

Just after Christmas, I had to drop something off at the post office and managed to zip into my local Value Village.

Have I mentioned that I just love fridgies? I spotted the yellow 503 from the primary colours set and it was in almost-perfect condition. I swooped into the aisle quickly because a young hipster was scouring the shelves nearby, and you just never know!

I hesitated bigtime when I saw the $6.99 pricetag. With tax, that is almost eight dollars! I caved and bought it, convincing myself that I have an orphan lid at home that has been waiting for it.

I use the dishes for marinading fish, holding and serving salads, and baking brownies so it really doesn't hurt to have multiples.

I also think it looks pretty cute with my Primary Blue and Delphite Blue Fridgies. =) Linking up to Thrift Share Monday at ATG!


  1. I'm with you on the fridgies! I find it so hard to pass one up in good condition if it's a decent price!

  2. I too love fridgies - they are so useful. I picked up a 503 and a 502 Butterprint with lids yesterday. They are doubles for me and need some elbow work, but I think they're worth it. Love the blue and delphite too!

  3. Aaaaaaagh the Delphite! It is so pretty. Something that I would love to find but haven't been so lucky (yet).


  4. I second the comment above...swooning over the Delphite one! I love fridgies too -- so handy!

  5. Nice combo - they do look nice together!!

  6. Love the thrift store "pounce"! Nothing is quite as gratifying than not only making a score but making it right under somebody else's nose! Those are lovely dishes too. :)

  7. You found some great pieces!!!
