I mentioned in my previous post that I came upon some nice Pyrex that someone must have just donated to my local MCC thrift.
I have never really had much luck at this location, but you just never know. I spotted this Pyrex promotional Buffet Twins set, complete with cradle and lids! It was all taped up with packing tape, which is usually so hard on the gold leaf pattern. I cringed as I removed it in the store to see if there was damage.
Luckily, the lids were blemish free, the interiors perfect, and the pattern in good shape.
I thought the set was a bit steep at $15 but I had to have it! I have never seen a cradle with full set in the wild before!
I think the brass cradle has made some scratch marks on the pieces themselves but I don't know if there is any way to avoid this, other than ditching the cradle. I feel like I always need to gingerly set the casseroles down!
I mentioned before that I saw the compass divided dish but it was actually the Constellation pattern, the one with the yellow stars. I kind of regret not buying it now, as it was perfect and complete with its lid... Would you have scooped it up for eight bucks?
