Not this Friday though. Maybe because they still had the chip bowl that wasn't selling at $12.50 they had come down on their Pyrex prices. Or maybe because whoever priced some pieces didn't know what they were.
This chip bowl had been there since January 23rd, it said so on the tag. That is rare for something to be there so long. But looking at it you wouldn't think it was anything special and just another mixing bowl. Well I thought so too the past few weekends. Until I looked it up and it is the bottom of a chip and dip set, that has a wooden handle. I know I will never find the handle, but that is what my brother, a wood worker, is for as he can make me a new one. I picked it up because all last week I kicked myself for not buying it since I now know what it is. I am glad the big guy has a loving home now, Even though it doesn't have a pattern name I still love it.
While browsing the housewares I spotted a yellow dish. I picked it up. Gasped at the price and looked it over. Man was it dirty. Someone used this guy a ton. But no chips or cracks and not a utensil mark, just baked on grease. I imagine it was some old lady really loved this size. I know I do. My second piece of Desert Dawn. This pattern has to be my favorite. I just love the speckles. I don't know why but in person it is gorgeous. For $3 I couldn't say no to something so amazing. And to believe it was hiding under some random tiles.
I pick up lids whenever I see them. You never know when you will come across a bottom. Especially divided lids, those seem hard to come by. This little lid is from Hollywood Goodwill. I found the bottom in housewares at SA for $4 or so dollars. It also is in great shape. The little cats are pretty cool, different. I don't own Early American and don't care for the pattern that much, but for thanksgiving a divided dish would be perfect.
Sad though because I picked up 3 dishes I knew some I had at home had to go. I let go of a Fire-King and 2 GlasBakes I didn't care for. At least Treasure Hunter Hater brought me home some lights from his work. I don't care for them. They seem to bright. Must find a better way to take better shots.
Yard sale this weekend, time for others to find nifty treasures.
