On the way down to my other brothers we made a pit stop at the Long Beach Antique Market. Just my mom, stepdad, THM and I.
Marked at $8.
I offered $5 and the woman accepted.
My mother actually spotted this and talked me into it. I do like it. Saw another at a different both marked $15. I think I got the better deal.
I wanted the bottom 3. After not finding any pie plates for a year. I talked the lady into $12 for the 3 (and I had to do some bargaining too, she didn't want to come down on her price) Then just as she was getting her money to make me change, almost in my hand I said "throw in this one marked $3 for an even $15) Basically I got one free. I think when I left she wasn't too happy. I drive a bargain.
Early American 503 Marked $8, paid $4
The Early American was on a half off table. I was prepared to offer $5 until I saw it was on the half off table. It finishes my set.
Old Orchard was at the "Pyrex Lady's" table. She wanted $6 and I literally waved a 5 dollar bill at her and said "5 or nothing for the ugly one." She reluctantly took the $5. That was the last table we stopped at for the day.
The next day while my mom and I were waiting for everyone to get ready for the day we took a short (2 hours, LOL) trip to a few thrift stores. THM stayed with my niece and played.
Used my gift certificate from christmas for this. My brother got me one and it could only be used at San Diego goodwills. So happy to be able to use it on Pyrex.
I don't care for the pattern in cinderella bowls, but the Cinderella Casseroles (480 Set) - 473, 474, 475 is very pretty.
Last but not least is the Top Prize of the trip. Tuesday I had to run to CVS to get some Benadryl as THM had an allergic reaction to the sheets at the rental house we stayed at. He was swollen and red. And covered in hives. Poor kid. Still he never acted like anything was wrong.
We all drank, played hard and had to say good bye. But not forever.
