Jennie took me to her favorite antqiue store. It was large and thankfully not crowded. I saw lots of pretties for great prices. They had a Town and Country 503 for $4. Verde 045 for less than $15. A fish mail box for $40. And a butt-load of random stuff.
Sticking with my goal of completeting sets I did manage to complete a few.
I completed my Spring Blossom Bake, Serve and Store set. All I needed was the 472. Now they'll look nice and pretty back as a family.
I also grabbed 2 red 501s. They are slightly different in their shades, but red is not an easy color to keep the same in multiple batches. They finished off my primary set.
Nothing else. Now there were tons but I had a goal, and knowing I had to carry them all home I had to be pratical.
Now onto this hardware store. I m not joking. A while back a woman posted a picture of her local hardware store that is selling pyrex on facebook. The story is the brother/sister combo that owns it needed to generate more money. It happened to be by my cousin Jennie. I told my cousin this and she called. Jennie said they told her they didn't sell Pyrex. I was miffed. Was the woman trying to keep her little treausre trove a secret? or did I just not have the right store.
I made Jennie drive me to the store. I needed to see for myself. I ran in and there it was:
So in Detroit, skip the Sterns True Value Hardware store and hit up the Motor City Antiques. Tell them to keep the prices low because we love them and will spend more since they are awesome!
