I have seen, a lime green lasagna pan ($15) and a town and country 444 ($18... on crack!). I have both.
But this lasagna pan I did not have.
|So excited it got a "in the car" picture.|
Yup I found me a Friendship 933. I went to buy this pan a few months back but it was sold. It was at our local Antique Shop. It was $24. Not when I found this at SA it was marked at $24. I know, I know I said I was going to buy the other at $24 but damn it, I want thrift store prices at the thrift store.
So I talked to the manager. I told him the week before I saw the same (well roughly, but he doesn't know that) size and shape for $15. I asked what was up with the big price difference. So he looked at me and at our SFC (super friendly cashier) and she said she indeed had seen and it and even had a conversation with me about it. So he gave it to me for $15. (and on top of that it was % off day, so I got it even cheaper).
Sometimes it pays to price check everything.
Now send me some Pyrex vibes. I have a new cabinet to fill!
|At the thrift store.|
I got the manager (of a different thrift store).
Me: "See this shelf? I want it. But not at that price."
Manager: "I could do $75. "
Me: "See all this furniture down here? I have a 4Runner. This could be gone today. No moving it ever again. $30"
Manager: "$45 is the lowest I can go."
Me: "$35, gone, never see it again. I put it in in my car and drive away. You have space."
Manager. "$35.... okay yeah. "
Me:" THANK YOU!"
Now please notice I started really low. Like stupid low from the asking price. Better to start low and go up than be at a stand still. I also don't always do this but it worked here; telling him I wanted it. Since they were moving furniture to another location and having a sale on every piece except this shelf I wanted him to know it had a buyer, win for them as less to get rid of at the other store. Make their store more profit. I also did not back down easy. I will not be a pushover. I stood my ground. I had a number in my head to start with and I would not go over. I also didn't he and haw around. No thinking, just doing.
|A better view of the thing. Gold and cream. EW|
|Coat 1. It took 3!|
|See the huge difference!|
Still need to find some handles. I want repo jadeite. The middle section on the bottom holds THM's school stuff and homework. It works perfect and I am not keeping any more Pyrex in hiding. Although I would hide new Pyrex form THH in there. His opinion on it; "whatever makes you happy." Good man.
|Not my final display. I am still working on it. Need more Pyrex.|
