White Pyrex

Oh no, another pyrex post!!! But wait! The last one was about my coloured collection, this one is completely different - it's about my white collection!

While pyrex pieces in bright solid colours with simple patterns are my favourite, classic white pieces definitely add a touch of retro elegance to a Summer lunch or gathering...


These divided dishes are perfect for cooking 2 dishes at once or serving up different flavoured chips etc - $3 each.


I really like the green pattern on this casserole - $3.


Love the funky retro pattern on this casserole - $2.


After much searching for a complete set of pyrex ramekins at markets and in op shops I finally caved and bought this set of 6 on eBay - including postage they worked out at $2.50 each.


I've never seen this lovely rose design anywhere else, only $1!!!


I adore this big mixing bowl, white with mustard flowers, at the same time I picked up the even bigger contrasting mixing bowl - mustard with white flowers - $8 for the pair.


A cute platter with a retro design - $1.


This set is classic white with a green leaf pattern - 50 cents per piece.


Yet another serving dish - $1.

Also, I very happily came across an assortment of pyrex lids at $1 each in Vinnie's last week, I bought 5 which fit various casseroles and dishes I have - hurray!!!

You know, since you first posted about your Pyrex I've been on the lookout for some Pyrex pieces of my own (yes, copycat, I know!). But sadly I've not spotted any. It appears there's a Pyrex drought in the secondhand stores of Marrickville...!!

Thanks! I think I've just had a lucky streak, I could go by months without finding any and then just go to an Op Shop on the right day when somebody has gotten rid of a pile of pyrex and pick up 3 or 4 pieces at once.

I've been helping my parents move this week and in the midst of the decluttering and down-sizing I've managed to pick up a few things. One of them was a white pyrex dish with blue flowers. I'm very happy with it. (Mum wouldn't part with the matching bigger one. Darn!)
