My new treasures





Yesterday I went to one of my favorite flea markets: Finnegan's in Hudson Quebec. It is situated in a field and is kind of small but really charming. And the energy yesterday was magical, and people were excited! I spotted the turquoise 403 for 8$ and I mustered the strenght to bargain, so i got it for 7$. Of course I had support from my love. Next in another booth I spotted the holy grail of Delphite; a Pyrex delphite pitcher: I didn't even know it existed...I just love delphite, the color makes my heart sing and I am always amazed that it is made in Canada! I grabbed it and would not let it go. I had to think about it, 'cause it was 18$. But I had just sold the famous 3 bowls Butterprint set to a dealer so I had money to spare...Here you can see it next to the creamer for size reference. My heart is still fluttering...Today I scored a Butterfly Gold 471 casserole(no lid) for 2$. I had never seen such a small casserole. Pyrex keeps popping up from everywhere! I remember a time writing Madge from Solid Cherry to complain that all the snow birds had taken The Pyrex to Florida...

Thanks for your comment! You always make me smile! I promise that as soon as the weather cools, the snowbirds will join you with their Pyrex in sunny Florida!
