So we decided to push west to wards Morrisburg (20-30 min from Cornwall) on the Heritage Highway (rte 2) and then like in a dream....We saw a garage sale on the other side of the road and I asked to stop. I don't stop to all sales, I passover the ones that seem to only have kid stuff...
So we had to turn and drive back...and then maybe 50 to 100 feet from it I yelled: Hey! There's a Pyrex Carafe! And yes there was one and better there were 2 Pyrex carafes!
Here are the 2 carafes from the garage sale. In front 2 jadeite Fireking berry bowls I found in a barn for a song and the 401 Pyrex Opal bowl I found here...
This wonderful haven of antiques and collectables is on Heritage Highway (Rte 2) west of Morrisburg. I don't know how far, but not that far.Okay,okay I loose all track of time when I'm on the thrifting war path!
I had everything a glass collector could want! Rooms and rooms and rooms of glass and pottery. It was packed from floor to ceiling. And there was Pyrex in every room! No lies!
Hum! Delphite! and Pyrex!
Oooh out of focus but you can still see the PYREX!
Look at all that blue! And there was one room full of MILKGLASS! That's when I thought of you Douce France! All the milky glass goodness...so white,so pure! Why I didn't take a pic, I don't know!
Look at that light on the Shenandoah Pyrex bowl....
This was taken in the basement. Look at the view of the St-Lawrence river! WOW!
I was really excited to find this place opened because we had drived in front quite a few times but it was always closed. The prices are not cheap but not crazy either. I know for a fact that you can bargain a bit 'coz I was able to just that for my bowl. I have been looking for that little guy for quite a while. Opal is hard to come by, they didn't make a lot of items.
They are open 7 days a week, 10 to 5 until October; at least that's what the lady said!
Oh and I found this at Value Village...
This paper towel/aluminum/waxed papaer dispenser is so shiny you can see my whole kitchen in there!
I hope you enjoyed this installement of Fantabulous Road Trip! So if you're not that far, pack a picnic and jump in the car and head out west or east depends and take the old road west or Cornwall and you just might be surprised!
