Pyrex Joy and more....

It was a fantastic trip! We laughed, ate, shopped, walked, ate some more, napped, had snacks, saw the sights, thrifted, ate some more, swam, read and finnally ate some more. Let's just say that I'm done with fried whatever for quite some time! But boy was it ever good!

Speaking of thrifting....

 I've always bitched that thrift shops are a rare sight in coastal NH, well hello there! This Early American casserole was waiting for me.

Another added treat....A brand spanking new Salvation Army in Portsmouth! And guess what came home with me?

A 045 Promotional Casserole Hearts with warmer. The warmer rack was and still is soooo greasy sticky even after a good scrubbing....EEEWWWW!

  2 restaurant ware cups with dark turquoise bands and a darn I never remember the name of this one, I know it's not turquoise fern and Laurel is the red one....oh well!

Look at the logo! Strategic Air Command. See even military eat in Pyrex!

This is my favorite find? This avocado and turquoise mug (I've been aching for some for a while now....)

If I'd been a beginner collector our truck would have been filled to full capacity with Pyrex, but since I have soooo much (as Dan likes to remind

Not for other finds!

These cute glasses for 1.40$ each

I just need to find the other 50!

A fantastic tin cake dome with plate sandwiched between the girls (Peanut on the left and Yoda on the right).

I did find other stuff and I'll blog about it tomorrow. A hint? Think atomic! ATOMIC! whoohoo!

Strategic Air Command!!! I keep telling collectors that if you get some that your spouse likes, ie:guys, then they don't complain when you DO fill a truck. Why else would I have a milk glass mug with a train on it?

SAC?! Wow, Double wow!!

Hello, from Portland... Oregon! :)

The best part about Early American is the cat! I love the avocado mug with the turquoise flowers on it too.
