Even In The Middle Of Nowhere Mr. Modtomic Can Sniff Out The Bargains! Orange To Yellow Nesting Mix Bowls By Pyrex. Status: Mine All Mine!
One day while we were in Lake George NY it started drizzling on us so we decided to go for a little drive in the country side. We picked a random side road and drove. We were kinda looking for a good place to get some local eats but we found a little thrift shop instead and BLAM...score!
OK, full disclosure. The Girlfriend spotted the the little thrift shop (I was DRIVING...trying to
keep us from a fire-y death), but I spotted the Pyrex mixing bowl set all by my self. This little
(really little) shop was in a little (really little) place called Lake Luzerne - Hadley. The two guys
there were super nice too. We were trying to find a local place that served trout and we got
them all involved, searching the internets for us. We didn't find the trout but I did get a real
bargain on the Pyrex. $23!
Now I have a set of Green to Yellow AND a set of Orange to Yellow Pyrex mixing bowls!
Whoa whoa...whoa. I'm not collecting Pyrex. No sir. I Do Not have the space for THAT! That
takes a level of commitment that I am just not prepared to give. I might keep a set of Primary
Color mixing bowls if I find them cheap but that's about it for me.
That being said, there's no way I'm parting with these! I've never even SEEN a set in this color
before! And I've been through lots of antique malls and seen probably 1000s of Pyrex mixing
