Yesterday Caitlin and I hit a couple of thrift shops. I got my thrifted item for my Paris in the springtime swap, and I found another piece of "shmyrex." Actually, it's Fire-King, which is made by Anchor Hocking, and this is the company that makes Jadeite, which I love. I'm not sure if there's any bad blood between the Pyrex love people and the Fire-King people...is this a Montague and Capulet situation? Have I just committed a major faux-pas? Is it okay to love both? It's all vintage goodness, people! Share the love!
A brief trip to eBay proves my suspicions--there's a ton of beautiful vintage pyrex and Jadeite to be had--for a price. I had best stay far, far away. I could totally see myself getting sucked into auction wonderland...and ending up in credit card statement hell!
