This Flea Followed Us Home

DSCN0980I vastly prefer solid color vintage Pyrex, but I found this one at the Long Beach flea market yesterday for $10.00 and I had to bring it home. Darling Dodger, our parrot, pushed the lid off of the counter about a year ago and the tile floor won that little contest. I saw others that had chipped lids going for $11-15, so this one in great condition was a bargain. I have a set of these, and they’re wonderful for storing and reheating food.  Love them.

This is one of the more palatable designs.  There’s also a green olive one that’s not bad and an orange and yellow flower one. But the mushrooms?  Not for me!

Wee succulant that will be properly repotted. Just taking a rest in a ramekin till I get around to transplanting. $3.00 from the grower.

I have always wanted a telephone chair like this!  It’ll be fun to change out the vinyl seat cover and refresh the veneer. What do you think?  Good deal at $30.00?  I am happy with it.

We left it in the car for a while in 100 degree temps and some of the veneer popped loose, but I’m gluing it back on.  It’s a little rough, so I might paint it.

Also bought a pair of padded drumsticks for $5.00. I’ve been looking for some to use on my cajon. Will probably add some fabric to them.

    You had a very fruitful flea experience! It makes so much better sense to store food in something that will go right into the microwave! And the telephone table is adorable! how fun

    I love that pyrex stuff too. I finally can bake fish and make it come out great now that i have one of these type pyrex dishes bought from the historical estate sale the Harmonistas visited near Fillmore.
