I haven't posted many Thrift Share Mondays recently, because I haven't been doing a lot of interesting thrifting! I have been trying to get some of my thrifted stockpile sold or given away, though, which is always an arduous process. I photographed a few things last night to put up on Etsy (hopefully today...), so I thought I'd show you those.
I think I've shown you this Taylorstone Cathay set before--it's a small platter and five shallow bowls (I think they were marketed as "berry bowls"). I love this pattern so much. It is, as far as I know, a 50s/60s pattern.
This is a great set--three mint condition Pyrex Cinderella bowls in the Butterprint pattern. I actually bought all three at separate locations and separate times, but they are all similarly unused looking. Pyrex started making this pattern in 1957, but I'm not sure how long they manufactured it for.
This is Pyrex set in less stellar condition. It's the Old Orchard pattern, and the bowls, particularly the mid-sized one, have visible scratches/wear around their bottoms. I couldn't resist them, though, because they were so familiar to my late 70s/early 80s childhood self. I think my stepmother may have had this actual set, or maybe fridgies in this print? At any rate, they made me nostalgic.
I am realizing that thrifting dishes for profit is just not a niche I am going to succeed in, so I'm desperately trying to stop buying more stuff than I can use or store. It's so difficult, though! These pieces are so gorgeous, and so full of history. I hate leaving them on the shelf.
