"Hi, Tish! Welcome to the PYREX group. I am sorry that I didn't greet you immediately, but I've been traveling and staying with a friend who doesn't even own a computer let alone Wi-Fi. Anyway, this is an interesting group and I hope…"
"I live in the foothills of the Smokies, the only effect we had was the smoke and hazy look for days, anyone with breathing issues was advised to stay inside. I will be posting some of my of my glass in a couple of days, have some pictures on phone…"
"So many of us are dealers as well as collectors. As a TN resident, you must have access to amazing primitives. Is is hard to find vintage glass in great condition? My experience is that the further south I travel the more challenging it is. Were you…"
"Hi, Brenda!!! Welcome to our PYREX group. Are you a dealer or collector or both? What do you love about PYREX? Any treasures you can share with us here? Please feel comfortable jumping right in! Barbara"
"I think we tend to be drawn to "realistic" pot holders; these are the ones that are shaped like a recognizable item. I was digging through a box of yellow kitchen collectibles and found this gay and gifty tea cup. Your turn. How about…"
"Yes, Cream of Tartar, but there's a chance that someone placed a lid on this. It is still amazingly fabulous and having checked the lettering with magnification, it can be confirmed! You have scored a huge one!!!!"
"Since it has a lid, I am thinking like you said earlier that it might have been for Cream of Tartar. Since all of the spice jars are printed one liners maybe they just used the word Cream. I am really not sure."

I live in the foothills of the Smokies, the only effect we had was the smoke and hazy look for days, anyone with breathing issues was advised to stay inside. I will be posting some of my of my glass in a couple of days, have some pictures on phone that needs to be downloaded. I go to a lot of estate sales, and have found some unique pieces. Will be posting some by the weekend..

Thanks for the wonderful welcome. I'm in eastern NC actually, closer to the coast. I am looking forward to being a part of this group. Vintage kitchen items are my weakness. Pyrex, Corning, Glasbake, etc. not to mention pots, pans and roasters. Bless him, my other half now picks right up on the "good stuff" at flea markets, thrift shops.....And he has a pretty good eye too, lucky me!
Hi Barbara, Thanks! Glad to be here! I don't think we've met, though. I've never been to Renningers. But I sell online and at the Olde Factory in Hummelstown. So maybe from there? If not, perhaps we will meet someday! :o)
I'll share one of my recent sales - Pyrex Butterfly Gold Compatibles, still in the sealed box!DSC_0027-001.JPG
I collect cartoon glasses and in that collection is included jelly glasses. I sent an email to that interest in fact, asking why not include jelly glasses to the group title like - "Peanut butter and jelly glasses including swanky swig" I mean the relationship goes about as well as fishing and hunting, doesn't it?
