Above, you will find my new Moon Deco casserole dish. I just think it's the coolest Pyrex design ever. It was also my most expensive single purchase, but there is a story...
We were at the Southwarks antique mall in Cambridge, ON last week. My husband came walking towards me with the dish in his hands and asked if $28 was a fair price. I almost grabbed it out of his hands. "Yes!" The truth is that I don't know what's a fair price, but I do know that at another booth at the same place, the exact same dish has been sitting on the shelf for at least a year. The seller is asking over $80.00 for it. To me, that's grocery shopping money. I was going to treat myself to it down the road if I came into windfall money, but who knows if that day would have come, or even if I could have ever justified spending that much on one piece of Pyrex.
The moral of the story once again is that you have to keep on looking because you just don't know what you'll ever find.
My exciting news is that my husband and I are opening an antique stall in the just opened Valley Antiques mall in Dundas, ON. Our booth will be opening September 1st. We've amassed a pretty eclectic mishmash of old objects, which I will blog about soon. I don't think the manager has a website for it, but if you live around southern Ontario, why not spend an afternoon and take in all the charming old goodness it has to offer. Valley Antiques is on Hatt Street in the old foundry building.
Ta ta for now!
