Recently I’d been getting a bit depressed about my Pyrex collection – not because I’d lost interest – far from it but because it has grown so large that I don’t have room for any more! I still live in my family home with my mum and sister and although I have converted them to Pyrex fandom with my missionary zeal, we no longer have any room left to display or use any more. As I’ve said before, I really love hunting for vintage Pyrex so was sad to think those days were over. Then a couple of friends asked me to track them down some Gaiety and Butterprint, which allowed me to indulge my vice vicariously! That was when I had the idea for my Pyrex Party Pixie Etsy shop. I have a real horror of having a blog which constantly tries to sell things to people who only popped in for a quick read, so although I will put a link to the shop up, I certainly won’t be drawing attention to it!

I’m not sure I’m really cut out to be a shopkeeper as I’ve discovered that I find it rather awkward as I’m so anxious not to be pushy that I feel almost apologetic that I’m charging for the pieces! I also worry about them going to suitable homes. If only it was like an adoption process with home visits and the new owners having to prove they were of good character and pass an exam on how to care for vintage Pyrex before having the little treasures handed over to them!
Anyway, there will be no hard sell here although a few tales from backstage at my vintage emporium may escape onto these pages from time to time.
