Castaway Estate Sales are experienced, certified, insured Estate Liquidators. They usually sell out of St. Petersburg, Florida.
Earlier this week they listed a set of Pyrex mixing bowls for $9.99 on eBay. To their surprise, the post blew up.
As it turns out, their set of four turquoise Pyrex mixing bowls, painted with white daisies, might be one of the rarest Pyrex sets ever made.
The couple who run Castaway Estate Sales will be happy to answer any questions about them to the best of their abilities. If you are thinking about making a bid - the price has gone up. As I write, the current bid is at $8,901.00 (and it's gone up twice).
Part of Pyrex’s popularity is due to the nostalgia factor. Many collectors love Pyrex simply because it reminds them of childhood. Pyrex lover Sylvia Schanche says she inherited pieces from her mother and grandmother and likes using pieces she remembers as a kid growing up in the 60s and 70s.
In the original listing from Castaway Estate Sales said “local purchases only,” but changed their tune when bids came in from around the world!
