Finding Collectible Pyrex At Estate Sales

Those of us that are baby boomers remember the many pieces of oven proof, often colored glass containers our Moms used in the kitchen when we were growing up. I still have the Pyrex round in red that my Mom made Jello salad in at least weekly.

Pyrex was a glass developed by the Corning Company in 1915. Pyrex is a low thermal expansion glass. There is a fascinating history to Pyrex and the way it was made. For those that enjoy history and science here is the link to Wikipedia to read about this remarkable glass.

Pyrex has become very collectible and a variety of pieces including bowls, casseroles, and other kitchen friendly pieces can be purchased at estate sales. An interesting piece of trivia about Pyrex is during the 1930s and 1940s they used designers to help develop the many designs and patterns you find today.

With a wide variety of colors and designs that were sold it now decorates many kitchens, china closets, shelving ,and other display areas. When you visit an estate sale don’t forget to check out the kitchen to see if this wonderful glass is included in the sale. A new collection may just be starting for you.

We have created a Pyrex board on Pinterest to showcase these and other collections.

Here are some photos from an avid Pyrex collector.

Repurposing & Upcycling Original Art By GadgetSponge.com From Estate Sales

GadgetSpongeBrickWallLogo copy

We recently interviewed nationally known repurposing and upcycling artist Brian Carlisle, of Gadgetsponge.com “A New Spin On Old Objects” of Shreveport, LA.

Brian’s artistic talents and vision have enabled him to create unique and original art pieces.  His creative passions have allowed him to see the endless possibilities of everyday items that can be found at estate sales, and with his genius become fanciful repurposed and upcycled original pieces of interior art.

Brians’ early career was as a graphic artist who enjoyed putting his creative juices sporadically to work on weekends. In 2010 he decided to let his fervor to fashion unique art become a full time business.

We asked Brian about what he looks for and finds at estate sales to use in his artistry. He replied ” vintage wooden water skis, old porcelain enamel heaters, vintage toys or tin objects that are broken, yard sticks, silverplate (including trays, pots, and utensils), old sewing machine bases, retro kitchen canisters (especially if they are unique), house hardware such as hinges, bath fixtures, door knobs, (and emphasizing parts and pieces such as screws etc. should not be discarded).

Brian’s specialty is birdhouses for interior art decor. He does create other artistic pieces, but always with the concept that each must be unique, original, and a one of a kind.

Here are some of the currently available artistic creations of Brian Carlisle.

You can find these creations and others on gadgetsponge.com

Here are some social media links to find Brian and his art on.

You can also find Brian Carlisle’s art work at the Timeline Collectibles & Antique Mall of Shreveport (318) 861-0808 and at The Agora Borealis (318) 268-3011.
