There's no better time to start collecting Pyrex and vintage kitchenware than the present. After all, neither you nor the dishes are getting any younger! But where do you begin?
Guides like Michael Barber's Pyrex Passion series offer boatloads of information, but even he concedes that the ever-increasing demanad for vintage Pyrex items makes the market more unpredictable than the NASDAQ. "People always want to know the resale value," says Barber, but even the published guides can't keep up with the constant shifts in the marketplace. "The best advice I can give is if you love it — and you can afford it — then buy it and use it. Why not?"
