hosting Pyrex Fest on Saturday, November 14. The event will be held at 113 S. Duke St., in the Royal Square District of downtown York, Pennsylvania, from 11a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Pyrex is ringing in 100 years of rich American history this year. For many people, Pyrex stoneware and glassware is a part of their childhood, “ said Allison Given, manager of Redeux. “From the refrigerator dishes that their grandma had to the pie plates that their mother used, it tells the story of the American dinner table over the last 100 years.

“Pyrex is a huge part of vintage & antique collecting and we have several sellers here that specialize in it,” Given added.

“Two of our vendors, Denise Wilt of Strange Beauty and Angie Kuhl of Lionfeather Studio collaborated on this event to celebrate the anniversary and invite regional collectors & hobbyists to join in.”

The event will feature rare and vintage Pyrex on display and for sale. There will also be prizes and

“We’re really looking forward to opening our doors and our neighborhood to regional collectors and enthusiasts of this iconic American house ware” said Given.
