There is only so much space one can give over to china sets!
Three plates are this design above, which Bernie likes best.
I also got three of this pattern.
Because mix and matched dishes are more fun anyway.
I already had the painted wood napkin rings..they were wedding presents from almost 33 years ago!
But wait! There is more!
My Christmas dishes included a stripped edge charger size plates and bowls.
Look how perfectly they mix with the "new" plates.
flat wear set as well that will work nicely at Thanksgiving dinner.
I was only planning on getting two plates...one for each of us...but then I remembered my son and his wife *might* sometime come for dinner.
And that perhaps sometime her parents *might* come out for Thanksgiving as well. In any case, for a total of six bucks, I decided I could afford to be prepared.
Storing six plates won't be any big deal either. I just won't plan on serving coffee with the meal; it is always the cups and saucers that take up all the space when storing dish sets.
There are no chips, no scratches and both patterns are dishwasher and microwave safe. The plates are brand new. I wonder why they were given away.
In the future I plan to aquire special day dishes more often, but generally I'll be getting just two plates at a time; one for me and one for Bernie.
