Happy post Valentine’s Day! How was your sweet day? Ours was lovely but I needed to go to the gym asap this morning to burn off some calories from all of that food and candy! So worth it! And I just got a notification from UPS that my shipment is coming today. Always fun news. I found another place to find missing china pieces! Where?
Last week I shared the company called Replacements, Ltd. It’s a great store in North Carolina (my home state) that sells practically any china, crystal or silverware you can think of. They carry discontinued pieces as well as current patterns. It is a great resource for missing pieces to your set, or if you decide to add to your place settings.
Recently my sweet Mother-in-Law gave us her mother’s vintage china. She told me there were a few missing pieces so naturally I turned to Replacements. com. I needed 4 cereal bowls and 2 cups. I checked their website and they had the cups with the saucers but no bowls. Also available were 5 dinner plates that had “noticeable imperfections” for 50% off. They were $17 each. Since you never know when you’ll need more dinner plates, I ordered those along with the 2 teacups.
The next day during my daily coffee chat with my sister, I mentioned my recent purchase and the fact they didn’t have any of the bowls. She asked if I had checked eBay for the china? No, I didn’t even think of that! So, I checked eBay after we finished our chat and sure enough they had some of the china! (It helps to know the name of the pattern and the manufacturer.) Someone was selling a set of 5 dinner plates, in PERFECT condition for $31! Five plates! One perfect plate from Replacements, Ltd. is $33. WOW! I couldn’t believe it. Better yet, it was “Buy it now”.
Naturally I bought the 5 perfect plates from the eBay seller and cancelled the order with Replacements. I felt bad about cancelling the whole order so I still bought the 2 cups and saucers from them. I saved over $50 on the plates! Replacements is still on the look out for my bowls and some of the larger serving pieces. But the new plates should get here today and I can add them to the set in the china cabinet. So, a BIG thank you to my sweet sister for suggesting eBay for my china! Now when I troll eBay for chandeliers I will search for our china pattern too!
Hope you have a great day! Stop by later this week to see our actual working appliances! xoxo Dell
