I’m a sucker for pretty colorful dishes. I googled just that and the first image that came up was these handpainted ones shown at the Imported Hand Painted Dinnerware Blog. In my own kitchen I’ve got a collection of vintage Fiestaware that I have been collecting since I was 16 years old. My dad got my collecting bug started when he took me to my first auction way back when. The last gift he gave to me before he died was the money to go to an auction he knew of that was going to be selling a lot of Fiestaware. I ended up with two platters and the dealers outbid me on the rest. I think of my dad whenever I look at my colorful dishes–which is daily. I believe in using them even though they are valuable collectibles.
I was never one to like fine bone China. I have friends that are really into it, registered for China for their weddings, collect their mother’s patterns, etc. I much prefer my bold everyday Fiestaware. But here’s something I do know. If you have a need to find a replacement for any of your fine China that may have broken or been discontinued, check out Replacements Ltd. This company happens to be nearby to where I live in North Carolina but you can work with them online from anywhere. Another HOT TIP: If you have China from a marriage that didn’t last, ended in divorce, or you simply don’t like it anymore then get rid of it! Turn it into cash by selling it to Replacements, Ltd. I frequently advise my feng shui clients to do this so that the old China doesn’t block their Love & Relationship ch’i.

When you got married, did you register for fancy china dinnerware for your wedding? What do you do if some if has broken? Having broken or incomplete stuff around your house is a feng shui no-no.
Maybe you got divorced and have one–or two!–boxes of wedding china kicking around in storage somewhere in your home. Hopefully it’s not in your Love & Relationship sector messing with your new marriage…or blocking energy so you can’t find a new partner.
Or perhaps you inherited various china from grandma and are afraid to use it and break it?
Here’s the solution: you can buy missing pieces of your china pattern at Replacements, Ltd OR you can turn your old china set into cash by selling. Now THAT’S good for your Wealth sector AND your Love sector! Replacements, Ltd is a huge retail store near Raleigh, NC. However, you don’t have to live in NC to take advantage of them. Do it all via phone, internet, or postal service.
I’ve never been married or registered for china but I do have a great collection of vintage Fiestaware that I absolutely love for its vibrant energy.
What’s your tableware like?
