Why You Should Buy China

My personal experience and recommendation.

There are lots of reasons for buying chinaware! Are you or a friend getting married? Get some as a celebration gift! Chinaware is pretty and useful since we all need something to eat on. Even if you don't want a fancy set, there are lots of less expensive, more simple designs that could fit whatever theme you may want to set. Or, if you're a fan of special occasions, you could have an extra, fancy set to bring out if you want to impress! There are even seasonal patterns for Christmas or fall (like in the accompanying image) for if you're feeling festive! And of course...

...You could always keep it for sentimental reasons. The set of china shown above was originally owned by my great-grandmother. The pattern, Harmony Rose, was discontinued in 1968. My mother gave it to me when I was little. It's old, but it's been in the family for a long time. Older china sets like these can have sentimental value to people. Buying one now can turn into an investment once the pattern is taken out of circulation. But it could also be a family legacy, something with a story behind it that's been loved by different generations. It's all about what you want it to be.
