FAKE FIESTA

I have new dishes!  Lots of pretty colors, don't you think?  I have been coveting Fiestaware, but could not afford it.  Even on sale it was too much for me to spend.  Today I was walking through Cheepko, and saw they had dishes on clearance.  The colors were nice and bright, like the Fiesta colors, and the price was fantastic!  In fact, I got all eight four-piece place settings for just a few bucks more than one place setting of Fiesta.
The colors aren't the same.  This brand doesn't have the chocolate color that I really love, and there also is no peacock or aqua color.  But these colors are just fine by me!  Especially considering the price I paid for them.   And these bright colors sure do make my old white dishes look pretty boring, don't they!

And, every time I think of replacing my dishes (I got a 5-piece place setting every time I spent $125 at the grocery store), I think I will just get Corelle Winter Frost so that it will look nice no matter what color tablecloth and napkins I am using... but I will never do it until I break my very last dish. I'm cheap like that.

Very pretty! I'm glad you treated yourself. Now you can invite us over for supper to try them out.

Can I buy your old white dishes to replace my 5 plates I got for a quarter?
