    I never picked out real china when I got married in 1970. My sister gave me some antique china a few years ago but by this time, I hardly needed any so I gave it to my daughter who loves to entertain. My "china" is nice everyday stoneware but I'd love to have some new cute stuff.

    Eighteeen years after I married my alter-ego straight out of the womb, we picked up a 16-piece set of "china" (read: porcelain) at a yard sale on the way to college. Six years later, we're still married, but our china set is down to, uh, seven pieces. Love is stronger than plates, I guess.

    sad to say I never had china and my sister got my grandmothers so unless I buy my own I wont have any I love this set its so cute

  7. Marie says:

    We didn't register for china – we figured we'd get more good stuff without that taking up so much of our registry! Also, my mom almost never used her china, worried when she did use it, and needed an additional piece of furniture to hold it. No thanks! Instead, we got very pretty everyday plates and matching chargers to dress them up for special occasions.

    First of all… I love LOVE love dishes, and they tend to be my weakness when shopping! I never registered for China, only my fancy goblets and I always regretted that. After 20 years of marriage my 100 year old neighbor "sweet Pearl" passed away and my husband surprised me with her set of "old but new" china that he purchased at her Estate sale! I guess I can say now that it was worth the wait! I still don't use it to eat on but it looks fabulous in my china cabinet and now holds a very special place in my heart and also sweet memories of Pearl!

    I use my china alot. Anytime we have a family get together or a big meal, we use it. My husband always said that eating a turkey dinner off of paper plates was a disgrace to our cooking! The guys would do the dishes since the women cooked the meal!! It is a fun time for all!
