Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Lets pretend you like the pattern a lot.  would you buy plates and bowls from the dollar store (Dollar Tree)?


I want to buy them (and I probably will tonight) but MIL says they are not safe and some how DH is believing her

No. I would wonder about the quality. I just don't go into the dollar store browsing the dishes aisle.

I usually go in there for a drink or to stock up on way to many pregnancy tests, lol

Pssssh, my kids break dishes like I change underwear.  I bought a set of dishes a while ago from a thrift store....on half price day!

I have some.bowls from there. The bowls in the set we have are way too small, and the big ones are really shallow. So I got some deep ones from the dolla sto.

definitely cheaper to buy a set. I really could care less where my things come from as long as they are cute & useful.

Sure, but dinnerware sets are usually cheaper elsewhere.
