Goldilocks Is Addled
About 10 years ago, my dear friend M gave me a nearly complete set of Franciscan Earthenware called Tulip Time. Through clumsiness, carelessness, and general attrition, a creamer bit the dust as did a number of the medium sized dishes we used most often.
I was tired of seeing the sad spot where the creamer wasn't. I found online sellers and happily replaced the creamer. I was nervous about the dwindling stack of our dinner dishes.
I ordered 4 online. They came in a big, well packaged box. Too big as it turns out!
One person's dinner dishes are another's chargers.
I tried again. Another big box containing 4 small dishes, too small! More like dessert-sized. I was surprised as I thought I read each description carefully. I didn't send anything back as the postage was about the same as the cost of the items.
So now we have a stockpile of our least used pieces. Dare I try ordering again?
I saw that a company specializing in replacement offers a measurement to the quarter inch in their descriptions. Maybe that will turn out just right?
