Place Settings for the Holiday Feast… or anytime

It’s not to late to find some great pieces to add a bit of panache to your holiday table this year.

Even better, this is a GREAT place to complete your china set…. or find some treasures such as Christmas tree ornaments, Disney collectibles, Waterford glassware and silver flatware — just to name a few.

Great-Great-Grandma Kringle left a set of china to ol’ Kris.  There were a couple of chips in some of the plates (probably from a rambunctious elf who had a bit too much of the Holiday Spirits, if you know what I mean)… but no problem… were able to find the pieces we needed to replace to keep the set complete.

It is more than China… it is a memory of that wonderful woman and the good memories around her table.

Here is a sample of blown glass Christmas tree ornaments found at These Santa ornaments were created by Merck Family’s Old World Christmas. The site also features Hallmark and works by Christopher Radko.
