The World Market here is closing, and everything in the store is on clearance. Hmm. Though I’d altogether rather have it in town than not, it isn’t a place I go often, so I was more pleased than not to have such a consumer opportunity put in front of me.
Especially when I found the display of blue-and-white Chinese-style porcelain. Aha! Here is something I really appreciate.
I am a veteran with much experience in the trenches of consumer warfare. Dear readers: if you see something so pretty and perfect and cheap, and there are no budgetary reasons to restrain yourself, my advice is buy it right then and there, without hesitation. You’ll regret it if you don’t.
I haven’t the foggiest idea where I’ll store all of this (though using it is no problem–hello more parties!), but it was so lovely. All eight sauce dishes are different. Isn’t that wonderful?
Small platters. Just precisely what I wanted for the meze party. Just precisely what I want always. I adore dishes.
A very happy shopping experience, and very apropos. There will be mah jong this afternoon, and if I’m a sensible Kat, I’ll take pictures.
