Most people own no more than one or two china sets. But that doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy the beauty and artistry of other fine china patterns. Some people therefore become china collectors, preferring to own even one piece of designs they like.
My preference is to visit china shops. Sometimes I take a look at antique and consignment shops, others I visit china retail stores. I recently came across Wedgwood Juliet and Villeroy and Boch Persia Crystal at one of these places. Boy, are they stunning! My last visit to a consignment shop came up with some Edinburgh Thistle and Wedgwood Cornucopia (which happens to be an active pattern)
I love browsing wall after wall of gleaming china, crystal and flatware. Who says you have to own it to enjoy it :)?
