Most people who have been around for any length of time will likely have heard of fine china (fancy china, not the stuff that lands on your table) but what about those of us who are not so well heeled? The good news is that there are many stylish, functional, and reasonably priced sets out there to choose from. Whether you have a budget in the hundreds or thousands, there is a style of dishware for you. The trick is to narrow down the choices and not get sidetracked by trendy fads. Choosing the right one for you will help you avoid regrets down the road, and the most important step is to pick a style of china that complements your personal preferences and lifestyle.
