  • Melanie says:

    As mentioned earlier, it’s usually a good idea to keep your porcelain collectibles or china stored behind glass, this way you won’t have to dust them as often and handling them less will reduce the potential of chips or breaks on the actual figurine.

    However, I’ve found that the situation does dictate what silverware we use, the formality of the dinnerware does not always reflect how “nice” the meal actually is. You will also need to consider finding your dishes in alternative places such as overstock and close out items as well as thrift store finds.

    Jai Maa Durga
