The Best Dollar Store Plates

It all started with great ceramic 
Dollar Tree mugs.

While in the dollar store several years ago I found these fabulous dollar store plates

They reminded me so much of the white Emma Pottery Barn dishes I love so much.

But these were from the dollar store, $1.00 each. How good could they be? How well could they hold up?

I bought 4 mugs, if they worked out, I'd be back for the rest of the set. Well, they worked out great!

A few months later, the mugs didn't chip, didn't crack, and didn't break.

They were awesome! 

So I went back to Dollar Tree to buy the rest of the set but needless to say... they were gone!

For an entire year, I checked back on those plates. 

I even checked Dollar Tree online.

And then, one day, they were there! 

How excited was I to have found these plates?!

I bought 20 of them!

and 20 soup bowls!

They are our new everyday dishes. 

They go through the dishwasher, get thrown into the sink, and are banged around every day by teenagers.

So far... no chips and no broken dishes!

I am a plate addict and these are the best dishes I've ever owned. 

I can now downsize to these and my ironstone only! 

Goodwill here they come!

They are so beautiful that I even used them at Thanksgiving and used  DIY chargers under them which makes them look even better.

See them being used as my Easter table setting.

The dollar store.... go figure!

And by the way, it's now been 7 years and they are still in great shape. 

I still have 19 of them and I have seen them at the dollar store many times since!

Update: December 2019 I found them in my local dollar store again! I replaced the one I broke and bought 8 new cereal bowls. If you are a plate addict and you see them, grab them!

They are my go to dishes for holidays and every day!
