Let me count the ways.
1. It’s cheerful.
2. It’s sturdy.
3. It’s American-made in West Virginia – and has been since 1936.
4. It’s affordable and available nearly everywhere. It goes on sale all the time at department stores like Macy’s, JCPenney and Kohl’s. For special pieces, that are less common – like bud vases and different sized dishes – shop hometown specialty shops. If you life in Mile High, visit Peppercorn in Boulder on Pearl Street. You’ll swoon at all the colors and their incredible display.
5. There are so many pieces that will make you smile.
6. It will remind you of simpler times.
I started my collection a few years back, when I decided that I couldn’t wait to be dating or engaged to have nice dishes. Momma and I talked on the phone and a few days before my birthday a box arrived from Macys.com with four place settings. I now have settings for 10 and a few other accessories – like a vase and pitcher.
When C and I got engaged, I wondered if he would want a different sort of everyday dishes after we got married. He said he loved the Fiestaware. I knew we were made for each other.
You’ll be happy every morning when you reach into your cabinet for a cereal bowl. It’s like sunshine.
