Karen, Deb also likes to have quests when we do things like antique store wandertreks. For the longest time it was The Perfect Sideboard (for storing dish sets), but I finally messed that up by just stopping at a local Amish furniture shop and talking to the sales clerk. (Most of the furniture in this store was actually just for display; Deb found a piece that was “almost perfect but” and then we got the right finish, drawers, shelf count, etc., and ordered it for delivery later after it was built. Still cheaper than a lot of these monster pieces in the antique stores.) But now we have a place for the dishes!

Deb’s Azalea dinnerware dishes, set up for luncheon for guests. This set is one of… um, several. My wife likes dishes, and we’ve inherited a few over the years.
