This 5 piece setting retails for $335. Not in my budget! You can often find it slightly cheaper on some websites, often around the $270 mark. Not willing to pay this, I resorted to the bargain shoppers best friend...the EBay Saved Search. If there is a particular item you are looking for, this is often the best way to find it at a better price.
Due to the EBay Saved Search I got my first full set for $120. It arrived this week and is even more beautiful in person. The delicate quality is amazing!
I do have a word of warning for this method, it may take patience. This is a rare pattern and I only get email hits every few months. But, even if it takes several years, I'll feel satisfied knowing I got such a beautiful product at a price I could afford!
If you have any other tips on finding great deals on china, crystal or silver, please share!
