Best Place to Buy China and Flatware as a Twentysomething (2008)

Fishs Eddy

For well-nigh every young adult, the sad day eventually arrives when paper plates, plastic forks, and souvenir mugs from one's alma mater no longer suffice. Upon that fateful hour, fly to Fishs Eddy for its distinctive and reasonably priced selection of place settings, pie servers, and pasta plates galore. It has serving dishes rescued from the Taku Glacier lodge in Juneau, Alaska, platters from the Range Steakhouse, Glo-Tan bowls, and bubble-glass milk bottles. In addition to vintage items, Fishs stocks its own line of dinner plates adorned with scenes of the Manhattan skylines, polka dots, or cartoony portraits, and also sells Cynthia Rowley's playful stab at dishware—a collection rimmed with hats and shoes in girly-girl brights. Bring on the dinner parties.
