big dining room table, and then we got a buffet. Now we've got the china to put put both to use! My mom's been after me to take her Royal Doulton wedding china for years [oops, turns out she didn't have wedding china; this was purchased by my mom in 1979], but until this road trip, we'd had no way of getting the service for 12 from Virginia to Illinois.
I just unpacked the dishes, which have been in storage for years--probably at least since I was in high school. And only one dish (a salad plate) was broken.
