Not Martha


scan of the dishes from the Feb/Mar 2005 Budget Living magazine.

update: Thanks to those who wrote in! I have enough people to do two complete swaps but I’m going to leave this post up for posterity — or something like that.

I really like the Essential Home Chromotherapy dish sets from Kmart – you can see the reds and greens online. However, they are sold in sets of 16 pieces all in the same color group — four each of mugs, bowls, salad plates and dinner plates. What I’d like is one place setting of each color (blues, reds, greens and oranges), but I’m not willing to buy four complete sets which would leave me with 64 pieces — 16 bowls, 16 mugs, etc. So, I’m looking for three other people in the Seattle area who are interested in the same dishes. This is the plan, we each buy one complete set of the dishes, then get together and swap so we each end up with four place settings, each in a different color group. The dish sets sell for around $25 each.

This would also work if one other person wanted to get a total of eight place settings. We would each buy two sets of dishes and swap colors, each ending up with two place settings of each color group. Total cost per person would be around $50.
