    Ok, so not exactly cooking, but certainly related. :Cool:

    For years, we've had a full set of Tesco's Lemon Tree crockeryin the vans ...........

    It's getting a bit tired now and we'd like to replace it with something similar.
    We want something of sensible weight, got to be heavy enough to stand knocks but light enough not to batter the payload.
    Of similar, ie patterned, design.
    Trouble is, the fashion at the mo seems to be plain white built like a brick wall & weighs a ton!

    Anyone know a good place to look at lots of designs? We're in Cheshire and the "boss" has decreed we're going up to Boundary Mill at weekend!:Doh::BigGrin:
    Anywhere else we should think of?

    ps. If anyone mentions Melamine I'll get me shotgun out!:Angry::Rofl1:

    Why not have a look in Cheshire Oaks Retail Outlet, just off the M53 at Ellesmere Port thats not to far away for you. You can get a site map from their website. Just Google Cheshire Oaks.

    Well id be looking in Tkmaxx first , as its my favourite shop . Though they dont often do full sets. They do plenty lovely china cups though.
    So if its a full set that your after I'd probably try BHS , Ikea tend to be very modern and a bit solid.
    If you want nice china , and dont mind paying a bit more for it, Peter Jones do some nice sets too.
