Yes I know, totally superfluous topic, but I can't figure out what I should do with this huge box of china that I have inherited. We do not currently own any china, and would rarely to never have an occasion to use it. We do not have a china hutch, nor any desire for one. We do, however, need more plates. Over the years our family has grown, and enough dishes have broken so that when we have family gatherings at our house, we don't have enough for everyone.
My grandmother's china is fancy and not my style - flowery with a gold band around the edge. Because of that band, you couldn't put it in the microwave (it wouldn't be a huge issue, but a minor inconvenience). I'm sure china is good quality though, so it would probably be very durable and long-lasting. To use this china everyday would be a nice remembrance of my grandmother, even though I'm not sure she would've approved!
Anyhow, my dilemma is should I use the fancy china everyday, in which case it will get well-used; OR should I put it into storage for...I'm not sure for what. Posterity? Dd? Post-children future fancy dinners?
