Hey Jamie: Retro Dinnerware

OK Mr. Oliver.  So I have spent a gagillion dollars on a fairly comprehensive set of Retro patterned dinnerware. 

My heavy handed mother in law broke one of my big fella plates.  I am aggravated, but not alarmed, yet.  I go to replacements.com - my fallback for replacing broken pieces of china - only to discover they have no Big Fella plates in stock. Apparently, there is not a piece of Big Fella available anywhere in the US - or the UK for that matter!

Aggravating.  Very aggravating!  Why can't RW produce a supply of replacements?  Certainly people are breaking these things left and right!

Thank you for hearing my vent!

)Ellsbird, welcome to the forums....I have just looked up the plate on the internet.( don't you think that was brave of me with the plate being called 'big fella' I was a little wary of what might show up !! lol )
.and ....they were avalible for purchase at John Lewis department store. I am sure that I also saw some at Mc Arther Glan Designer Outlet in Bridgend Wales recently...so they are around.

Try www.replacements.com. I have replaced/ added to 70s to 2000s. They are very helpful.
Good luck!

PS. Tell them I sent you!

Well...tableware.co.uk did not pan out....they have the plain white line,but not the "Retro" line. Retro has a geometric pattern.

Thanks anyway!
