You may have noticed in a few of my recent tables
I used these turquoise Fiesta dinner plates
from the Homer Laughlin China Company.
So today I thought I would share where I purchased
four place settings of these this Spring.
You can buy Fiesta ware a lot of places,
even Kohls carries it now I think, however,
official Fiesta Factory is in Newell, WV.
It's a long drive from Louisville to Washington DC
about nine hours if we are blessed with light (ha!) traffic
as we approach the city.
My husband and I take this trip about once a month
as we have an office in Louisville and an office in DC.
Imagine my delight when I discovered about 1/2 way
thru the trip (at exit 67) is Newell, WV!
We stopped by the outlet one trip home this Spring.
Located in a modest strip mall is a Fiesta Heaven!
They sell first quality china in every color in the rainbow.
But the real finds are in the back room
where seconds and offs are marked down.
Yummy piles of colorful dishes everywhere!
I love to support American made products.
Homer Laughlin was founded in 1871,
you can read more about their history here on their website.
And the history of Fiesta ware here.
I hope these pictures have brightened your day!
Do you have a Fiesta ware collection?
