I live alone. i don't entertain. i need some new crockery. I don't
want Melamine and I don't want plain white. I only need a couple of
dinner plates, a couple of side plates and a couple of bowls. I do not
want a set of 4 pieces which includes a mug (I have loads of mugs.) Why
is it apparently impossible for me to buy (online) matching single
plates and bowls?

Similarly, having lost some cutlery with nice turquoise handles
(*) I would like to buy 1 or 2 4-piece cutlery sets. I think I've seen
2 such - one gold with vary narrow spoon and 1 with
hectic-multi-coloured handles.

(*) Fallen out of the drainer into the paper-recycling sack, I suspect.

IKEA? They have some very nice crockery colours now, a bit like Denby
but not so expensive.

Mike's mention of Wilko reminded me I've seen some suggestion that
Woolworth (with or without an s) may return. And I was going to say I've
seen single plates in, certainly, Morrisons, and I think ASDA (I'd be
surprised if not - they seem to have everything, such as towels).

But Jenny specified online. And I admit I haven't looked there for
crockery or cutlery. (Or anywhere else, really - I have more than I'm
likely to need, as I'm working my way through what I may have bought a
long time ago [can't remember] or inherited; I don't entertain, or if I
did would take people out. But I have come across it in Morrisons. Oh,
and I think M&S.)

Sainsbugs used to do crockery by the piece. I bought a dinner set that way
in my younger days - still have some of it left.
Some big department stores, the sort that hold wedding lists, sell place
settings, cutlery and/or crockery.

There a Range near us which has lots of very useful stuff (indeed seems
to have inherited quite a lot of the Wilko goods). They do online orders
and deliveries, I see. Worth a go?

Not keen on the Denby-style for Ikea but The Range does have some
interesting things and were have one in Wrecsam so I will try and get

We had one here. Not sure if it's still there. It had lots of things
of all kinds. Garden, pets, house, clothes, food.

Lots of good suggestions in this thread already, I see.

If you don't mind second-hand, may I add eBay as an on-line source?
IMO it's not as good as it used to be but I don't and won't use any of
the social media market places and there's still a good selection of
articles to be found on that site, often at very low initial prices
(and with practice you can often predict which ones will sell for just
the low, initial bid).

And off-line, charity shops. (Although many of them seem to have a
presence on-line too.) I often find nice things for the kitchen in
charity shops. My latest purchase was a covered, china cheese dish
which must be about one hundred years old. I've been experimenting
with keeping hard cheeses such as Cheddar, in the pantry, in the dish
where it can breathe, rather than in the fridge where it can't.

I was about to recommend Wofe's method - until you mentioned "matching".

She sometimes trawls through Ebay to see what oddments of china,
crockery & cutlery are on offer there.

These are usually the unbroken remainder of sometimes quite elaborate
(expensive) services.

She often buys (say) four side plates because she thinks the pattern is
pretty - or 4 tea cups & saucers - or...

I don't know if you could find what you want, but looking might be
entertaining in itself.

From what I've seen on Rip-Off Britain, something called Facebook
Marketplace is the home of rogues. Obviously, the nature of that prog.
is that it will mostly only report bad things, but even taking account
of that, it seems to be something I'm glad I haven't dipped into. (The
main difficulty seems to be just contacting FaceBook, or its real name

Yes, I was going to mention those - or, if you have such a venue near
you, places where house clearance agents frequent. I'm thinking of the
weekly market at Tynemouth Metro station, but I guess similar venues
exist nationwide - though I don't actually know of any others. But you
do use the word online from which I assume you're of limited mobility?

By covered I presume you mean it has a cover.

All the single ones there seem to be Denby-style, which is obviously the
"IN" thing just now. I don't do "IN"- I think the last time was when I
was the first of my acquaintances to have wedge-toed shoes, which must
have been in about 1958!

Asda & The Range definitely worth looking into, though the ones I like
at Asda are not the cheapest and come in sets of 4. I just don't have
the cupboard space for that much.

Many thanks, everyone, for the suggestions.

Years ago we had a house with a real floor height pantry with outside

Asda has singles. And their tableware is cheaper than Habitat or other
places. Their website is clunky though. In store is better.

Sir! Sir! Sir! We had one of those! The larder was floor to ceiling with a
frosted glass window, a perforated zinc covered ventilator which was
blo**dy freezing in the winters of the 1950’s and 60’s.

Well, aren't I the idiot? DON'T ANSWER THAT!

Not only had I somehow not thought of eBay until Sam's post, but also
completely forgotten I had searched there before for pieces of my
existing crockery - Royal Stafford "Apple."

So(*) I open eBay this morning and the first thing that greets me is the
information that Royal Stafford "Apple" plates are now back in stock!!
And as it turned out, not just dinner plates but side plates and bowls too.

Only snag is they are more expensive than quite nice pieces seen
elsewhere, so do I save money and start afresh with 8 pieces or replace
the 4 pieces that have cracked or broken? Decisions, decisions!

(*)It's almost compulsory to begin every sentence that way nowadays, but

My childhood home had a pantry (we called it the Larder) and a washroom
which both opened onto an enclosed "area", our house and next door
having been built as a single huge dwelling but converted to semis.
Next door was now 3 flats, occupied by members of the same family. What
fascinated me was that attached outside one of the opposite windows
(belonging to the smallest flat on the first floor) was a meat safe and
very occasionally one could see Miss Jaeger open the window to access
her food.

A cupboard with a "stable door" incorporating a shelf had been
constructed in one corner of the washroom. It must have been about 3'
or 4' square and contained the meters. When my parents first viewed the
house my father apparently observed "You could keep goats in there." It
was known ever after as the Goat Cupboard. It was a fabulous place for
playing Shop!

I'm happy if it helped, but Nick (Odell) managed to get there before me
- though I didn't manage to read his post until after sending mine.

Judging by Wofe's behaviour, it can lead to penury and a dire need for
extra cupboards.

My house was built on a very steep hill. Consequently, at the back it
looks like a normal ground floor with kitchen-diner but at the front
it is underground and what used to be the coal-cellar has now become
my pantry and dark room. It keeps cooler than any of the other rooms
but probably isn't as chill as the type of room Mike mentions and
which I remember from my infant days.
