Default Desperately in need of help

Of those who know us the opinion is unanimous that my life would be next to meaningless without my incredible wife. Tomorrow we celebrate our anniversary and the traditional gift is made of porcelain. I have 24 hours to find something nice made out of porcelain. Can anybody point me in the right direction? Thanks

FLL… let’s leave Walmart out of this one.

Open till three o'clock today, Saturday, Ladders Thrift in Plymouth next to Rite Aid is the place to go for porcelain artistry in their Porcelain Room that is tucked away in the back on their first floor.

How about a porcelain wall plate with a silhouette of Elvis 'The King' Presley, himself, titled 'Love Me Tender.'

I can’t believe it took me 12 years to mark one of your posts with a “like”. This sounds like an awesome/perfect resource. I hope we can meet at forum fest😊

You can really surprise her: go to Frank Webb Home in Gilford and buy her a nice, new bidet.

She'll tingle after a tinkle.

If you want to go practical you could get her a new toilet?

If they're even open tomorrow, I'm sure the owner at Back Bay Antiques could find you something nice in porcelain.

Default Belleeck!

Maybe too late... nothing like waiting until the last minute!

But Belleeck Irish china/porcelain is gorgeous! You can spend as little or as much as you'd like for vases, baskets, plates, Christmas ornaments etc...

Something like this:

We have a whole Christmas tree worth of these ornaments we've collected over the years!

Congrats!

I started out with a trip to Plymouth in pursuit of the Elvis plate mentioned by FLL but I stopped a few times along the way to sell vodka and did not make it before closing. On the way back I stopped at The Nest in Meredith and found a porcelain sugar bowl and cream pitcher.

I think it bought me another year. I hope to one day give her a claw foot tub but for the time being I start my search for something made of Bronze. Let’s hope I am not asking y’all for help on April 16th, 2023.

Thank you all so much for your help. While I credit Leslie for completing me, I certainly have to give credit to this forum for keeping me together.
