These look like a great deal for a starter set of dishes (or if you just want some plain white ones!)
Right now on Amazon you can get the Certified International Metro 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, White, Set of 4 in white for $15.93.
It says the regular price is $7625 (which is insane) but they seem to be around $18 or $19 on most other websites and then you have to pay shipping.
These ship FREE with Amazon Super Saver Shipping.
These look like a great set of dishes if you just want some plain white ones- they do have other colors but the price goes up a bit.
If you need some flatware check out for the Gibson Cordell 20-Piece Flatware Set, Service for 4 $13.92. This would put you right over the $25 mark to get your free shipping!
As always this is Amazon- the price can change at any moment!
