Nice. Now's the time to stock up on that kind of stuff, I guess, because a lot of it is going for dirt-cheap prices at estate sales (nobody wants granny's china anymore). In another 15-20 years, when tons of it has gone (sadly) to landfill, the pendulum will swing back and the hip young whatever-generation-after-Z kids will be buying it and driving the price back up.
You're right. I have 3 sets of silver because I'm the only one in the family that likes it and is willing to polish it. One of the places we went to yesterday had a whole set of Limoges china (not my pattern) dirt cheap. Hard to see people going crazy over 1970s crap and donating their parents' high quality stuff to Goodwill.
