China…NOT from China

Pickard China

With the addition of our bridal room we searched all over to find some new pieces to introduce to the brides in our area. We picked some fun dinnerware for everyday. But, the china that got us most excited was the introduction of Pickard China. This is one of the few chinaware companies where the product is produced in America, and I’m extra proud to say it is from Illinois, the only other state I love as much as Texas! Another exciting element of this company? They make the china found at The White House, American embassies around the world, Camp David and on the tables of the top military officials. One chef who recently visited our store told us they had even done a pattern using Morse code along the rim of the Air Force china. Very cool in my estimation. When so much is produced overseas, and it is our responsibility as retailers to provide products at reasonable prices it is hard to avoid overseas production. But, one thing Becca and I both are proud of is bringing in products that are American made…this certainly qualifies as a very special American made product.
