We’re firm believers that everything tastes better outside. So we really like having designated plates for doing so. A recent discovery is vintage Ingrid plates, from Chicago, which is very similar to Heller, which we also love (and wrote about here.) One more thing to obsess over on Etsy and eBay. Someone write in asking about the issue of BPA in melamine plates, and the best article I could find, from Mothering, basically said they are find as long as you don’t put them in the microwave.
