At our wedding, we got a box of dishes without a card or any identifying information. They weren't off our registry, definately not something that was my style. In fact, I thought that maybe they were left at our venue by a previous wedding.
Approximately 9 months later, a mutual friend of ours admitted that he purchased the dishes at a Kroger on the way to our wedding. mystery solved.... (however, I must wonder, who stops at Kroger on the way to a wedding to pick up a gift, and why did he choose the dishes over say, a giftcard?)
Since we moved to Greenville, these dishes have been in the guestroom closet, just waiting for a new home...I had sort of forgotten about them, since they were under some other boxes of stuff. Last night I did some cleaning of that closet, and discovered the dishes. I had a perfect plan- Patrick is going to help a high school friend move to his first apartment this weekend and I just knew that he would be able to use the dishes. Alas, my plan was foiled when he told us that people had already given him dishes.
I am giving up. If anybody is interested in these dishes- you are welcome to them. We'll even bring them to the Atlanta or LaFayette area next weekend!
Otherwise they are going to the goodwill.
