What a great idea: selling remainders of kitschy, custom-designed china left over from yesteryear. Ever wanted a dish that really says "Blue Plate Special"? Or how about a mug with the terse logo "Cup o' Joe to Go"? The store is Browse Heaven, and prices on its American industrial china are low enough. The store's own designs are equally wonderful, especially its series with the New York skyline. Other items for sale include basic vintage and retro-inspired flatware, heavy crockery bowls, and classic restaurant-supply glassware, such as soda-fountain and pint glasses, that can be hard to find in regular stores.
