I've had it with the Made-In-China crap that's sold at Kitchen Stuff Plus.
I had a friend over, drinking scotch out of a rocks glass from KSP. As we were sitting and talking, the bottom of his glass fell out and smashed on the floor, and I don't mean from a particularly robust cheers either. Seated, mid-sentence, his glass just fell apart. Last week a plastic cup I was washing broke in two as I was drying it.
Can anyone recommend a store downtown that's not Williams - Sonoma expensive but carries decent merchandise? Bonus points if it's made locally, or at least not in China.
