Ten Place Settings of Lenox Brookdale China (Sold but Please Read its Story)
We are sorry you missed this fabulous set of fine china, but thought you might be interested in the story behind its purchase, which shows that you need to check out The Closet frequently for what’s new. This was a set of ten place settings of Lenox Brookdale china. Several days after it went on the floor, a woman visited The Closet on a Friday afternoon, and as she was leaving she spotted this set and recognized it as her mother’s pattern. She snapped a picture on her phone and sent it to her Mom and Dad. Her parents, married 52 years ago, had been given pieces of this pattern as wedding gifts but had never been able to fully complete the set as Lenox had discontinued the pattern. On Saturday morning Mom and Dad arrived at The Closet at opening time and finally got to complete their china set. They were glowing with happiness as they left the store. Mom told The Closet workers that she has often shopped at The Closet, and one of her finds was unique quilting squares and patterns that she used for a special camp for unwed mothers, making lovely individual quilts for their young children. What a giving person! We were glad this couple could celebrate their 52 years together with their lucky find of this china set. So remember, your next trip to The Closet may be the day you find your personal treasure, a perfect gift, or something which will help make someone else’s life happier.
