Melamine plates from Target


With a two year old in the house the need for some melamine dinnerware has become a simple fact of life. I'm normally a big fan of melamine, it's cheap and can be very attractive. At least I thought it was cheap. Looking around at some of the "modern" examples from Jonathan Adler, French Bull and even Pop Ink show prices upwards of $9 for one plate. I admit they are all really good looking plates, but is it too much to ask for a simple plate for a messy two year old that doesn't cost over $5? Luckily while I was at Target on Monday we were able to score some decent looking plates. They may not be as hip as some, but the price was right.

Melamine plates from Target, set of 4 for $15.

Anyone know any other cheap but hip melamineware?

Please excuse me while I pay some bills...
