I have had this plate hanger up since Christmas. Sans plates. I took my red snowflake plates down in January, and had nothing to replace them with. I have been looking for regular plates ever since with no avail. FINALLY found some last week at Target. And they aren't glass, even though they look like it. I thought they were until I picked them up. They are melamine. Awesome..cheaper and more durable for what I needed them for. So for less than 10 bucks, I finally filled up my plate display.
