Have you ever broken a piece of your china or crystal and didn't know where to buy a replacement? Ever chew up a piece of flatware or silver in the garbage disposal and need to buy a replacement? Ever try to match your grandmother's platter pattern and didn't know where to start? Well, the best place to start is REPLACEMENTS in Greensboro, N. C.

A few weeks ago I was in Greensboro and toured the Replacements facility. It is HUGE! It is the size of 7 football fields. They are the largest source for china and crystal patterns. Below is a table shot from their showroom.

They also carry Old World glass ornaments. They carry EVERY Old World glass ornament! They also stock hundreds of silver patterns, china, crystal, flatware, everyday patterns, etc.

Below are tables where clerks are gathering orders.

Their shelves are massive. They carry over 300,000 patterns and over 13.8 MILLION pieces!!!

They receive pieces from patrons every day who want to sell their patterns. They also receive overstocks from stores.

Need some Fiestaware? This is the place to find it!

Every item is tagged, logged in the computer and placed on shelves. While I was there I ordered a few replacement glasses. They brought several out for me to check and choose the ones I wanted.

They have a small museum where they show off very important pieces like the "Fancy Feast" dish.

REPLACEMENTS is a very animal friendly place and the employees are encouraged to bring their dogs to work. Outside of the breakroom you can put your dog on a chain leash while you are sipping your latte!

Here is a case full of the most popular china patterns.

The most popular crystal patterns are also displayed.

And the most popular silver patterns. Check out the Replacements website and look for your patterns or better yet, visit their facility in Greensboro, N. C.
