The Mikasa Factory is a good place to buy gifts and other kitchen and serving items. They have a wide selection of Mikasa china, silverware, glassware and other accessories. The store carries Mikasa vases, linens, and serving pieces. At Christmas time, they will often have navity scenes and other decorative pieces. The prices are not much lower than Dillards (on most things), but they often run specials and other sales. These specials do make most things a better deal. For example, right now you can get 10% off $120 or more of glassware. Also, they have a scratch-off and I saved 40% on one item (it was 10-40%). Definitely check it out, but realize you might not always save tons of money.
