I always thought Mikasa had over priced, over done china, but I have recently found out that I am wrong!
They do carry the ugly over designed china, but also have some nice, clean lined pieces as well!
I was surprised by the reasonable prices of their stoneware and accessories and was even more pleased with the amazing clearance prices they have.
They often have sets missing one piece that are heavily clearanced. Who needs ten candles when you are only going to use 2 at a time??
