Has anyone seen these? Looking for a local source for plates that have a hole on the side or in the middle to hang a wine glass. Any help appreciated.

    Received them as a gift and was told they were bought at the Royal Doulton warehouse sale. Not sure if they still carry them as they may have been on clearance.

      Am looking for the same and came across this old thread which I thought I would resurrect. I know that C&B and Pottery Barn have these, but am hoping I can find ones that are closer and/or cheaper. Ideally in a natural material (i.e. wood/bamboo), or at least not extremely fragile (i.e. not china/glass/slate). I was at 30 Bench Winery this weekend where they had wooden ones for $6 each, but alas, they were sold out!

        Peller had them also, but can't remember the price. If I recall, they were like a white melamine but not certain.

          Don't know if this option would work for you, but you can just buy the clips that attach to any plate from this Waterloo based company:

          http://www.partyclip.com/

          I ordered 3 dozen or so from then and I seem to recall the price being less than a dollar per clip.

          I've found that plates with a flat edge work best, but they do manage to work with just about any plate.

            Thanks for the tips! Unfortunately I'm looking to purchase in the Toronto area, so Peller won't be an option. I like the clip idea, however was looking for an all-in-one plate. So it looks like PB or C&B might be my safest bets still.

              Wine Establishment had them the last time I was in there.

                Try "Cry If I Want To" in Leslieville - I KNOW they have them: http://cryifiwantto.com/
                They call them stemware holder cocktail plates; they rent for $0.40pp, but you can buy them, too.

            I recently bought some from the Ashley Warehouse sale -- $7.99 for a set of four!

              I found mine at IQ Living on Danofth Ave. It was a few years ago.

                Don't laugh... but I bought a set as a gift for friends, from Sears. They were simple white ones, but nice enough to gift.
                Also, is ordering online an option? Because I'm sure Uncommon Goods would carry those dishes as well.

                I was stocking up on Xmas lights at Canadian Tire the other day and while walking thru the aisles, saw a melamine version. Maybe not as glamourous as the Crate & Barrel version, but def less expensive!

                  Bought the melamine version (various colours) at Dollarama in the summer for $2 each.

                  I've seen them around but can't think where now....I would give Crate n' Barrel a try.

                    Thanks - was trying to avoid the trip to Yorkdale but I think you are right - they do have them.
