Get that cool antique store/flea market vibe without spending hours combing through old Army boots and Kewpie dolls by setting the table with Thomas Paul Gothic Dinner Plates. ($36) They look like fine china, but are actually sturdy melamine, so you don't have to fear for the life of your plates every time your friend brings their manic toddler over. We love that each plate is different, but still coordinates for a trendy black-and-white collage effect.
