Let's Dish

PFS found these at an estate sale last week.  For $20.  A diverse, mismatched collection of china, mostly Haviland/Limoge patterns.  I didn't count the total number, just many, many things.  I discarded the chipped or cracked things and am left with plenty.  I plan to use the saucers (few cups with them) as plates at parties.
 The dinner plates as everyday stuff.
 Disregard that price!  As I said, all for $20.
Now where to store them.
