OK, I googled and there are a gazillion sites out there. Does anyone have any experience with any of them? I want to get a couple serving pieces for the Spode.

what you want.

Definitely go to eBay and search for your item. You may be surprised at what is out there! There are other auction sites, too. Prices can vary dramatically on items, too...

I did break down once and go to Replacements for a really obscure piece that took over 2 years and never showed on eBay. If you have the spare bucks, Replacements is nice but they are robbing you.Be sure you measure, some old pieces have changed the size of things.There are other tips for shopping eBay, like checking shipping and handling prices, insuring and being aware of good feedback ( you virgin).

Then there's sniping and sniping programs for when you get serious.

I've been known to keep an eagle eye on an auction and do some final second bidding but never heard of programing my bids when I was not online at the end of an auction. I just bid as high as I really want to go - got some nice dishware on eBay over the years (I've been doing eBay for 9 years and 3 months)...

Yat china at the grocery store. Chinet is cheap. Juju had the audacity to criticize my styrofoam plates when she requested a "paper" plate. Excuse the flying crap out of me. I'm afraid I bought one of those humongous packs of plates for a family picnic one year, and now I'm still trying to use them up.

Seriously, I seldom use my Adams' Azalea (shame on me...give me an idea for Easter), so I don't have to look for replacements. Although I would like to get extra pieces. When I bought the set, they did not also advertise it was on sale because they were discontinuing the pattern! Miscreants!

I can, of course, find pieces through Replacements and I get their email bulletins regularly, but I just can't justify their prices.

You can have 3 freebies a week if you sign up for Hammersnipe. http://hammersnipe.auctionstealer.com/home.cfm It will automatically bid for you seconds before the auction end. If you want a program on your computer- BUT your computer must be on so it can send the signal to bid- try Bid O Matic. http://sourceforge.net/projects/bom/ It's a German program and you have to download a few different files to get it all but it works like a dream. If you want to bid on several auctions for the same thing( say there are 3 Spode dishes you want, you can group them and it will stop bidding if you win one.

but, I don't bid that often and leave my wins to the fates, most of the time.
