Macy's offers the Gibson White Elements 42-Piece Dinnerware Set in several styles (Hampton Square pictured) for $37.99. Opt for in-store pickup to avoid the $9.95 shipping charge. That's $82 off list and the lowest price we could find, although we saw it for $11 less in October. Each set serves six and includes three sizes of plates and four bowl types.
