The Lenox Butterfly Meadow line of dinnerware and tableware is one of Lenox’s most popular designs. The company promo describes it as:
“Based on the artistry of Louise Le Luyer, Butterfly Meadow china dinnerware features monarchs, tiger swallowtails, orange sulfurs, other winged species, and even dragonflies.”
But serious collectors and people that appreciate outstanding quality and design are already familiar with the Butterfly Meadow line. They already know the light and colorful atmosphere it brings to any table setting. What they want is the best selections to choose from, and the cheapest prices available.

But what do you find after hours of searching? ebay has the best price and selection almost 9 times out of 10!
Here is an example:
This 18pc Lenox China set, (above), has a suggested retail price of $304.99 – but nobody ever pays that!
The Lenox site sells it for $149.99, (currently out of stock), and Amazon has it for $147.18.

So Why Buy From ebay
ebay has changed, a lot! Today’s ebay isn’t like the “fleamarket” ebay of it’s early years. In their effort to become the Net’s largest and safest online market place they instituted several new programs designed to assure the buyer of a safe and satisfying buying experience.
Now their Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee even includes original shipping cost!
As mentioned, ebay had over 1100 Lenox listings when this was written, but Lenox sellers are adding new Lenox Dinnerware and plates listings every day, so there is always something new for you to pick from.
