New WVU Fiesta Dinnerware at WVU Hospitals Gift Shop

A new edition to the line of West Virginia University themed Fiesta Dinnerware is now available at the WVU Hospitals Friends Gift Shop.

Creamers with a WVU 2007 Gator Bowl logo are for available $24.99 in two colors: sunflower or cobalt. 

“This has been long awaited by loyal customers of Fiestaware,” said Patricia Antion, Friends Gift Shop Manager. “As soon as we heard that WVU was going to be in the Gator Bowl, we started getting e-mails and calls.”

Antion worked with the manufacturer of Fiesta Dinnerware, Homer Laughlin China Co., in Newell, W.Va., to develop the WVU 2007 Gator Bowl logo featured on the creamers.

“It’s been a fun project and these are pieces you won’t see everywhere,” Antion said.

WVU Hospitals Friends Gift Shop will host a holiday open house Friday, Nov. 9, from 8 a.m. until 9 p.m.  Most gift and holiday items will be reduced 25 percent; however, the Fiesta Dinnerware is not included in this sale.

 Friends Gift Shop, located on the first floor of Ruby Memorial Hospital, is a non-profit organization founded in 1961 by the Friends Auxiliary of WVU Hospitals. The proceeds from the sales at Friends Gift Shop benefit the patients of WVU Hospitals.

For more information, call the Friends Gift Shop at (304) 598-4133 or visit the on-line Gift Shop at www.wvuhgift.com.
