I just purchased 2 sets from the store and love the way they look. They are very organic looking. They have all the elements of earth, water and stone. They came packaged extremely well and not one of the dishes or mugs was damaged. Have not really used them yet but so far I am extremely pleased. Even the lady behind me in line commented on how "earthy" they looked. This is exactly what I was looking for.
I ordered four sets of four of these mugs. 12 of the 16 mugs had significant scratching. I tried to exchange the scratched mugs for non-defective mugs, something Target apparently cannot do. Eventually got 12 new mugs shipped to me. They are also scratched up. I will be returning all of them.
Unless you're either willing to buy brand new mugs that are scratched up or you're willing to buy and sort through multiple boxes of these to find some that are not, don't bother.
