Ummm... in the Barony of Southron Gaard we just buy what we think we need.

OK, a bit more specifically... we have very little cooking equipment 
(though we may acquire more in future)-- just a couple of large pots and 
a few bits and pieces.  We _DO_ have lots of serving equipment-- bowls, 
platters, plates, spoons, etc.  Last time we had a big buy, I made a 
list of what I thought we needed, went to Council with my list and 
requested a budget for purchases.  Then I went shopping in several 
inexpensive places and handed the acquisitions over to the Quartermaster. 

Our Barony probably does 3-5 feasts per year, plus a 5-6 day encampment 
with a meal plan, so we get lots of use out of our stuff.
