This question reminded me of a nagging problem in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”: at some point in the past, all the castle staff and livestock were turned into china, furniture, clocks, feather dusters, etc. Virtually everything we see in the castle was once a person. The “people” hold clothes in their drawers, fill the china cabinet, and even the footstool by the fire used to be a dog.
Where is all the “real” stuff? Did they dump all the real dishes in the trash and take their place in the cupboards (which seems horrifying, by the way — spending your days as one in a stack of dishes!) Is there a disused lavatory in the basement where they have hidden all the real wardrobes, footstools, etc.?
