I’ve never bought anything from the Pottery Barn but somehow I get their catalogs in the mail anyway. Here are some of the Pottery Barn offerings:
At first glance this blackboard seems to be trying a little too hard, decoratively speaking. However, when you study it for a minute you will be much more impressed. You see, this is a blackboard that is actually a huge wine shopping list and attached to it are metal bottle holders to hold the bottles of wine that correspond to the list on the blackboard. Pottery Barn calls this the Wine Tasting Library. As you can see, someone has
polished scratched off several bottles in no particular order. Genius! Your hunt for the perfect gift for that near-sighted wino in your life? Solved! It doesn’t say how much it costs. Who cares! Live! Love! Swill!
Oh, and notice on the table that Pottery Barn already has those roll bowl sustainable trees started. That Pottery Barn always thinkin’ ahead!!

Loved laughing out loud at all of your observations. Thank you for the pick me up this morning. Hysterical how absurd pottery barn is! I almost bought curtains from them once but the lady who worked there was really upset that I didn’t want two separate rods for just one curtain. It was all very confusing and I left as soon as she went to get a catalog to show me why I needed to have two ‘for layering of course’ she kept saying. weird!
Oh that is weird. two rods for one curtain. Layering huh? Good for you for sending her off to get a catalog and then leaving! That’s exactly what I would have done too! She probably gets that alot! 🙂 Linda

I’ve always thought that most people feel you haven’t “made it” in life until you get one of those sustainable bowls filled with over priced wicker balls for you coffee table totaly $159.99. I went to Ross the other day and saw pretty much the exact same bamboo bowl and wicker balls for $3.99 total. Literally the exact same stuff.
Pottery Barn bugs me.
[…] Left to its own devices, Peanuts would eat an entire cake each and every day and instead of paying bills would be out splurging on Pottery Barn sustainable wooden bowls for rolls. […]
