This is the important post of the day. UPDATE!!!
(WTF is Blogger doing to the spacing????)
I am in dire need of any of the readers of this blog, who might find themselves conveniently situated in relation to a Pottery Barn store (or outlet) to please email me at ...
After conferring with the lovely and gracious Ms. C., the realization dawned that scoring these would take calling on a store-by-store basis. Well, we struck paydirt. While the Master Computer has all of these sold out across the fruited plain, said computer isn't, y'know, accurate. So, stores that were showing "0" actually had, say, 2 large, 2 medium, 8 small, etc. The correct number were ordered and these will be shipped to our nearest PB store.
Y'see, here's the thing. For my birthday, TFBIM went to PB and bought me SIX of the pieces seen here. For reasons which have yet to be adequately explained, she got me all six in the medium size. (The leftmost one.)
So, sensing there was something amiss by the puzzled look upon my face, she made inquiries of me and I explained that given our general sort of layout as far as serving food went, six medium of these in the medium size was not practical. More practical would be, say, 2 large, 2 medium and 2-4 small. I then proceeded to explain likely scenarios and she saw the wisdom of my views.
Only that these pieces were discontinued and our nearest PB only had -- you guessed it -- the medium.
Venturing further afield because I had also been in receipt of a Williams-Sonoma gift card and the closest W-S was in a mall that also had the next-closest PB we sallied forth. But it was lunchtime. While I suggested that we stop at the PB and effect the exchange, TFBIM was adamant we lunch first. On the way to lunch, I popped in and ascertained that all three sizes were well represented and we proceeded lunchwards.
You see where this is going, right?
Therefore, I implore you, Gentle Reader, to be on the lookout for these at your nearest PB, should that be convenient to you. Not only will I pay for the cost plus shipping, but I promise you there will be a very gratifying surprise headed your way.
Thanks in advance,
