shop talk: pottery barn is coming to edmonton!

Our fair city is becoming quite the retail magnet: Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie, J. Crew, Simons, Target and now Pottery Barn. Yup, PB (and its kitchenware sister Williams Sonoma) are set to open in West Edmonton Mall this fall.

According to the Edmonton Journal, the new PB will be 15,000 square feet chockfull of upscale home decor heaven.  The Williams-Sonoma store will be about half that size and carry everything a cooking aficionado would ever need or want.

I like to pop in to PB whenever I visit Chinook Centre in Calgary. On my last trip, I picked up this handsome guy. My favourite glass pitcher had recently cracked (boo!) and I needed a replacement. The handsome guy's classic clean lines appealed to me and at just $30, my pocketbook didn't turn itself inside out when I went to pay. He'll be put to very good use this summer when I make this delish drink.

So, I guess this news means road trips to Calgary will be no more. Ha! Who am I kidding? There’ll always be a reason to hit up Calgary for some retail therapy.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Yoga retreat pics will be up tomorrow.

Dajana (:

p.s. I'm really diggin' this ikat dot organic sheet set. What's on your PB wishlist?


  1.'re so lucky Dajana. I long for a PB to arrive in The Peg. Sigh...someday, perhaps?!

    1. PB's opening is another reason for you to come and visit Christine and me. Those retail (and food) reasons are really starting to pile up. (:

      Happy Friday, Amy!
