I hate you, Bill Sonoma

File under: Uncategorized

When Pat and I registered for our wedding, we registered at Willams-Sonoma, at my dad’s request. I have a bit of a conflict of interest with that store. While I do thoroughly enjoy the products from there, I think it’s pretty ridiculous how overpriced things are there. I’m not going to lie to you; I’m like the Frugal Gourmet, of stuff, which makes me…just plain frugal. So anyway, when we registered there, I had my eye on these super cute juice glasses with roosters on them. No one got them for our wedding, so I used money we got from gift certificates to buy them. We also registered for juice glasses from Target, which we did receive as a gift. I would just like to mention that none of the six Target glasses have broken, but two of the six Williams-Sonoma glasses have broken. Admittedly, the W-S glasses do get a little more action, but still. If I recall, the Target glasses were under $10 and the W-S glasses were $26.

It’s official: I hate Bill Sonoma. Here's a picture of a guy named Bill that I want to use to illustrate my hatred.

Don’t get me wrong though. I will still gladly accept gifts from there. Heh.

Over and out.

My thoughts exactly, brette.

I think that thinner glass is more expensive. Thus, more expensive glasses break more easily.

I WAS going to get you those glasses for your wedding, but as I rushed through the Carousel Center mere hours before your wedding, I was disappointed to find that they didn't have them in stock, and was WAY too late to go mall hopping. I was truly bummed about the situation; but think it's pretty funny that they've come up again, years later.

Bill, what can I say? That stupid hat, mustache, and cocky grin make you easy to hate. I had to do it.

I don't appreciate you using my pic to illustrate your hatred!!!

Fran,

I have those same glasses. I got the for X-mas a few years ago. I HAD to have them. They are still on the box I got them in. I've never used them. But you can't have any.
