Well I’m sure you are happy to know that my extremely important issue with Pottery Barn has been a bit mollified with a fun little “easter egg” discovery on the Pottery Barn Kids website. I was helping a customer in the store look for something online and I happened to come across this:
Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Coincidence? When I saw this I thought to myself: “Wouldn’t it be funny if Pleasant had that put in the catalogue because she knew my mom LOVES plaid? Wait, does she even know my mom likes plaid?” Pleaseant—a more aptly named person I do not know—is a friend of mine from high school and is now a buyer for Pottery Barn Kids. I know that in the past she has used the names of friends’ kids for the children’s merchandise and so I sent her this:
Me: Just so you know… in my head the plaid “Roberts” tree skirt on the pb kids website is your doing. You know, because I’m sure you know about my mom’s obsession.
Pleasant: Totally was!!! Did you notice the Dawson [another Crockett family] in there too?? :)
How cool is that!!! I told two of my managers and their collective eye-rolls of disbelief could put even Liz Lemon to shame.
I don’t got nothin’ to prove to you Jenny/Brian!
So although Pottery Barn may not get music so much, they definitely got my mom… which I guess in the long run is better :) THANKS, PLEASANT!!
(And no, Jan, I can’t make requests so don’t ask! lol)
