Reason #1 : Some of the most fabulous dinnerware/servingware out there. I just about died seeing the plates with mushrooms on them.

Reason #2 : This wall. I knelt before it and worshipped the pie plates like I was at an altar. Those Emile Henry artisan ruffled pie dishes are my first purchase on my trip back to the store.

Reason #3 :  The brisket starter.

According to Twyla,  “It was so good, I would have put my head in the pot if I could have”.

That’s some good dang brisket, y’all.

Reason # 6 : The magic wall of sprinkles.

Those are all natural dye sprinkles with gorgeous, decadent vanillas below them. I sat here vibrating with happiness a minute or two.

Reason #7 : Williams-Sonoma carries the most incredible seasonal items. Ever.

I’m thinking of going back for the Wool of Bat tray.

Reason #8: Le Creuset in Aubergine.

Hold me.

Reason #9 : One word. Weck.

Reason #10 : The Poisson line of pasta dishes and serving trays.

I am in some serious lust with these dishes. I have been keeping my eye out for dishes with fishes and it’s very hard to find non-tacky ones. These are gorgeous and on my Christmas list.

I’d like to thank the great team from Williams-Sonoma for having me out last night to preview the store, what a great time that was!  I was so excited to attend and I wasn’t let down at all! They invited some of the most fun gals in town, what a great time we had looking at all the shiny things!

A couple of the awesome Edmonton food gals that  I attended the preview with have also written up lovely posts about it, so to see even MORE  pictures visit Lillian at Beyond Umami and Michelle at The Tiffin Box.

The store opens tomorrow morning at West Edmonton Mall and do they ever have fun things in store! Local chefs will be there, food demos will be taking place and best of all…

..the cash registers will be working.

    Have time to go for a little shopping spree there tomorrow. I have a couple of hours in the afternoon and am quite shopping deprived. Dad will have company in the pm so I have some free time!:)V

  2. Pam says

    I am gonna live there as well. Thanks for the preview!!!


  3. Marla Forman says

    Maybe we should go together – maybe take us more seriously if we show up with sleeping bags.

  4. The Kitchen Magpie says

    HAHA AWESOME! By the way, they wouldn’t let me sleep in there. I also don’t think they thought I was serious about it.

  5. Marla Forman says

    I just want to go there and roll around in a naked euphoria, but then they wouldn’t let me back in so that wouldn’t be good either.

  6. The Kitchen Magpie says

    OH, it’s INSANE. Jeez, I didn’t even get to the 19th century reclaimed wood on my post that had us hot and bothered!

  7. markyeg says

    @KitchenMagpie I’m not wealthy enough to shop there but if I were, I’d go on a shopping spree there and Bombay Co.

    • KitchenMagpie says

      @markyeg Oh, I know! I have a wish list I will work on slowly! I just need to win the lotto.

      • markyeg says

        @KitchenMagpie me too, there’s a few things at restoration hardware I’d get too! 🙂

  8. debhammacher says

    @KitchenMagpie I love Williams-Sonoma & have shopped there for years, but actually prefer Crate & Barrel. But am very glad one is here!

    • KitchenMagpie says

      @debhammacher I love Crate & Barrel too, but the lines are so different that I see myself spending too much. At both.yikes.

      • debhammacher says

        @kitchenmagpie So true. Both are dangerous. maybe part-time work for product?
