I am a sucker for places like Williams-Sonoma and Crate and Barrell. I love browsing through their catalogues and roaming the aisles of their stores and I always have a very long wish list of coveted items I do not necessarily need or have room for in my kitchen but desire nonetheless. Currently topping the charts are items such as these and these and of course this. But I also look longingly at items such as this and these.
This post isn't meant to be a loud hint for my upcoming birthday. Rather, it is a response to this article which claims I should be able to stock my entire kitchen with everything I need for $300 total - far, far less starting from scratch than the total of my short list of luxury wants. While I think I may have a Saturday adventure coming up exploring restaurant supply stores in the City, I don't think that will cure me of my desire to have bright yellow melamine bowls like these.
