When I was at Superstore last Friday with Madeline, the woman in front of me was packing her groceries purchases into a canvas tote bag from Trader Joe's. A feeling of envy immediately washed over me. I want to shop there, too. At least once. Really, one of the most unfair things about having the United States as a neighbour is that I hear about so many interesting-sounding places to shop that aren't available in Canada.
A Williams-Sonoma just opened up here in Calgary. There is a sign in the same mall with "Pottery Barn - Opening 2006" emblazoned on it. I have heard a rumour that Abercrombie and Fitch will be opening up a shop in Edmonton. I remember how long I waited for an Old Navy to open. Late 2002, I think. I stepped into the Williams-Sonoma store this past Saturday. I anticipate having an item or two from there on my list this holiday season :) I bought a jar of mole sauce for Chris - it's something we've never made at home.
