Pottery Barn Greek Collection

pbteen.com now has a Greek selection of merchandise!

Here's the link for those interested. I think I was starting to drool a little bit when I opened it...until I saw the price of the hair accessory storage!

I don't really see much point in having letters on my makeup storage, but the letter-less versions are *perfect* ... I suddenly inexplicably need them!

AGREED

I don't need any of that, and I already promised my sister I'd buy her a Lily print item. Sorry PB!

No, the target customer is a parent who will be begged to buy these by her college student.

Gamma Phi Supersoft Throw = WANT

This is one item that isn't grossly overpriced. Overpriced, yes, but not nearly as bad as the decals or the makeup organizers.

I actually didn't think the wall decals were too terribly priced. Back in the day, our house had rooms with anywhere from 2 - 5 girls in them - I know my roommate and I would have gladly split the cost of a set of decals for our wall. I suspect we wouldn't have been the only ones.

I like the towel wrap, but those can be had from anywhere and embroidered on the cheap.

I was really amped about the decals and would love to order them, until I realized the price listed is PER LETTER. No thanks!!

I do love that they have all 26 NPCs to choose from, though. Those of us in the smaller orgs are frequently frustrated by the lack of selection on some sites.

Wait, $49 *per letter*? Aw, hell no!

This does make it an opportune time to be a 2 letter chapter, but no - that's insane.

Agreed that it's nice to see all 26 represented.

Pottery barn always makes me think of the friends episode when Rachel buys the apothecary table front there but lies about it to Phoebe b/c Phoebe hates anything mass-produced.

OK, I'll admit it.

I am a recovering PBTeen-aholic. When I was younger, I would spend hours pouring over the catalogue (which google chrome sees as a mispelling? apparently catalogues are obsolete or I can't spell?) and make wish lists for my dream bedroom that I could never afford. I LOVED their stuff, and they were one of the first companies to make teenage-appropriate but still sophisticated products.

If they weren't so expensive I would own half of the catalogue by now. *goes off to research cheaper alternatives because now I want wall decals soooo bad*
