Whew, I think i’ve seen it all. Williams Sonoma is now carrying chicken coops!!! Whaaa??!
And beehives. Wow. Some kind of sea change is happening out there that people think there’s enough interest and moola behind this “agrarian” urge. Their new line is called agrarian and it’s available at some stores. It is no cheap friends. The funniest thing is a roll of hardware cloth 25′ long for 59.95!! It’s called predator control kit for your coop. Guess it is hard these days to find an old fashioned place that sells this stuff, but really if you look hard enough you can find it at home depot. For WAY cheaper.
They are also selling plants. A tiny rosemary for 12.95. Cute burlap package though. And some apple trees. This makes me sad–they’re selling golden and red delicious??! Guess their market wizards said that they should stick to recognizable things. Interesting times–can’t believe the big retailers are trying to cash in on this. Kind of cool, but I don’t see how it’s going to work!
