In my fantasy kitchen/cooking world, there are several stores that I could spend the rest of my life in. No, really. Like, hide out under one of the large urns so as not to be discovered and make myself at home. For forever.

Since I live smack dab in the middle of Wisconsin, I don’t get the lavish opportunity to visit any of my favored kitchen/home stores very often. But when I do leave my neck of the woods and traverse the state to Chicago, Minneapolis or even far out west to Portland (where my in-laws live), I always make a point to stop somewhere and gaze and gawk at all the things I am mentally adding to my wish list.

Among the stores that I love, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel rank right up there. So today, I’m giving away TWO $100 gift cards to your store of choice from my favorite list of three. I’ll contact the winners and they can specify to which store they’d like to receive the gift card.

To enter, leave ONE comment on this very post telling me the #1 item topping your wish list right now (even if it isn’t kitchen/cooking related).

My top wish list item (dear husband, are you reading this??) is this glass drink dispenser from Pottery Barn. Major Love. Major.

I’ll announce the winners on this post probably right around Thursday morning when my favorite and final giveaway of the series will appear. Oh, I can’t wait!

{Giveaway sponsored by me. Sad as it is to admit, none of the three stores listed above have any stinking idea who I am. I’m off to mourn that knowledge…and pore over their catalog pages to add more delicious things to my wish list.}

  43. Caitlyn says:

    Oooh, that’s so hard to choose. As a young college student, there are SO many things my apartment could use… But I’d HAVE to choose a bookshelf. If you could only SEE the mess my living room is without one… Sigh. Books are too fabulous to sit on the floor. : (

  65. Ann says:

    Williams-Sonoma has the KitchenAid Grain Mill that I’m dying to try! I completely agree with you, those are three stores I could get lost in forever…

  66. Amie says:

    Love those stores as well. I would absolutely adore a great waffle maker. My kids love waffles and when you make them it that beautiful maker from WS, it doesn’t seem like quite a chore.

  67. Laura says:

    I realized last night that I am in desperate need of an ice cream scoop… It may or may not have been because of the massive bowl of ice cream I had to use a tablespoon to dish up…. ;)

  68. Katie says:

    We’re working on remodeling the house…my number 1 is an expedit to organize the toy room, or the tools to make one…something about a pocket drill I think?

    I really, really need/want a new stand mixer. Mine is so overused, I can hear it’s joints
    groaning each time I crank it up! I live in the Chicago area so am fortunate to have access to these wonderful stores. There is a downside…I love these stores so much, I simply have to KEEP OUT! Thanks for the giveaway!

  86. Erika says:

    I would like to have a cast iron frying pan from Le Creuset. Thank you!

    Thanks for the chance!

  88. Megan says:

    Mini Pie Maker!!

  89. Hilary says:

    Either a new (larger) kitchenaid mixer or a bosch mixer – I’ve started making all of our bread and my current kitchenaid only allows me to make 2 loaves at a time. Would make it a lot easier if I could do 4, 5 or even 6 loaves at once!

  90. A real food processor! I only have a mini one that is on it’s last leg :)

    I really want a gumball machine in my kitchen.
