    Ugh sounds like they sold you down and feather pillows. 100% goose down pillows are great (until/unless one explodes and then you essentially must move or consent to a lifelong feather remediation).

    Can you return the pillows and go for the wheelbarrows? They sound so much more useful. And yes, this is the type of conversation that one could only have about PB. (Insert smell of Martha’s disappointment here!)

      OOOH…. well that would explain that. I was completely baffled why anyone would want the experience of having the declaration of independence signed on their face while they are sleeping.

      I have a feeling they don’t want USED pillows back.. which is probably a good thing.

    LOL I’m sure they don’t want them back but if they misled you into thinking that those were 100% down or worse charged you for 100% down and sent you one of their Down and Feather pillow inserts then they should take them back and give you a refund despite the fact that the pillows can’t be resold…

    Good luck and I’m happy you didn’t lose an eye!

    Christina is right. Down feathers are awesome and not at all poky. Also, any feather pillow that pokes you is sucky made.

      Yeah.. it’s looking what I bought was “feather down blend” WTF? Would you sell a mattress that is foam/Samurai sword blend?

    Holy crap am I glad you wrote about this…I would totally buy a “blend” because it contains the almight goose down!!! Lesson learned. Thanks to everyone else who knows better and chimed in!

      Yes, double that – thanks to those people who set me straight! Who knew there was a “heaven” pillow and a “we want to rip your face off” version. I feel like such a SILLY GOOSE. HA! Get it!
      Ok I’ll hit myself, you don’t have to.

    You can buy covers for your pillows so the feathers don’t poke through. Some poor bird had a miserable plucking experience over said pillow. 100% down pillows are a true treat…but I am allergic to them. Hope you aren’t,

    Maybe it’s some kind of new beauty trend…sleeping facial acupuncture to facilitate circulation and chi flow?

    First of all, I did not know that those little open air vessels for gourmet sea salt were called “cellars.” I, too, would have totally bought the little wheelbarrow. In fact, I may just have to go online and buy that. It always kind of creeps me out to leave anything to be ingested out, uncovered, for weeks on end. So, maybe I won’t get it.
    On another note, down pillows suck. Inevitably, the feathers weedle themselves out. If you don’t keep up on the vacuuming it looks like someone’s killing birds in your house.

      We have a pillow in the front room on the sofa that occasionally leaks a feather, so I’m inclined to agree…

    My mom and I have a fun game – she keeps buying stuff that is filled with down and I keep getting sinus infections. Then, I try and figure out whether something is down, but she has removed the tags. “Down makes the baby Jesus frown.” I’m pretty sure that’s in the bible.

      That game sounds very similar to games I play with my Mom like, “Don’t come over without calling first… HI! I’m HERE! SURPRISE!”

    UGH! I just found this blog while googling about my expensive Pottery Barn Feather Pillos, which are trying to kill me. I have ordered replacements from Target at 20% of the cost and with much better reviews! I am SO TIRED of having my back shredded every time I sit on my sofa. The feathers scratch and make me itch to boot!
