Continuing a roll as AT readers take it offline, Enrique buttonholed Jonathan Adler last night in LA and sends in this report:

“Tonight, I drove straight from the airport to Jonathan Adler’s LA store so I could meet him, and have him sign a few goodies at his book signing event. [See LA flickr]

When I introduced myself as a poster on the AT site, he said, “Oh my gosh, you are one of the sweet ones. How come there are so many mean people on there? All I want to do is make pretty things for people’s homes!” [See… he actually does lurk on the site.]

I told him that we AT folks are pretty free with opinions on the threads, but the majority of us genuinely love and appreciate his work (and that the haters were just jealous).

He was sincerely warm and incredibly sweet. He even called me “Mary” and dropped a couple of the old-school camp references I love so much. A total doll. We love her…”
