Today was the day! I woke up and ran over to Target a few minutes before opening so I could pick up a few of the Missoni pieces *right* when they went on sale. I was startled to get out of my car and see a Jaguar parked next to me. Um, can’t remember the last time I saw a Jag in the Target parking lot. Then as I approached the door I noticed the line. It was only 10-15 people deep, but still… a line?
As the doors opened, I headed straight for home goods because I didn’t want any clothes, just a rug, towel, blanket and one bowl for me, please. When I got to the bedding department, I witnessed a woman sweeping the entire contents of one shelf into her cart. Um, hi. There are like 8 of us here. Can we be civil and look it over?
From there it got kinda crazy. People realized that we were amongst eBay shoppers, so they started grabbing anything Missoni, then once their cart was full they would move to another area to evaluate the goods and see if they wanted it. You know what it was like? It was like Mood on Project Runway.
Anyway, I got everything I came for except the blanket, but I had a good friend shopping at the store in Woodbury, and she picked it up for me. GOOD FRIEND. On my way home, I stopped at another Target to see if they had any tights or other stuff that I missed out on seeing, but that Target was sold out of everything as well. And then I got home and I heard the Target website was down. Holy cow, was this a frenzy or what?
The photo is of the small bowl that I bought for myself. In the background is a “votive dish” that I plan on storing my makeup brushes in. I hear they are going to be restocking the stores again soon. Better get there early, kids.
