Missoni for Target Haul

Holy smokes! Did anyone else fight the mob this morning? Ha ha ha. I knew that this would have been big. So big in fact that I forwent extra sleep and waited for Target doors to open at 8 a.m. this morning. Driving there I was almost driven off the road by some fashionable 20 something. That should have sent up a red flag right there, that this wouldn't be a regular shopping day. 

As I walked up to the doors, 5 minutes before opening there were all ready 15 people there. Pretty good odds right? I should have just went in with out grabbing a cart. It was such a frenzy and I can see how people can get caught up and just grab everything they see. Good thing that I had a wish list in mind. 

1. Throw

2. Scarf

3. Luggage Tote

4. Shower Curtain

I know that Missoni is known for their knits and that the clothing would just fly off the racks. For some reason my heart just wasn't leaning towards the dresses, skirts, cardigans, and wraps. I wanted the housewares and accessories. 

This one shopper attacked the display that held all the bedding. I kid you not, she did a sweep and took everything. There was two other shoppers there at the same time and barely got away with a couple of things. I was so bummed that I didn't get the throw. I was able to score the scarf and luggage tote at the same store. Store employees told me to try the stores in the lower income communities. Great tip. 

I tried one other store this morning and was able to purchase the double sided shower curtain. To tell you the truth I've been with out one for years. I'm that picky :) So glad that I held out for the Missoni one, as it matches everything. 

The spoils of my labor:


  1. Can you believe the scarves were actually silk? I was only able to get the one design!! And votive holders? Those must have been sold out before I even got there. Go check out eBay - you'll be sorry you didn't just grab and go too. Some of that stuff if going for 4x it's selling price. I didn't even THINK to buy extra. :)


  2. Good scores! You did better than others that I have seen so far. It sounds like it mad chaos at Target!

  3. Jenn of the Suburb Experiment- I know that not one Target carries the whole collection. It's a shame that people buy the goods to turn around and sell it at a higher price on eBay. That's probably what the sweepers intention was this morning. I'm happy with what I was able to get my hands on. darn if I'm every going to get rid of it :)

    Style Journey- Thanks, I was able to get most of the things I wanted. I knew it would be mad after reading how fast the pop up shop sold out in NY.

    Thanks for commenting. Hope you're having a good day. xx- Albee

  4. Looks like some great finds!! Target is supposed to be coming to Canada soon and I can't wait!!


  5. Glad you scored a few things. I went in this morning and everything was gone! It was nuts! I didn't get there til 9:30am though. I was able to get a few things online though. So that was nice.

  6. Claire- I'm glad that you were able to snag a few items. From what I hear you are one of the lucky ones. Can't wait to see you debut them on a post :)

    Lupe of LoveofFashion22- I wish I could have scoped out the stores today. There still was a few items in stock. I had to work, so oh well. I'm just happy that I was able to score a few things.Ha ha, twitter? I have a very addictive personality when it comes to tech. If it was up to me I would never disconnect. Twitter would be a horrible thing for me, ha ha.

    oomph- I can't wait to see what you were able to purchase.
