Missoni for Target Launched Today

Did you make it to Target today for the new Missoni line? Well, if you haven't, don't bother to go. Most stores are sold out. Yes SOLD OUT!!!

Ok. I think I have to admit that I am a Target-a-holic.

So, I went this morning to our local Target to look at the line. I didn't really know what I thought of it. I didn't really like the line in the commercials and felt that the patterns were a bit too busy. But, as things happen, kind of like at Disney, I got caught up. It's prettier in person. I wouldn't go head to toe Missoni, but a cute pair of flats with jeans and a white tee works for me.

Anyhow, when I got to our local Target the racks were looking a bit empty. There was, maybe, one to two items of each thing left. I picked up a sweater in my size, the last one, and thought I would just hang on to it while I shopped.

As I walked down a bit I saw these two shopping carts full of Missoni merchandise with a Target employee standing next to it. I also noticed a customer shopping in the vicinity. I asked the employee if she was putting the merchandising out, thinking that would explain the empty racks "they just hadn't gotten everything put out yet", but, oh no, the other customer was buying the two shopping carts full of merchandise.

So here is what I came away with
A dress, sweater, and shoes for me.
A tunic, skirt, and socks for my little lady.
And two mugs.
Birthday money!

When I got home today I just wanted to take a look see on Ebay to see what was up. The items are already being listed and for more than double what I paid. What is going on? If I decide the pattern is too much for me I think I can at least make a profit by selling on Ebay. Part of me even wishes that I had bought more just so that I could sell it.

I also did a Google search for "Missoni for Target" and found that the Target server crashed this morning due to the demand of shoppers and that stores across the country sold out by 9am. What a rude awakening for those that were going to go shopping on their lunch break!

It was fun today but how crazy!!



  1. An hour ago I checked EBAY and there were about 10 things listed. Now there are 10 pages. If you happened to have bought suitcases, you'll make a mint. Wishing I had bought more, I am!!!!!

  2. How crazy is that? I came home from Target with a few things in hand but man I wish I would have bought more! :) Love those mugs!
