Missoni Madness

Was it crazy at your Target? I didn't get there until 9:30 and things were about wiped out. I only got a candle (not the colors I wanted) and some votives. By some horrible mistake (meaning they got there before me), someone got my shoes...

Size 7

My candle in blue...



And my throw.
I would be most grateful if these items could be returned to me in a timely manner. What? You think I should check online? I would but the Target website crashed..twice.

I asked the cashier that checked me out if it had been a crazy morning and she said her first three customers spent $2400, $1700 and $800 all on Missoni items. I bet one of them has my stuff!!!

Did you go?
Did you get anything?

  1. went. they said there was a line out the door at 8. You make me laugh, Sissy. I got some journals and a box. Not really what I wanted. I wanted the throw. And the sweaters and skirts that were going to make me look like the young, good-looking girls on the commercials. And the towels. Very disappointing.

  2. Okay, don't kill me, but I had that throw in my basket in my Target near Nashville, but put it back because I didn't know where I would use it. If I had only known I would've bought it for you. It was crazy here too. I got there at 8:40, and our store was looking pretty picked over. I did get the ballet flats but not in that color. At my store they just had those for the girls. Mine are the purple colorway.

  4. That is crazy. I should have went to my Target to see if anything was left but was afraid I would be disappointed.

  5. Perhaps you are fortunate you did not get the throw or shoes. I understand they were poorly made off shore, unlike the beautiful Missoni pieces which are made in Italy.

  6. It is crazy what the Missoni for Target items are going for on ebay! Target was not prepared for the rollout. I tried to buy online yesterday morning with no success bc the entire Target website crashed. I went to my store at about 1pm and scored a towel that I plan to use as a beach towel and a pair of the ballet flats. I'm not sure if I am going to keep the shoes bc they run wide. They are cute though. I wanted a throw too, but my store was wiped out of what little merchandise they actually received.

  7. I didnt have the chance to go, however my sister who is 1 hour away said it was Madness. She said women were just grabbing thing with full carts already.

    She got some boxes, and a nice woman gave her a 2 tier tray!

    She said the 2 women in front of her at check out both spent of $2000 each, she believes that they are ebay sellers.

    Wow...who knew it would be such a big deal!

    I do like the flats, I'll head out maybe Friday and see what my Target looks like here.

  8. I have the shoes in a 7 1/2 and will be selling them on ebay as soon as I get the store up and running. They do run a bit big though.

  9. Totally crazy. Glad I'm not the craziest nut out there. All I wanted was a sweater! :)

    We're talking bare shelves. As much as I love Missoni at Target.. Really? Over $1000?!

  10. Sad thing is...I think people bought it to resell it at higher pries on e-bay. I hate that. Kinda ruins it for everyone else. I am not a huge Missoni fan myself....to ziggy and zaggy for me. I did a similar post today. Hope you can find your shoes. I think they'd look great on you.

  14. Obviously we don't have a Target in Dubai but we do have a Missoni so I was anxious to see what the items would be like. Target website doesn't ship here so I was one of those annoying people that humoured the eBay sellers yesterday and bought a tote (luckily I got in early so I didn't pay through the nose). I would have loved the throw as well but they were selling for ridiculous money on eBay!

  15. The candles seems to made for a perfect dating experience. And whoever spent so much on Missoni do know how good their products are.

  16. Wiped out here, too. I wanted the throw and a sweater. Nothing left but some plastic cups and melamine plates and a few children's items.
    Disappointing. ; (

  17. Hard to believe buy there's no Target chain in Canada but that hasn't stopped me from reading about every blogger out there who missed out on the Missoni stock!!! Last year's disappointment, the lack of Liberty Print stuff. So I ask you, doesn't Target get that there's lots of fabulous American ladies who like the combo of a deal + style? What gives?!!

  18. I've had fun reading about everyones experiences! I did not go to Target, nor did I try to get anything on-line. Am I missing out?
