thats one of her carts! they are lined up at the check-out register! i'm planning on going to a different target than the one pictured tonight. if there's nothing left, than i'll purchase groceries instead!

i'm really hoping that the "extreme couponing" culture will actually make store managers think twice about letting people clear out the racks like this. stores are starting to take notice of this behaviour in the US. people will literally buy 20 of one item just because they can get a good deal on it.

I don't see why they just didn't put a restriction on the amount of each item like H&M does.

wow, get a load of this line!


Well, that was fast. Both the Targets in East Harlem and on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn have been stripped of the Missoni collaboration, according to Twitter reports. @debrashriver estimated over 200 shoppers waiting at 7:30am for the Harlem location to open. (Among them was former Real Housewife Bethenny Frankel.) The collection there sold out in about 15 minutes, while @petitemaoiste says the racks at the Brooklyn location were emptied in about ten.

I'm guessing none of the other Target collections have caused quite such a commotion then?

i've never had a problem buying target's designer items before in stores. i have been buying items from their designer collaborations since 2001. everything was stocked and re-stocked before. sure, there were people waiting outside for the proenza schouler, rodarte and mcqueen & liberty stuff - but they werent buying a hundred items. and the mulberry for target items were re-stocked and sold for 50% off...

but for some of the home design collaborations people were buying ENTIRE stocks wiping out the whole thing instantly like they did for orla kiely.

unfortunately poverty levels in the US are up, and this makes some people feel the need to hoard and re-sell for tax free income.

there might also been organized shoplifting rings at work here.

so i think its a perfect storm really..(a confluence of all these factors)

its unfortunate for the rest of us normal reasonable people...

Damn...I'm glad I ordered my two dresses online at 6:30 this morning. No rush, no technical difficulties.

Jesus, I was planning to go tomorrow. Hopefully they'll restock and there is a Target in the Bronx that I will check out if I need to! I only want the home items!

I'm undecided whether to just order the 9 out of 15 items in my shopping cart that are still available or if I should just wait for Target to re-stock everything. If they re-stock it would definitely be cheaper for me to just place one order but if they don't re-stock and the other things I want sell out too I'd be heartbroken.

All those reports of people filling 3 carts with stuff and just going berserk in stores really turn me off

why not just purchase real missoni home? Decking my home out in Ikea and Crate & Barrel doesn't sound appealing if I was some kind of socialite.

But for me myself, being somewhat poor. I would loved some bedding, a rug, and some interesting cups. But i fear the cups would lose their look in less than a years time...

I'm so disappointed. I've had this date circled on my calendar for a few months.
I left at 6:15am this morning so that I could get to work early and pick up a few things and it's now 2pm and the site is still down for me. Unfortunately I don't have one of those jobs where I can sit at the computer.
When it was sporadically working (and holy crap was it SLOW!) I managed to get the five items I really wanted (the glass bowl and throw blanket were already sold out) and when I went to checkout, it crashed and I lost everything in my cart. When I went back to put the items I wanted in there, they were already sold out.
Frustrating to say the least. (There is no Target here, so online is the only option). I'm so mad I'm like .... "forget it I don't want anything now!" I hear a baby onesie has already been listed on eBay for $124.99
Are you guys sure everything will be restocked online? I'm thinking I should just let the mania die down and try again tomorrow night or next week or something.

Everyone's Target Missoni stores are pretty funny. Yeah - I'm curious as to why Frankel doesn't buy the regular Missoni line, too.

Anyway, I managed to snag some things from my local Target. Of course, if I had been back in my hometown of Brooklyn, New York, I wouldn't have gotten a thing! But where I'm living now, the population is smaller and neighborhoods are more spread out. I did find out that there was a Missoni line waiting outside before the store opened. I got there around 3pm and some of the best stuff was gone. None of the signature style cardigans were left. But I managed to get these

I went to two different Targets this afternoon by my neighborhood thinking I'll probably find a few things here and there, but boy did I thought wrong. Every Missoni items were wiped clean. I couldn't even get the mug I wanted, let alone those throws. Had no idea SO many people are Missoni lovers. But who am I kidding, they're probably all gonna end up on eBay

Arrived at my local target's opening time. Six or seven people had lined up, which was quite surprising for around here. But...erm, that was all. Hehe.

Snagged a cardigan, the multicolored zigzag dress, flats, and some decorative boxes. Also ordered more organizational stuff online after coming home...thankfully by that time there was a break for the website and my stuff was still in my cart.

Thank god I wasn't after the textile/home stuff, because it seems that was the big draw!
