I may or may not have woken up early today and dragged my two roomies to Target. We arrived at promptly 7:30 and waited in line with about 10 people for the door to open. By the time the clock was about to strike 8:00 AM, the line had grown to nearly 50 people. The doors opened and panic ensued. It was very comical and I am very glad I experienced it. Needless to say in less than 10 minutes every single item that had something to do with Missoni was off the shelves..cleared out.
When at work today, I found this article about the situation and was glad that I chose to physically go to the store and not wait to purchase online. The store spoken about in the above article was the actual store I went to. See the lady in the blue sweater at the bottom of the article (or below)? Yeah she was a HOARDER. I am pretty sure she was just going to sell everything on eBay. She wanted it all no matter size, color, anything.
There she is..the hoarder.
I would love to show you what I bought (flats, scarf, dress and cardigan) but as stated in the article the Target website is STILL down.
If anyone is concerned about not getting a piece of the treasured pie fear not, they restock, which I learned during the following embarrassing conversation with the check out dude:
Me – So the shelves are empty..do you restock or were we the lucky ones?
Check Out Dude: Well we get 3 truckloads everyday. We don’t know what is going to be on it but we will be getting more product in.
Me – So more Missoni will be on the shelves tomorrow?
Check Out Dude – Correct and more will be arriving through October.
Me – So there was really no reason for us to rush out here, wait in and line and make fools of ourselves?
Check Out Dude – You said it, not me.
Whatever, it was still super entertaining. I had never been to a store before it opened and waited in line for a product. If you haven’t, I highly recommend it, it’s a very funny experience. I will try to take pictures of my pieces tonight and upload them since Target.com is not cooperating.
—- UPDATE —-
So when I got home today I decided to snap pics of the 4 pieces I purchases. Did any of you snag some of the coveted Missoni??
I’m pretty obsessed with everything. Can I wear it all at once, pretty please?!
Also – still can’t get the skirt out of my mind..might have to venture back.
Things that make me happy today:
1. New nail polish
2. Missoni for Target
3. Green Tea
