Missoni MIA

I was pretty flippin' excited when I saw that Missoni was doing a collection for Targét.

It turns out I wasn’t the only one looking forward to it.

I checked out their website yesterday and this is what the home decor section looked like:




*Sigh* Missoni's candy-coated swag had been all snapped up :(

An ad on the site read, "Missoni for Target is here...better shop fast."

Like rubbing salt in a wound.

I was hoping they'd restock soon so that  I could get my hands on this:



This...



And these to brighten up a rainy day...

But then I decided to do a little research, and it turns out they don't plan on restocking.  More sad face.

CTV had a interesting story about the stampedes at Target stores when the line was launched on Tuesday.  Turns out their website crashed several times throughout the day.  You can read the story here.

As with many hot ticket items, you can now find them on Ebay for grossly inflated prices.  The zig zag throw above was originally a very reasonable $39.99 at Target and is now going for $158.50 at the latest bid. 

Still...it's a heck of a deal compared with Missoni's normal prices.
