The "missing" Missoni items...


Have you noticed that there are several Missoni for Target items that must have been available in-stores only and not sold online? Case in point: the travel pillow and eye mask (shown here) which I've seen all over eBay, but could never find on Target.com. Likewise, a friend of mine keeps looking for the Missoni makeup brush set, but I don't think it was ever offered for sale online. Did any of you out there score any of these "store only" items?

I saw the travel mask and pillow in stores- it was very cute, but I thought a little too expensive. The make-up brushes were actually pulled from the line before it launched (according to Target Style on facebook), so they aren't available online or in stores.

I was able to snag the clothes in stores, but really bummed that the office supplies were in-store only- by the time I reached the stationary in my store, it was all gone!

I saw the travel pillow and masks at our Target, but only the zig zag design.

My friend was able to get the travel pillow at the Emeryvlle store around noontime on launch day. She also said that the next day, when she went to a different Target to return things, the lady in front of her returned a bunch of Missoni stuff! So we'll probably start to see things trickle back in store.

Clewis, thanks for the scoop on the mystery make-up brushes!

The eye mask I did see on Tuesday.

Bummer, I was hoping for the makeup brushes too. No eye masks or travel pillows at my local Target.

I think we'll start seeing returns from buyers remorse and resellers. eBay is saturated and I can't imagine someone who spent $2k just to resell will hold onto anything that's not selling. At least I hope that's the case!

How about the lamp that's in the commercial? Or is it one of the large vases converted into a lamp? None of the stationary is online. I was at my target this morning returning stuff and there were some things being returned as well as some towels being restocked. Employee told me our store is not likely to get too much restocking, as stores are given restocking according to their sales. The east coast more likely to get some. Bummed I didn't get the blanket, but I won't pay $200 for one on Ebay!

I saw the eye mask and travel pillow today. I can always go back and check if still there and pick up for you??

Gail: that's sweet of you, and I appreciate your offer! But no, I don't need the pillow nor mask. I was just surprised to see them show up on eBay as I hadn't seen them in store.

Our store still has the travel mask & a limited selection of most of the other Missoni items in stock (we're in a smallish rural town & folks here don't seem to be all that impressed with the fake Missoni items). Maybe I should buy them out & post the items on ebay!
