Missoni returns are starting to trickle in...
...which allowed me to score two of these Missoni for Target etched-glass wine tumblers at the Sunnyvale Target store this morning. I also saw two of the martini glasses, which were lovely but I didn't need so I passed on them. I can always use more wine glasses; martini glasses, not so much. My husband (who was with me) joked that I should have bought them to sell on eBay, to which I shot him a dirty look. I will not join those eBay trolls!
Other than that, all I saw was a few lingerie pieces and two pairs of tights out of the package (???!) hanging where the Missoni womens' wear would normally be. A few of you have written in to say that you've seen returns start to show up at your local stores, too. I think the returns we're seeing now are due to legitimate "buyer's remorse", by people who overbought for themsleves. Give it a couple of weeks and the eBay scum who don't get the prices they'd hope from online sales will start returning their stuff as well.
