Better get used to The Shops concept...

...because apparantly, it's here to stay awhile.  The Shops at Target concept will continue with a "phase 2" in the Fall, set to debut Sept. 9th.  That probably means no "big name" designer collabs like Missoni  for the rest of the year (although as I reported last week, Target is adding Nate Berkus to the fold for a home line later this year).

One "new shop" coming to the Bullseye is SoHo boutique Kirna Zabête.  This decade-old venture run by co-founders (and BFFs) Sarah Easley and Beth Buccini will inspire a collection of women's tops, dresses, skirts, pants, outerwear and accessories.  Another is San Francisco's The Curiosity Shoppe,  an eclectic mix of crafts, kits, books, unusual gift ideas, home décor and quirky objets d’art. Co-founders Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom will curate a 60-plus-piece collection of entertaining accessories, stationery, kitchenware, games, crafts and curiosities ranging in price from $3 (for a melamine salad plate) to $25 (for a ceramic cake stand).

Actually, I'm really happy to see a small shop like The Curiosity Shoppe get this kind of exposure to the masses. They are a hard-working twosome and have a great eye for unique details, I'm just hoping this will translate to the massive scale that Target represents. Love this store, and hope this helps them in the long run!
