The Shops at Target: Round 2

Well, they have done it again… Target has announced the new fall “Shops at Target“. This time its MUCH more eclectic, random, and well lets just say, I’m curious to see how they do this time.

You never know… these shops could be a huge hit- something totally different for Target that people have been waiting for… not me, but maybe other people???

I will try to be as unbiased as possible…

And now… the Fall 2012 Shops at Target!

First up: Patch NYC

This shop is a tiny little shop from the east coast. The owners boast of all their items having a “story”… definitely a fun concept and something we don’t see that often. (at least in the big box super center hub of the country- the midwest)

Owl bookends, $24.99

Lots of outdoor decor…

Cake plate, $25.00

hmm… not so sure about these…

Next up: The Curiosity Shop

The name is quite appropriate for the product. A bunch of randomness… that makes me, for one, curious. There are a few cute things.

Cute and quirky paper products… cards made out of wood, natural paper boxes…

no comment

I’m trying to think how I would include these into a design… I’ve got nothin…

Ok ok… let’s try the 3rd shop: Odin New York

This definitely is a trendy men’s shop, but actually the pieces aren’t too bad. Definitely a step up from the typical men’s line at Target, so this is kind of refreshing. You be the judge:

And the final shop: Kirna Zabete

Once again a NYC fashion boutique graces the floors of Target. I was hoping the women’s line would be better than last time, but I’m sorry to say from what I’ve seen once again I am not too excited 🙁 I’m holding onto the hope that maybe there will be things that look better in person then they do photographed???

wishful thinking?

Good idea… but lips on the bag? Can’t we tone anything down???

Well, there is no hiding it… not too excited about these new shops coming this fall. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised, but I’m not getting my hopes up.

What do you think? I would love to hear your opinions on these things, especially once we can see them in person starting September 9th.
