Missoni for Target a Miss??

Yesterday was the big day...Missoni was going to be available at Target! Who knew the deluge this would create on the website and stores! From what I've read, the website was down for most of the day and things were selling out very quickly. As of this morning, I was easily able to access the website, but about 90% of the items were sold out. At the stores, it was even worse...people were filling up shopping carts, fights were breaking out, things were grabbed out of other people's hands, people were knocked over so someone could grab something...total mayhem! It sounded worse than Black Friday! What I don't get is what is the big deal?!! I checked out the Missoni stuff online and wasn't super impressed...except for maybe the throw (pictured below) but other than that, I was underwhelmed.



Sadly, most of those crazed shoppers purchased stuff so that they can re-sell them on ebay at a huge increase.....you may as well buy the real deal as opposed to the Target version if you want to pay those prices! As one Twitter user commented:  "Should have called it Missoni for Target for Ebay" I will avoid the ebay auctions for the overpriced Missoni for Target items.  To be honest, I get more excited when Ikea is having a sale!

Am I the stupidest person on earth for not knowing who or what Missoni is?

Debra - I wouldn't worry about it, from what I've seen and read about the Missoni for Target collection, you are better off not knowing!

Eartha - Its nuts...stuff is selling for hundreds of dollars on ebay. Such a shame about the greed involved in these kinds of promotions. This is why I prefer to buy vintage stuff. No crowds, less hassle.
