Missoni for Target frenzy, day 2: Did you get yours?
Who knew Missoni was so popular with the American buying public? Not Twitter user Amzam, who Wednesday morning tweeted, "The bigger issue here? I had no idea what Missoni was until this morning."
We have a feeling that's the case for many of the newly-converted Missoni fans. And, as expected, items from the collection are already popping up for re-sale on eBay. A Missoni-adorned bike that retails for $399 at Target is already going for $950 on the online auction site while a tunic dress that sold for $54.99 is already igniting a bidding war that has pushed the price up to $127.50.
Even snarky celebs are getting in on the action. Tuesday evening "Office" actress/producer Mindy Kaling tweeted, "An enjoyable sketch is the oblivious Dad who went to @Target before work today to buy a new barbeque grill #missoni."
She got a response from "New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel, "@mindykaling - should probably be called missoni for target for eBay."
Still, we're thinking eBay might be the safest bet, if this report from @ardenrose is true:
So apparently someone at my local Target had to go to the hospital because they got trampled in a Missoni frenzy. Probably worth it.
