Orla Kiely for Target RESTOCK

Back a couple of months ago, when I was blogging about the Orla Kiely for Target collection with every third breath, I got an email from Target Heaven, or from their PR firm, which is probably right next to Target Heaven. A very nice lady offered me details on dates and which products were rolling out when. So the other day I had a hunch, or heard somewhere, that there would be one more restock of the dishes and kitchen things, and I emailed her back for more info. She says, "We have heard that there should be some additional stock of the decorative home and dishware in stores next week." I urged her to call me on the red phone if any other intel emerges.

So there you have it. If you haven't gotten your fill, maybe check it out next week. I am hoping that this means that an online order I placed back in freaking February may soon be fulfilled. They keep emailing me asking for my "approval" to keep the order open longer. Grummph. This was a wedding gift, and the bride is now an old married lady. (Kidding, V!)

Some folks still have the dishes in their stores anyway. Cassie picked up some adorable mugs this week. Two of the ones she found are back ordered for me. My store still has the floor mats and the chair cushions, surprisingly. A couple of months ago, a set of 4 of those was selling for $100 on eBay, even thought they're only $14.95 apiece retail. I might go back in for some of the orange flower pattern, which I only got a tray in the first time around, and which has really grown on me.

I offer you this info, make of it what you will. I assure you that I am not obsessed and have many other things in my life maybe. xoxoxo--B

Well perhaps this means this new stock will be in my store by Christmas. Pfffff.

They had lots 'n lots of mugs at my Target when I was there... do you need any? And by need I mean NEED?

I'm pretty sure you're obsessed, there's no other way to spin it. Now how can I convince my husband that our perfectly good (and trendy) dishes need replacing?

You've got more going on than shopping? Wow. Where do you find the time??

Keely said...

Oooh, you're "in the know". I'm totally jealous! Maybe they'll, y'know, send you samples next time.

Michele said...

Yeah, your right, you are not obsessed (nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Could you have your husband talk to my husband cause I really want new dishes.

Amy said...

You're not obsessed--you just have a life that is Orla-accessorized!

I do find it interesting however, that none of these trendy things have posted their way to your sister in Australia.

Gee, that Orla K stuff is pop-you-lar! I'm so undisciplined at Target that I have to call ahead to ask them to put my "stuff" in the customer service shelf. I run in and back out, as fast as I can. Otherwise . . . I'd get locked in, and spend the night at the store.
