Preview: The Shops at Goal Take a New Approach

I’ve heard some war stories of shoppers who have braved the opening day of Target popular designer collaborations. (Dare I bring up the mayhem Missoni for Target wreaked on quiet searching strips the country above, or is it still too soon?) But Target’s upcoming capsule sets imply the corporation might have eventually figured out how to work a cooperation whilst maintaining everyone’s sanity.

The Shops at Target, opening May 6, veers away from the version employed previously of a single big-name designer and rather features goods from five handpicked boutiques throughout the country. Contained are a clothing collection in Miami luxury shop The Webster, beauty resources in Aspen’s Cos Bar and colorful sweet treats from San Francisco’s Chocolate Store. But let’s get down to brass tacks?


Privet House Placemat and Napkin – $3.99

The bulk of the home things in The Shops comes in Privet House, a Greenwich, Connecticut, store that expertly blends traditional style using a collected, chic slant. Have a peek.

Sharp chevron becomes softened by natural jute within this placemat, while two-sided napkins offer you a couple complementary options.


Privet Wire House – $24.99

I’m not certain what I’d use this wire house for, but keeping well-loved novels or other private treasures seems like a fantastic place to get started. A latch on the front makes for simple access.


Privet House Melamine Tableware – $3.49

Melamine is a summer picnic crucial, also Privet House’s cheery set looks made for simple mixing.


Privet House Galvanized Hurricanes – $24.99

With the huge size clocking in at 16 inches tall, these galvanized hurricanes would offer height and interest to your dining table or console without breaking the bank.


Privet House Galvanized Planters – $24.99

I’d use the biggest size of the galvanized planter to hold a couple topiary trees on either side of a front door. Big planters can easily drain your budget, but these are inexpensive without appearing flimsy.


Privet House Whitewashed Baskets – $34.99

I’ve seen the spitting image of these baskets selling for twice the price. I’d stock up on these as, in my experience, you can always use a lot of them around the home.


Polka Dog Bakery Dog Bowl, Food Mat, Ball and Treat Stick – $1.99

The Shops at Target will also contain wares from Polka Dog Bakery in Boston. While the majority of the selection is more geared to pups than fluffing your home, I couldn’t resist including these punchy accessories. They seem both durable and adorable, and I wouldn’t always leaving them out for everybody to see.

What exactly can you think of Target’s newest take on collaborative lines? Will you be at the local shop first thing on May 6 or are you crossing your fingers for another big-name collection in the near future?
