Thank you, Target

Who knew there were DwellStudio items at Target that weren't on the website? I thought Target put everything but the kitchen sink up for sale on their website.



Correction: Target sells sinks.

Target doesn't really sell sinks. Someone else sells sinks and Target puts them for sale on their website. It seems that quite a few stores are getting into the drop shipping business, something that has been Overstock and CSN Stores' domain for quite some time (I've found both have far better communication that other drop shippers I've used, so I'm not knocking either of those).

Have you noticed all of this drop shipping bloating websites? Everyone is selling the knock of Ghost Chair or Thomas Paul pillows, it seems. I think all those extra products sometimes hide the store-specific items, like the DwellStudio line at Target. I found it pretty hard to find the DwellStudio stuff on their website and searched for a while to determine that my place mats aren't online (I was hoping to buy more). Target, Kmart, and Sears all seem to have joined the drop shipping crew.

  1. Funny, I just bought those placemats yesterday (along with adorable Dwell cloth napkins and white dotted glasses) for a relative's bridal shower and she looked unimpressed. Obviously she has no taste because I will be buying them for myself as well!

  2. Has anyone seen the Liberty of London stuff in Target yet? Can't wait to check that out, too! Tons of happy, colorful items for the house, I hope...
