Yesterday, I whipped up some blueberry pancakes, got them on the table and ran out the door to check out The Shops at Target, which debuted an offering from one of my favorites, the Curiosity Shoppe. For me this stuff is way more exciting than Missoni; I've always had reservations about the quality of the designer clothing for Target. But yesterday I stood, apologetically, with a small group of like minded gals waiting for the boxes of the Curiosity Shoppe to be unpacked. My favorite things are these pretty party props ($5) with glasses, lips and mustaches, a pair of wooden arrow salad spoons, and this set of stamps in fonts looking a lot like Alexander Girard, Eames, and helvetica, something you'd never be able to cobble together on your own, especially for $10.
Also in The Shops is a housewares collection from Patch NYC. If you like vintage looking forest creatures, this is for you. I snagged this deer cookie jar in a pretty mushroom color for $29.
