Fab Find: Baby Shower Balloons

In the Dollar Aisle at Target I found these adorable metallic script balloons. They come in "boy", "girl" and "baby" versions. And at just $5 each, you could buy several to decorate a baby shower or child's birthday party.

Hunter devolves into a small, sad display...

The Hunter for Target offerings at my local Target store has devolved into a small, sad display (as shown here). Three weeks into this collab, the special signage and dedicated floor space is gone, replaced by just the small "reminder" sign (that any returns from this collection needs to be returned within 14 days).  Every time I visit this store, the sad little collection changes, as more and more online returns trickle in. So far, the goods are still at full price (both online and in stores) but I have to wonder how much longer Target will wait until putting the leftovers on clearance.

10 Best Allergy Products At Target...

Bustle has posted a roundup of the 10 best allergy products you can buy at Target. Some are predictable, such as a handheld vacuum, faux down blanket and hypoallergenic laundry detergent. But others are a bit of a surprise, such as faux houseplants and a filtered showerhead. You can check out the full list here.

Now at Target: Magnolia Table Cookbook

As if the Fixer Upper empire isn't big enough, Target just launched a new cookbook by Joanna Gaines called “Magnolia Table”. The retailer is offering an exclusive Hearth & Hand with Magnolia edition of the book that you’ll only find at Target.

This special edition includes seven exclusive recipes, featuring delicious dishes like bacon and cheddar quiche and an open-faced grilled cheese with arugula and balsamic reduction drizzle, as well as bonus photographs and a handwritten note from Joanna.

From breakfast, lunch and dinner to small plates, snacks and desserts, there are over 100 recipes highlighting American classics and Gaines’ family favorites, as well as selections from the couple's newly opened restaurant, Magnolia Table. For a Q&A with Joanna about her inspiration for the book, check out this post on A Bullseye View.

Fab Find: $5 Beach Hats

In the Dollar Aisle at Target the other day I found these cute straw beach hats embroidered with fun messages. The one shown here had "beachy" printed on it, and I also saw one with "do not disturb" in black lettering. At just $5 each, you could get both to last you through the Summer!

Target stops production of tall Hunter boots...

Yesterday, Target announced on their corporate blog that they had halted production of the womens' tall Hunter rain boots - the ones that had been delayed and were eagerly awaited by customers. According to their statement, "We had been made aware of some production issues with the boot we created for this limited-edition collection, and wanted to take the time necessary to ensure we were offering our guests a great product at an exceptional value." And they continued "After thorough evaluation, we’ve decided not to make this item available. We’re very sorry, but the production simply didn’t meet our standards, Hunter’s standards, or the standards we want guests to have when they shop at Target."

Lest anyone fret that these sub-standard boots will end up in a landfill, Target promises they are working with a third-party to recycle them.  And according to The Recessionista, folks who did happen to find the Hunter boots on launch day in stores were unable to purchase them as the were recalled at the cash register. However, at least SOME of the tall boots must have reached shoppers hands, as a quick check of eBay shows about 40 pairs for sale (although some are actually mens and toddler sizes).
