oh target you disappoint me

 you've heard about it, you've read about it, you've seen the ads. it's been everywhere, social media & blogs & tv and on target's own website... the nate berkus collection at target is debuting today, october 21st, at 8 am at target stores nationwide. 

perhaps someone should have told the target stores near me. i drove to my nearest target store this morning. upon arriving i didn't see any of the items i'd seen in the online ads. i asked a clerk where the nate berkus collection items were. "nate who?" as she gazed down the hardware aisle where she was restocking items. i informed her that nate's items wouldn't be in that aisle. they'd be in home decor. 2 other clerks were just as clueless. by the time i got to the front registers, i voiced my frustration to another employee there. he said he was on it! he thought maybe there were 2 items in the back but was hot on the case.  i left frustrated. extremely frustrated.

in the parking lot, i called the next nearest target store, sure that they would be more on the ball. i asked the employee who answered the phone if the nate berkus items that were debuting in their store today were on the shelves. she told me to hold and i overheard her tell another employee that she had to take this call because she had no idea what i was asking for. they were not aware of who nate berkus was and that he had items debuting in their store today.

i drove home extremely frustrated and amazed that target's own employees did not know about this line of products debuting today.

target, i've always supported you. i like your products. i like your prices and  i know you do good things. but i expected more. you disappoint me.

on the bandwagon

i've done it... i've jumped on the bandwagon and joined instagram. you can find me here. i was following a few peoples' feeds and then had the brilliant thought that maybe i should be putting photos up too. it's easier for me than blogging right now. life has been hectic. we had a houseful of company plus a new puppy and then i traveled back to pennsylvania for a few days for a mini family reunion. between all of that and this, i'm a little weary.

so, if you'd like to keep up with me on instagram... please do.
