With my recent move and increase in square footage (see my last post for details) I’ve been carefully curating the right items to deck out the new place. Some old faves, but plenty of room for new!
Since I live in Target Town (Minneapolis) and find myself shopping there multiple times per week – sorry I need food. footwear. sportsbras. shampoo. cards. gifts and everything else… I’ve become quite familiar with their new Target Threshold line. As a regular Target shopper I see what they did there – give a new brand and identity to many of the design/decor products they’ve already been carrying, but somehow I’m still under the spell.
Take for instance: Purchasing a tension rod upon which to hang a shower curtain.
Plain white tension rod for $5.70 OR an oil rubbed bronze rod with decorative finials for $27.00?
I think you know what I chose…along with matching curtain rings, shelves, hooks and soap dispenser.
A brilliant marketing move.
