Missoni madness at Target.  This week the discount retailer debuted its Missoni for Target product line.  Nearly 450 items from bedsheets to bikini tops created by Missoni specifically for the budget chain store were being offered.  Most items were sold out within a few hours.  It seems the best lifestyle items were snapped up by speculators looking to make a quick buck, as you can still find them at triple to 10 times the original retail price on eBay.

We went through and chose the “must have” pieces from the collection.  They aren’t available at Target right now, but we also checked around and found the price you might have to pay if you can find them elsewhere.

10. Missoni Puzzle Trays

Even boring, low brow snacks like goldfish crackers get a bit of perk up when served on the Missoni Stripe Puzzle Tray. Crafted of glazed stoneware the graduated serving trays are embellished with patterns that piece together.

Price: $19.99

Status: Out of stock online and very limited availability in stores

Priciest Auction Listing: $129.99 + $16.00 shipping

9. Missoni Floral Rug

Taking a breather from their signature stripes, the Missoni Floral Area Rug uses abstract floral patterns and punches of color. We like how the irregular edged shape and multi-level pile add a certain “sink your toes into it” look to the rug.

Price: $199.99 -$249.99

Priciest Auction Listing: We couldn’t find an auction listing for this item

8. Missoni Leather iPad Case

This folio is pretty sharp.  Featuring white pebbled leather embellished with blue toned zigzags, it’s a smart looking way to protect your tablet. Bonus. Last we checked, the Missoni Leather iPad Case was still available online at Target, but that hasn’t stopped the entrepreneurial few from offering it at an inflated price on eBay.

Price: $59.99

Status: In stock online not sold in stores

Priciest Auction Listing: $119.00 with free shipping

7. Missoni Loop Toss Pillow

Of the many throw pillows in the Missoni for Target collection,  Missoni Loop Toss Pillow is our favorite. The ribboned fabric gives it a nice festive texture.

Price: $29.99

Priciest Auction Listing: $139

6. Missoni Zigzag Umbrella

The Missoni Umbrella is the perfect perk up for a rainy day.  The signature zigzag comes in two color ways – Colore, as pictured above with brown and blue tones and Passione, featuring black and hot pink color way.

Price: $19.99

Priciest Auction Listing: $69.99 plus $9.00 shipping

5. Missoni Zigzag Bowl Trio

We imagine cooking with the Missoni Prep Bowls to be a stylish endeavor. The set features three different sized glazed stoneware bowls  with multi-color patterns.

Priciest Auction Listing: $169.99

4. Missoni Ottoman Pouf

Target offers several ottomans in the Missoni collection.  Our favorite? The Missoni Colore Pouf with a square shape,  zigzag pattern and floral piping.

Price: $79.99

Priciest Auction Listing: We couldn’t find this pouf at auction, but the pentagonal shaped pouf was listed at $167.50

3. Missoni Espresso Set

A jolt of color with your joe. The Missoni Espresso Set service for five comes with mix and match cup and saucers and storage caddy.  We love that you get five different splashes of Missoni patterns in one set.

1. Missoni for Target Sectional

We are pretty sweet on this furniture set.  The Missoni Sling Sectional would be a stylish addition to any patio our outdoor lounging area. Ringing in at under six hundred bucks seems pretty reasonable for a four piece set. Unfortunately, this item doesn’t seem to be available online, in stores or at auction.

Price: $599.99

Status: Out of stock online and not sold in stores

Priciest Auction Listing: No available listing to be found
