(I’m just going to pretend it hasn’t been 3 weeks since I last posted…..)
For those of you that know me (or are faithful readers from way back), you know I love Target. I mean seriously head-over-heals-can’t-live-without love. But we all feel the same way about Tar-jay so no need to go on.
You probably know that I also love Paul Frank. For those who don’t know him, he’s the guy that created this guy, Julius:
A little over 10 years ago while visiting L.A., I found myself in a hip little shop off Melrose Avenue and found this cute little blue coin purse with this adorable monkey face on it. I bought it and proceeded to become obsessed with all things Paul Frank and thanks to eBay, started a mad collection. But as much as I love my online ordering, going to a Paul Frank store or even finding PF goods at Nordstrom or Newbury Comics was sheer bliss. It’s always better to see stuff in person, right?
SO, imagine my surprise when I walked into Target yesterday and saw this:
JULIUS in TARGET!!
Now I can just walk into my favorite store on earth and browse one of my favorite designers right here in my ‘hood. It appears to be slowly rolling out. The Target I was at yesterday only had things for little girls. But it looks like more kids and infant stuff is rolling out as well as some jammies for me and some bags, umbrellas, bikes, and I’m sure more surprises.
And the best part? It’s Target prices. The $25 kids shirts are now $7.99.
I can hardly stand it. If you need me, I think you know where I’ll be….
