The Return of Jason Wu for Target

I don’t know if this is good news or not, but Jason Wu for Target straw bags are back in stock at my local Target.  They are also quite a few pieces of clothing on the racks.   The clothes look like returns coming in one by one, the bags look like restocking since there are quite a few of them hanging on the racks.  I have to say, these poor little straw bags look abandoned, and I think they might even go to clearance.  My fellow blogger Target Addict thinks the bags are being restocked and has seen them at her local Target. The other thing that I have seen in stores is a few Wu items on the clearance racks.

On a recent Target trip I saw the above “online exclusive” dress on the clearance rack for a mere $11.00.  I couldn’t help but wonder if it was the same one I returned to the store after discovering that I looked like Aunt Bee from the Andy Griffith show.  I hope the restocking and clearance items mean that consumers are waking up to some of the quality issues here, and losing their mania for this collection.  Judging by the thousands of Jason Wu for Target items still for sale on eBay, I would say that consumers are going to hang on to their money and not pay the inflated prices. The only item I see going to high prices are the cat totes, t-shirts and scarves.  Target should’ve made more of those for cat lovers everywhere.

    Thanks for the shout out! I've also seen a few of the floral scarves restocked, but far fewer than the bags.
