The Shops at Target is a really interesting concept that's launching this Sunday. Target so eloquently describes the program as "The Shops we fell in love with, collected and curated for you". It's an ongoing collection of shops that will partner up with Target to create affordable, exclusive lines. The first run of The Shops features 5 retailers from across the country. There are close to 400 products being introduced, ranging in price from $1.00- $159.99. It's an interesting evolution for Target; a big box store that has been very successful at collaborating with admired high end designers such as Jonathan Adler, Rachel Ashwell, Dwell Studio, Missoni, and Gwen Stefani. 

Private House is a home decor store from Connecticut, founded by Richard Lambertson and Suzanne Cassano. Their store features vintage furniture, antiques, art and garden accessories. They've create a line of tableware, and home & garden accessories with Target.

Cos Bar opened it's first store in Aspen in 1976 and since then has opened 11 more locations in 8 states. They sell European purfume and luxury beauty products and for their collection with Target, they've designed a line of brushes and cosmetic bags along with bath and body products.

Sadly, I'm probably the most excited to see what The Candy Store has to offer. Founded by Brian and Diane Campbell in San Francisco, this boutique candy store has put together a collection of their most popular sweets (including a Gummy Fried Egg).

The Webster is a multi-brand fashion boutique owned by Laure Heriard Dubreuil and Milan Vukmirovic.  They are based out of Miami Beach and their merchandise of clothing accessories and photography caters to both men and women. The line of Miami inspired clothing and accessories they've created with Target will be for men, women, children and babies.

The Polka Dog Bakery (obsessed with that name) comes from Boston, Mass. They sell healthy dog treats and really cool pet accessories like bowls, collars and toys. Their Target collection will consist of baked dog treats and a line of fantastic accessories!
