Missoni for Target Selling at Crazy-High Prices on Craigslist

Shoes, bags, and dresses going for as much as $300—will you buy?

By: Sarah Zlotnick

Tuesday saw mass hysteria at local Target stores. The limited edition Missoni clothing, accessories, and home goods collections debuted and sold out at many locations within the first hour, and the stock is almost completely wiped out on Target’s Web site. But shoppers still depressed about missing out have another chance at scoring the loot—it’s going for as much as $300 on Craigslist.

A quick search through the online marketplace turns up several Missoni posts. In Bowie, the asking price for knit pajama pants (originally 39.99) is $130. A Manassas post is offering a $170 suitcase for $275. These black-and-white laptop cases are going for more than Marc by Marc Jacobs cases, and $39 pumps can be had for $100 right here.

We personally think this is nuts, but know that sometimes, when shopping fever strikes, the only cure is to shell out. Will you be buying? Tell us in the poll below.
