The New Target in My Neighborhood


Ok, I usually don’t get excited about new Target stores opening. A Target store is a Target store, right? There’s just a couple of different floor plans but basically, it’s Target.

But I’ve never seen one like the one opening across from Brea Mall, on Birch St, before. I mean, really, this is the Robinson May of Targets. Do you know any other Targets with underground parking?



I wish I could have gotten a picture at night, so you could see the escalators. Escalators? At Target? And get this~after I took the picture, I drove by the front of the store. It doesn’t open till next Sunday, October 11 but there are little Target people getting it ready for the grand unveiling. They were pushing the red plastic carts into the lobby and I would swear, the carts have their own escalator! I saw a cart magically ascending skyward, at any rate. Makes sense, since the merchandise seems to be on the second floor. Dang, wish I could have gotten a picture of that…


Anyway, I created a sterling and crystal bracelet this week. Now I need to brush up on my picture taking skills because shiny and sparkly are hard to photograph.


The plan for this week is to do a lot of cleaning and organizing. My bathroom/studio is filled with ephemera and other mixed media stuff I’ve outgrown and it‘s putting a damper on my creativity. I recently read an article that said, when you’re cleaning, ask yourself if items you’re sorting are something the person you are now would use. I found that very interesting. We all go through phases and end up with a bunch of stuff just taking up space. Out with all this stuff that’s so 15 minutes ago!

WOW! I was in a Target today, and it was just a plain old store. That Target sounds really cool!

We've been going to the Target in Nashua, NH, they have the cart-o-lator too, it always seems out of order tho :/ But we have also just had a Target open in Lowell, a mile from the house! And as loathe as I am to buy into Corporate when my whole life is about striving for Handmade (I LOVE TARGET!) *squee!*
