Missoni? Did you get any?

 If you haven't heard all the hubbub yet, here is a quick CNN story. What do you all think? Are you trying to get your hands on some of this stuff?

 

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Just one day after the launch of the Missoni for Target collection brought the retailer's web site to its knees, a secondary market for the items -- many of which sold out in a matter of hours -- has already sprung up on eBay and Craigslist.

 But shoppers eager to nab items from the limited edition of home goods, apparel and accessories better be prepared to pay a premium: The same Missoni for Target offerings on these sites are being sold for up to five times the original retail price.  

 

A Missoni for Target throw in a classic colorful zigzag pattern that retailed for $39.99 is now being offered on eBay for close to $200 and one of the most hyped offerings, a three-speed bike (also with the trademark Missoni pattern), is being sold for $1,500 on Craigslist -- four times more than the original retail price.

I couldn't see what all the fuss was about - doesn't appeal to me - would never buy it.

I don't even know who mossini is. I also think if people are stupid enough to buy a piece for $200 that was originally $39, they deserve to be ripped off.

Never heard of them.  I never saw the need to have name brand items anyway.  As long as something is good quality, what's the name matter?

I saw an article about this on The Stir. I wouldn't buy any of that clothing line. I think they are very outdated.
