I finally decided to check out a Target store in the city. Target came in Canada this past spring, but every single review I had heard said they just weren't very good. However, I had a broken toaster on my hands so I figured it was an excuse to finally make the trek out to Target to buy a new toaster! I decided to go to the one at Victoria Park because it is a straight shot on the subway from work. I don't really like that area, having visiting it as a possibility when condo shopping and then running away as fast as I could after seeing the area. In fact, as I was leaving the subway some guy came up to me and said "I like your personality". CREEPY. I had my headphones in so I pretended I didn't hear him and hightailed it down the street. It is a very populated area, so it isn't unsafe to walk around...but ya...
Anywho, I quickly found the Target and got down to shopping! I went with really low expectations of the store, but I was actually pleasantly surprised and found many cute things that might have come home with me if I had a car/bigger home. I guess I would say Target is like a mix of Homesense and Walmart. And I love me some Homesense (but I hate the Walmart in Toronto). I will show you some of the cute stuff I found tomorrow, but today I will share what DID come home with me (spoiler alert: it was more than a toaster).
Yes, I did get a new toaster. I really wanted a colourful toaster (which U.S. Target seems to have tons of), but they only had red ones and red just isn't my colour. However, a white one is just fine by me since all my appliances are white. Plus it was like $20 and has a reheat setting, which I like since I tend to make my toast early and let it cool off because I hate runny peanut butter getting on my hands. Some mornings I get distracted and my toast gets cold! So yay to reheating toast. I need a life.
2. New Cutlery
This is the exact same cutlery I owned before. It is plastic and I find it tends to fall apart after a couple of years (this is my 3rd set!). I love this set because it hangs and I have no cutlery drawer. I was super stoked to find it since I had bought my last set in Buffalo at Target.
3. Shower Curtain!
You may be able to tell from the colour scheme of this curtain, but I am going with teal for the bathroom! It will be awhile until I have time to paint, but I didn't want to pass up this curtain. I like how it had teal and yellow, so I can tie yellow into my decor now. Teal is a hard colour to coordinate to! However, if I am being truthful, I really fell in love with this curtain:
The colours are WAY more vibrant in person (my phone is sucky). But alas, they did not have it in stock. I may check another Target in the coming weeks and see if I can find it. They have a 90 day return policy, so I can always return the teal/yellow one. They had a really nice selection of fabric shower curtains, if you need one!
I found some choice selections in the $5 DVD section! I loooove these movies, and I hope I am not alone in that! I also eyed up a full-price Pocahontas DVD for my Disney collection, but I couldn't justify paying $28 for it. Perhaps Santa reads my blog and will put it on his list for me this Christmas? I swear I have been a good girl!
