7 Liberty of London Target





Ok, I have to say I was a little bit disappointed in the Liberty of London items at Target. Some of the clothes and bedding were so cute, but the fabrics and cuts were so wrong. I think sometimes they underestimate Target shoppers, I would be willing to pay more for these items if they were made of nicer materials, and I'm guessing other people would too. 

I did end up picking up some of the black, white, and yellow dishwear.  The nesting bowls are ceramic, but  I really wish they would stop doing the dinnerwear in melamine.

What did you think? Pick up anything good?

i got some of the clothing -- a couple dresses and a top -- and i didn't find the fabric as horrifying as everyone else. though i keep reading how everyone else was so disappointed in fabric quality and i generally am really picky about quality, so i hope i'm not fooling myself and going to look much worse in my new items than i think :)

i also got a couple planters, one of the canisters, and one of the black and white plates like you have, but i got it to use as a little tray on my dresser. i also ordered a pair of the hot pink lamp shades but am not at all certain whether i'll keep them. what i really wanted and had been obsessed with ever since i first saw it was the bicycle, but once i saw the $120 shipping price (which is more than half the price of the bike) i got cold feet and sat on it, which i now regret since it's sold out.

anyway, i definitely got caught up in the frenzy, and i am really pleased with what i got, but like most things target, i wouldn't want my whole house or wardrobe made of the line.

Boo Melamine.

But they are ADORABLE!

I totally agree! I was really hoping that all the dishes were going to be ceramic, I wanted new dishes. Instead we got new cereal/snack bowls for the girls, love the black and white with the yellow inside and the scalloped edges.
I have a friend who's going to take the little plate and the bigger plate, glue them together and make a clock out of it for her kitchen. Cute right? You don't always have to use dishes for eating.
but I agree, they underestimated out taste level as consumers. The only other thing I picked up was a little romper for my 3 year old, so cute.

I'm so with you on the melamine thing. What's up with that? I got there way too late - there was hardly anything left. I got a candle, a frame and a bra (surprisingly decently made).

some of the clothing looked cute but they were out of most of it at the store closest to me.

i 100% agree on the melamine. I'd be more apt to buy plates (glass, ceramic, etc) that would go with my every day china and could be used at dinner parties, etc.

i felt the same way. all of it was cute, but nothing really screamed at me enough to purchase anything! sad. maybe i should visit another target that has more items...

i bought some of the gardening gloves. and was real excited when I saw the gardening trowel set.... but upon close inspection saw how cheaply made they were that I put them back. It looked like they wrapped thin printed paper around the handles then mod podged them on. I'm not big on prints as far as clothing goes so I didn't go there. The canisters and bins were tempting but I was in the middle of paying for a wedding so I held myself back.....
