Who the hell knew Target opens at 8am on a Sunday? Apparently, a lot more women than me, cause when I got there just after 10am, the small display of the long awaited Orla Kiely kitchen wares was already more than half empty! All the canisters were gone, no tiered trays and no linens at all.

He asked me what I wanted and off he went to find the three canisters and the tiered tray (which is even sold out online). While I waited, I grabbed a basket and added more from the linen display to my cart. I got a pear table cloth, apron, 2 chair cushions, kitchen towels and the wrap around pot holder. At last he showed up with all that I had requested and I told him he was my hero.
