The Shops at Target return for fall.

Earlier this week, collections that are a collaboration between Target and independents across the country became available in stores and online at The lowdown on goods for the home:

The Curiosity Shoppe at Target. Established in 2007 by couple Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom, The Curiosity Shoppe is located in San Francisco’s Mission District. It’s a source for fun, creative home accessories, gifts, crafts and games. The Curiosity Shoppe at Target collection features about 60 items from kitchenware and decorative pillows to novelty pieces such as stationery and masks. Prices range from $3 to $25.

Patch NYC at Target. In 1997, designers Don Carney and John Ross opened Patch NYC in New York. After closing the store and moving, Carney and Ross reopened Patch NYC in 2010 in Boston, where they offer a selection of art, home décor and candles. Patch NYC at Target includes nearly 50 items, priced from $10 to $120, for those looking to incorporate vintage-inspired pieces influenced by nature. The collection features barware, bedding and tableware.

The Shops at Target began in May with summer collections from Privet House of Connecticut, Polka Dog Barkery of Boston and The Candy Store of San Francisco.
