How to Find the BEST Deals at Target Not only is Target one of my favorite stores for day-to-day purchases, it is one of my favorite stores in which to look for bargains.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: This story was the SECOND one I did rounding up mid mod sofas. Read our even more expansive THIRD update (done in April 2013) - 216 affordable mid century style sofas from 30 manufacturers. However, I am leaving this story up - because it contains reader comments that may be of use if you are in shopping and researching mode.
I'm a simple gal with a simple dream: transforming the drab into the fab with an arsenal of paintbrushes, primer and power tools. I completely reject the notion that second hand is second class. I shop thrift stores, flea markets, antique stores, and Craigslist with an eye for transforming and repurposing found objects.
