This is what...

A $2300.00 Rug looks like.

Now of course this is handmade and worth every penny but I am just not sure I can ever think about spending that much money on a rug. Sorry, BUT I think of it like taking $2300 in cash and taping it to the floor and walking on it, sort of unrealistic right?

Well if you have $2300 you can have this beautiful rug. You better no spill anything on it.
Web Only at Target.com






NOTE ( and this is just heresay from a reader not a confirmed story although I stand by fair treatment for women and their choice to use birth control- my blog, my opinion..):

We get emails from STT's every day, this morning we got a disturbing note that a Target pharmacy in Fenton, MO on September 30th denied birth controll pill dispensement to a shopper. I seriously hope that this is a mistake. Bible belt or not, I would punch out a pharmacist if they said "take your business elsewhere" to me.

Here is a link sent to us to ask Target to "Fill our Pills"!

  • HOLY CRAP. I have almost that same exact rug and I paid 189.00 for it. Mine is like 13x8. That is just crazy....

  • I'm so glad to see you critisizing Target as well as praising it. I was starting to think you were a rogue marketing team, creating "blogs" as another web marketing tool.

    Glad to know you're the real thing, and as obsessed as I am with Target.

    And no way am I buying this rug!

  • I think that rug is utterly dreadful! But I cannot judge anyone who would spend $2300 for it because I spent $400 on an angel figurine...that I immediately broke about 2 months later.

  • This is an outrage! I bought my rug for free from an old woman. Not a stain on it or anything, brand new. She had decided that it didn't match her home decor.

  • If you put a $2,000 rug next to a $400 rug you will clearly see the difference in quality. The fibers are MUCH denser and cushier. If the quality is there, 2,000 really is a pretty average price for a quality oriental rug. (You can get them on sale up to 70% very often)

  • Just wanted to thank you about posting the info about that MO Target not filling that person's prescription. I've worked for Target for some years and had recently been curious about this. Needless to say, I am highly disappointed and outraged. Thanks also for the link so that I can quickly voice my displeasure. I will of course be calling and writing as well.

  • As far as the birth control pill issue - in many cases like that, the customer isn't told to go elsewhere... the pharmacist KEEPS the prescription. It's especially a problem in cases of emergency contraception, when the delay caused by needing a second prescription can often mean that the customer has to get an abortion or carry an unwanted child.

    There are also laws in several states - not sure about MO - protecting pharmacists. In other words, Target probably can't fire them for this. In many cases, though, there are policies in place that a dissenting pharmacist is supposed to have someone else fill the prescription. Of course, it seems like most pharmacists who are snitty enough to refuse to fill the script are snitty enough to refuse to let anyone do it.

    My personal stance - it's not really Target's fault and there probably isn't much it can do. But anyone who became a pharmacist after 1960 has done it with the knowledge that prescription contraceptives of various types are on the market. If they have some kind of prudish religious qualm about dispensing it, they need to find new careers. They are not doctors; they are there to serve the public by filling ALL prescriptions, not just prescriptions they choose. You know that nowadays a law that would allow a pharmacist to refuse to fill a script for, say, Asian men... would be unconstitutional. So why are they allowed other selectivity when it just hurts their clients?

  • Grow up, stop b*tchin & take your pills to another pharmacy. the pansy asses @ Planned Parenthood work their magic to plead to the "less than" masses. Better yet. Go to Syria, Iran, Iraq or Afghanistan and play the cry game.

  • To Anonymous about going to Iraq....what a contradiction. If you are going to make comments like this, say it more intelligently. We live in American BECAUSE we have the right to have choices. These choices include getting birth control prescriptions filled because it is not illegal, and is my right as a woman to make this decision. If I lived in Afghanistan or Iraq, I wouldn't complain because I wouldn't have even the right to have birth control. Oh yes, and if you are going to post ridiculous comments, don't be a coward and post anonymously. Having conviction about your comments at least deserves a username on this comment section.

  • Adrienne - THANK YOU for saying what I couldn't express. :) My stunned reaction to "anonymous" was "WTF. . ?!?!?!"


    By Blogger MonkeyGurrrrrl, on Thursday, October 20, 2005  



  • It's hard to believe there are still places in America where a woman's right to healthcare are denied. I wonder if the pharmacist has the same feelings on Viagra.

  • If this continues and Target doesn't do something about it I will stop shopping there.

    As for those pharmacist they can go get themselves a job where their values are valued! They get paid to fill prescriptions if this goes against they moral values then find another job.

  • Thanks for relating the news about the pharmacist at Target in MO. not filling the birth control perscription. I'm glad to know this and I sent the letter to target on the web site link. I no longer shop at Wal-Mart because of their unfair labor practices, but if I have to give up on Target as well, I will. (And yes, I'm an old liberal feminist from way back.)

  • But I wouldn't give up on a whole company because of the action of one person. Although it may be wrong, it was one person making a choice and not a direction by the company...

    Just food for thought. Have a great weekend!

  • The thing that bothers me the most is that the pharmacists who deny a customer their birth control prescription forget that there are other uses for the pills.

    For example - I am on birth control because I have ovarian cysts, and wouldn't otherwise menstruate. The estrogen and progesterone from the birth control helps regulate the estrogen in my body, controlling the cysts, allowing me to have regular menstruation.

    People are really, really stupid and need to mind their own businesses. If you don't want to fill someone's prescription because of your own personal beliefs, quit. Now.

  • The amount stated is too much for a rug. The material may be great, but it is still a rug. No matter what, only dirts will feel its price. A lot of rugs rugs there are sold with cheap prices. Perhaps that money should be allocated for more useful things.
