Steal or Splurge?

7 Jun

I’ve been eyeing this adorable fruit basket at Anthropologie for some time now.

I came very close to purchasing it a couple weeks ago, but the baby needed to be nursed and I got distracted and never went back to it.  But on a recent trip to Target, I wandered into the seasonal aisle and found a ridiculously similar product.  In book the Target version is superior for three reasons:

1.  It’s plastic.  I have three boys…enough said.  While the Anthro version is beautiful, it wouldn’t last a week at my house.  Although plastic, the Target fruit basket has all the same details, right down to the grainy surface that mimics the original, paper version.

2.  It’s crazy cheaper.  The Anthro basket will set you back $20.  At Target, not only will it only cost you $5, but you actually get two–small and large!

3.  You have about 4 summer time inspired colors to choose from.

Since it’s a seasonal item, you better run out and get yours right away!
