Why Do We Lust After Pottery Barn when Target Sells the Same Brands?

Recently, I was on a scavenger hunt for champagne glasses made from this Polish glass company. After running all throughout the mall and scouring the Internet, I finally find them in Pottery Barn. Finally! So I buy them only to find a week later the same ones were sold at Target for much cheaper. Why hadn't this occurred to me before? That's when it hit me, I reserve my Target adventures for things such as fun stationary, birthday cards, a picture frame, or even holiday decorations. So, Why do we lust after Pottery Barn when Target sells the same brands?

Where did all of the circulation go?

According to the NYT, weekday subscriptions are down 2.1 percent and Sundays are down 3.1 percent. This means the printed version of the paper isn't going out to as many people as it used to. However, the people are still just as informed (if not more so) as usual. Online news feeds are the culprit! I bet you got your news online today.
