Target Threshold bar cart

Here's how Target styled it for the holidays (shop the look HERE):

Target Holiday Bar Cart

If you buy/order this bar cart, make sure to inspect it carefully (especially the wheels). I ordered one online before it hit stores and had to return it due to a few defects. Two of the wheels looked like they had been broke off and glued back on. As a result, the cart didn't roll and was uneven. We exchanged it out for a cart in the store but had to swap out one good wheel from our online cart with a busted one on the store model. Long story short, check the wheels on this bad boy. The quality is definitely cheaper than other carts out there... but if you don't plan on moving it much, it should hold up nicely.

Thanks for the tip. I've had issues buying accent furniture online as well - not from Target but other stores. So often things arrive damaged or missing pieces and then they're impossible to return! So frustrating.
