When you don't have one of these nearby, but see one on a road trip, it's hard
to resist a quick stop.
We did just that last week on the way home from the airport and our appointments
with US Customs and Border Protection to apply for Global Entry.
Furnishing departments were definitely geared up for 'Back to School' and
I must say IKEA really knows what young people love to have in their personal
space. Prices are affordable and design is always cutting edge.
However, many items require construction skills as they come flat-packed.
Don't know if I have the patience these days. . . . . . .and crawling around on hard
floors while trying to put things together kills the old knees!
Building furniture is a job for the young.
(Pardon the wrinkled linen pants - not the best for sitting in the car but
oh so cool on these 100 degree days).
We bought a few kitchen items, white bowls, wooden spoons, napkins, towels.
Then we headed to the food court where we stocked up on Swedish delicacies we
enjoy - cookies, crackers, dill sauce, and decided to try their coffee - will give you
my opinion once I've opened and brewed.
I could spend an entire day just taking photos in IKEA.
Do you like to shop there?
