MY DAY: First trip to IKEA

I am no longer an IKEA version.

A month or so ago, my good friend, Sue Branson, suggested we take a field trip to IKEA since I had never been to one. As part of my birthday week celebration, we met up at IKEA yesterday.

It was like being in a Disney theme park. I detest shopping with great passion, however, I was completely smitten. Everything about my experience seem to possess the Disney touch. It was so doggone impressive, and exceptionally fascinating.

The stores layout, the personnel, the innovative/creative products, and consistent detail to customer care was extraordinary. 24 hours later I am still marveling at the unique napkin holder! It was so cool.


I am quite satisfied with my purchases. For several years I’ve searched for a large area rug for my study. However the rugs I’ve always liked have been astronomically price. Yesterday, I found the perfect area rug for $139. I purchased a few other odds and ends, and my entire invoice was just under $180.

If you have never been to an IKEA store, I definitely encourage everyone to visit and IKEA at least once in their life!
