We took a cafeful trip to IKEA yesterday. We are looking at a new dining room suite and also more shelving units for our storeroom, and those you cannot really buy purely online.
Our IKEA (Kungens kurva – shown above) is the second biggest in the world and always busy so we were not sure if we would be able to get in, or how safe it would be. We are avoiding all crowds at the moment, and as Sweden limits the number of people in stores, there are long queues in many places. We were early though so the store was not up to its 2000-visitor limit.
As anyone who has ever been to IKEA knows, you cannot get through without buying something that you absolutely do not need. My unnecessary purchase yesterday was this. A tiny little blue and yellow IKEA bag on a keyring. It is going to be a gift for a friend in South Africa who misses IKEA. I will also take her a big one as they are so useful!
