  1. I love ikea! Such great items, and totally affordable! Great great post, thank you :)

  2. You are just so excited Jil because it will be close to you! :) The closest IKEA to me is about 2 hours away!

  3. At least you can use their e-shop. I like shopping there, but I also appreciate their green approach. In this respect they are really pioneers in Canada.

  4. I'm about 1 1/2 hours away from the closest IKEA, but I'm often on-line looking at their items. They are having a media night a few days ahead of time, so I'll get a sneak peek at their new store. I didn't realize they only have 11 stores in Canada! And you're right David, their new store will be very eco-friendly, it's a step in the right direction.

  5. Great post Jil! And great job loading up on goods at IKEA!!


I just can't wait to hear what you have to say!
