On the SLC bike ride, we passed this place, which I'd not seen before. Wonder whose business model they are following? Must pay them a visit...

That is does. We got a half-dozen Billy bookcases in the mid-90s, and there's not a single sagging shelf on them. Hopefully our kitchen cabinets will last as long (but not the crappy laminate countertop; it's already starting to bubble up in places--but it cost mere beans for 12 square feet).

Re: you people are f***ing freaks

i actually HATE going to ikea now, once was enough just to get what i needed when we got a place to live away from the parents. if my husband goes, he's gone for hours, and hundreds of dollars are lost when he comes back. I dont go bc i hate shopping, he's the shopper!
i think the hot dogs are great, and their cinnamon rolls too. mm!

I promised hubby he never, ever has to go to IKEA with me (and he'd just get in the way anyway, and spoil my fun!)
 
Re: you people are f***ing freaks

it's the only reason he goes to ikea, and then he insists on sitting in the car outside...

I can relate, or at least I used to be able to. We went to the opening of the store in suburban Chicago (1996 or so?), and there were over 5,000 cars in the parking lot. I got physically sick from agoraphobia, and was convinced that the building was shaking and about to collapse under the combined weight of so many hipsters. I refused to go back for another 6 months, and now I can't stay away from it. When my brother & I were in Minnesota for a week earlier this month, we drove to the one at the Mall nearly every day for its cheap meals.

My parents have some that are over 23 years old, have been dissassembled and reassembled several times, and moved cross country. They still look new. And guess what lines my living room wall?

It's sad, in a way, that most of my furniture comes from Ikea, but with the kids and the dogs... we must lower our standards somewhat.

I don't know about you, but Ikea meant a big improvement over what the Salvation Army & Goodwill decor that we had in college. And honestly, I don't care for anything fancier. I just can't look at a $2000 table without thinking, "shit, Ikea has a better, more flexible version for a tenth of that."
