Once again, I head to Ikea, list in hand, excited because I hadn’t been there in awhile (a month or two). I just know that I’ll be able to find a few of the things I need. Some of these things include: a gray bedspread that doesn’t cost as much as they do in Target, a cute table runner or placemats and hopefully a chair in the As-Is section that I could gussy up for the office. Now unfortunately my new house is slightly further away from our Ikea so now it’s kind of a pain in the ass to get there, especially in Friday night rush hour traffic. But Ikea usually comes through for me, so off I went. I didn’t even walk through the showroom, I headed straight for the Marketplace, I was all business. Thirty minutes later I left. With this.
That’s it. They had nothing that appealed to me. Their bedspreads were like $50…seriously, shouldn’t they be like 30 tops at Ikea? I’m not sure they even had table runners or placemats because I wandered the textiles section to no avail. And don’t even get me started on the As-Is section. There were about 15 chairs there in various states of disarray. All of them, at their clearance price, were over $50. This is not why I came to Ikea. I came for cheaply made things at cheaply made prices. So FAIL to you Ikea, I’m very disappointed you. But hey, I saw a rainbow on the way home. Unfortunately there were no cheap bedspreads at the end of it…I checked.
