Sydney is on the verge of receiving a very large Ikea store. As it was a long weekend here, I was debating what to do. With nothing really to purchase, H and I decided to roam around the aisles of the old Ikea before the new one opens with no real goal in mind. This was probably a bad thing in retrospect, but wandering around the store provided much exercise and a lot of good bargains along the way. We bought a griddle pan, a cheap-but-expensive looking photo frame for a print of mine and some jars to store loose leaf tea.
It was much less packed in the parking lot than when I last went a few years ago. I guess the hype has died down somewhat. Although I expect it to pick up again once the new store opens in Tempe (which coincidentally is closer to me). I was highly tempted by the textiles section, but pulled myself away. I just don’t have much time to devote to craft projects these days.
