So what? But I do have a secret love/hate relationship with Ikea. I hate the fact that it's so mass produced and people just rave over it but I HATE, with a passion, the fact that you purchase the furniture 'flat pack' and put it together yourself. I have no talent or skills for that whatsoever. Same as putting jigsaw puzzles together. I hate that as well.
We were lucky enough to find a Billy bookcase system on ebay for around $400 which comprised a bookcase combined cupboard, display cabinet for my husband's model car collection, corner unit and end shelf system for knick knacks. It's still hasn't got everything in it that I would like but I'm getting there.
But here a few of the things that I've bought in the past and would like to buy, for no reason whatsoever.
|RAJTAN Spice jar - $3.49 for 4|
I use these to store all my spices.
|TROFAST Storage Combination - Retails for $175 but can pick up second hand for less than half that.|
The best invention for toy storage.
|DUKTIG 10 piece children's coffee/tea set $19.99|
A really cute set for any little girl (or boy) but imagine those cups filled with mousse,
puddings, fresh fruit or ice cream sundaes?
|STINN silicone oven glove only $4.99 - comes also in blue and red|
|LILLABO 20 piece basic wooden train set only $19.99|
We bought one of these for our son nearly 4 years ago and he still plays with it.
