Hello readers! This post comes with great joy! Since leaving London, I always had the idea of buying an IKEA franchise and starting one in SA. It never happened or was never followed through. Now a few years later I know that IKEA won’t start one in SA and as most of you know, it’s such a shame. IKEA has the best products that are affordable and practical and most of all easy to install and have in the home. It also has a very wide variety of products from kitchens to mirrors, plants to lampshades and textiles and shopping in that huge store in the UK, was always such a pleasure! You could kit out your whole house within a day if you wanted to. What was also great is that it had the DIY element attached, so your TV unit came in a box and most Londoners spent the rest of their afternoon putting their purchase together for an amazing and easy result. IKEA even have a small space selection for some truly amazing designs for your small abode.
We don’t have anything like that here in SA. Having an IKEA store would be just wonderful.
Alas, it’s not possible to shop in the big beautiful store BUT thanks to I Want That Blog, I read that a clever team of capetonions have made it possible for us saffies to get our paws on some of the IKEA’S products. It may take a few weeks to get to us, but if we REALLY wanted something from IKEA; Nevada Furniture can get it for us!! Hello … is anyone else just OVER THE MOON!!?? I have already started showing hubby the products of choice!
