Getting Lost in the Land of Ikea

I always find something to buy at Ikea. The glasses were $6.99 for six. The towels were $1.99 each.

The first Ikea store I visited was in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s. It was a novel experience. We left our toddler daughter in the childcare area while we roamed the cavernous store. Later, we had dinner together in the store’s cafeteria with its distinctive food reflecting the store’s Swedish origin. I’ve been a fan ever since.
