I love ikea more than I love most members of my family.

That being said, why are their labels so big??

I’ve only been in one once and didn’t enjoy it though sadly, so can’t help you.

So when they get back to port they can Scandinavian!

I wanted to buy that bear, I was all geared up to buy that bear, but he was out of stock.

I’m an adult woman so I bought a massive elephant instead. My bed is 80% stuffed animals.

I like the food and the mattresses but the rest of it is junk

Had to stop visiting the Ikea food hall after I ate half a pack of their gingerbread dough as car snack on the way home.

Love IKEA. We used to get the grandparents to babysit in the evening and go there as a little date night treat.

Someone once told me that IKEA sell loads more vases in the US that in other countries because their actual cups aren’t big enough for Americans, so they drink out of vases. Not sure if that’s true, but I’m choosing to believe it is.

Not sure about the labels but I love IKEA, always have done, always a good time. Lived by one during my 1st year at university and used to go often as they discounted adult meals to £1 after 6pm, it was great

YES. I fucking love it so much. In fact, the last time I was there I was with a couple and I said “this would be a great first date” and that started another argument

I went through a phase of having to drive down to Bicester from Manchester every few weeks. I used to call in at IKEA in Birmingham to break the journey and get some food and pick up anything that was on the ‘IKEA list’
