Portland is finally getting an IKEA! Yeah! Rumor and talks and issues and talks and flight regulations and rumor and blurbs have finally come to fruition.
IKEA is finally coming to P-town, and thus, the state of Oregon.
In our early days of co-habitating, we planned trips to the closest IKEA from Portland, in Renton, and back to buy low-cost yet stylish modern Danish home items and furniture. AdRi HATED going: too much over stimulation. Too much of everything. Too much shopping. I was always just totally in my element. Displays of how to use the items, and then area after area of places to pick up and select the your uber cool items. No windows in the whole place made the passing of time invisible: just like the trick used in casinos. But I loved those trips. No longer will I have to beg AdRi to go with me or to stop by when we're in Seattle next!
I may have to wait until 2007, but I'll wait. Yeah IKEA!
