IKEA opened in the Boston area and I decided I had to try it out this evening. What a trip! It is enormous, larger even than the new IKEA store in Philadelphia. It was packed. There were security people directing traffic from two blocks away. And this at 7 on a Saturday night.
I took notes for a couple of needs in my new apartment, but I wasn’t able to find shades for the ceiling‐fan lights with bare bulbs. I did pick up two boxes of those wonderful oat crisps with a chocolate layer, some crispbread, black currant preserves, and a tin of ansjovis for making janssons frestelse.
