my ikea online shopping cart
i'm always a fan of ikea's limited edition series.
it drives me crazy that you can't buy them online, but that's because i live on a mountain and the closest ikea is 2 hours away.
add a carsick baby to the mix and that really curbs my urge to shop.
it also makes me grumpy (i hate not being able to go).
i'm a big fan of their online shopping feature, now that they've got the shipping costs down to 10 francs. my last order (above) was very basic.
probably surely would have spent more than the shipping costs by grabbing random objects i didn't really need, had i gone (so i will take advantage of this feature until they figure out it's probably bad for their sales).
anyways i like what they did with their latest series.
it focuses on the women workers that produced the items.
i think that's very worthwhile and i would be happy to support this kind of initiative.
it would be nice if retail tried to connect the people making the product to the people buying them.
i think even for the most conscious consumer it makes a big difference to put a face on things.
