IKEA & The Container Store
Saturday, October 11, 2014

10.13.14  We had a ball on the trip!! Thanks for all you do to make them so much fun.   Lisa G.

We boarded our eager passengers and headed to IKEA and The Container Store in Schaumburg, Illinois.  The weather was spectacular, making it a wonderfully pleasant day.

This is quite an amazing store with beautiful coordinating room displays set up.

They still had these super bath mats for sale - one of the items on my list.  I'm using them for entry rugs.

And they still had these faucets which I loved last year - not on my list.

View from the 3rd floor.

The restaurant/cafe on IKEA's 3rd floor.

Their specialty - Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy, and ligonberry sauce.

The check-out area was pretty crazy.

One of my purchases - a beautiful orchid for only $9.99.

Some of our group took the shuttle to The Container Store.  We had some serious shoppers on this trip!  The luggage bay area of the bus just after IKEA and not all of the packages were loaded yet.

Then it was on to the Container Store.

And Home Goods. where I found my food processor - on my list.

And some of us (me) took a quick walk to Nordstrom Rack and found the cutest $99.00 knit dress for $40.00!
