my boyfriend and i had a HORRible experience with ikea delivery in new york (and for the record, i love ikea -- their design concepts and very fair prices -- so i was not biased against them at all). to make a very long story relatively short, we ordered a bunch of stuff, the biggest part of our order being a big sectional sofa. we got everything else but the sofa when the delivery company brought our order. the next TWO MONTHS involved us calling ikea, us calling the delivery company, everyone promising to get back to us and never calling back, the delivery co. blaming ikea, ikea blaming the delivery co., and what was supposed to take two weeks wound up taking 8. we got an ikea couch in large part because of the promised fast delivery time -- we had a party coming up and wanted the sofa by that date.

I was so excited for the Target bodegas -- I even left my home in Brooklyn, in the rain, yesterday to go check one out. I was supremely disappointed. What sounded like a cool, exciting concept was very poorly executed. It WAS the same exact stuff they've had on Target shelves for months. There was a whole row of paper plates and napkins. A whole long row! Granted, they were fancily decorated, but I don't understand the point. There were lawn ornaments. There were towels. Grey and white and blue towels. At regular prices. The bodega was as picked over as my regular Target store in Brooklyn. It was a waste of my Metrocard rides and time.

I've passed this book tent in Williamsburg many times, and even stopped to browse a few times, but I had NO IDEA there was a whole warehouse of vintage furniture behind it! How exciting!
