Yesterday, Scott (our always helpful leader of the Tech team
) passed on a link to some info that may help lessen the psychic pain suffered by those who have a lack of IKEA shopping access. As we all know, some items are available online directly...... from IKEA's website, but cost of the shipping in relation to the cost of the actual item can make it a less than attractive option in many cases. But, as this link from Kottke
explains, there is a fairly extensive collection of IKEA items available online (through other retailers/resellers) at Amazon now (including the meatball gravy mix so you can fully recreate the in-store experience at home), and some even feature free shipping for Prime subscribers.

Smart shoppers, please let us all know if you've purchased any IKEA items from Amazon - we'd love to hear how it worked out...
