IKEA: the mothership calls!

OMG, my Life Candy peeps, November 28th is a BIG day for the thrifty yet stylish denizens of Winnipeg!  After years and years of waiting and waiting, my beautiful city in the middle of the Canadian Prairie is getting an IKEA!!!

I think the Universe has heard our collective cries for help... or maybe my housegods are sick and tired of looking at my crappy-looking, disorganized, and messed-up foyer.

Anyway, as a bit of a teaser and to give you a taste of the awesomeness to come, an IKEA Vending Machine will tour the city for Opening Week.  It's filled with IKEA gift cards and delicious treats, and Winnipeggers will be given an Allen Key for a chance to unlock something inside!  

See?  Like this!

Exciting, right?!  If you want in on the awesome, be sure to check IKEA Canada's Twitter and Facebook pages ahead of time or you won't know where the machine will pope up next.  You know, like a big yellow TARDIS.

Okay, so on opening day, November 28th, 2012, the doors will open at 12:01am.  But check this... the first 1000 people in line before 7:30am will receive a special gift from IKEA and a chance to win a $5000 IKEA gift card!  So, if you're an early bird or morning people, you have a really good chance at cashing in!

When I told Roomie about this, he said, "You're not going on opening day!  There's going to be a crowd, and you don't like people!"

Actually, I do like people.  But he's right, I don't like crowds, so if you're like me, don't worry that you'll be missing all the fun if you wait!  Opening week offers continue until December 2nd.
Be sure to check it out at IKEA.ca/Winnipeg.  

Oh, but my peeps, you are getting a sneak peak, because I've been invited to their Media Night Event TONIGHT!  I have the honour of checking the place out in advance, so if you want a preview, make sure you're following me on Twitter for my live tweets.

And stay tuned for upcoming blog posts as I transform and IKEA-fy my foyer, which currently looks like this... yikes!...

So, my lovely 'Peggers, are you as excited as I am?!!!  What are you looking forward to the most?  That long awaited kitchen reno?  A coffee table?  The meatballs?  :)

  1. Have fun!

    I have never been to an IKEA - the closest one is about 50 miles away and not having a car makes the place more or less useless to us :-(
