fuck ikea

Post by bill » Fri Sep 14, 2007 11:01 am

yo. i rand carberry candles - a local porducer of hand made candles. he says he went out of business when ikea opened up. they are nice guys and now make biodiesel from waste veg oil. this made me sad. i asked where we could get candles from. he said the only place still making candles that he knows of is in alston. this is a remote part of northumberland. i go there from time to time. the man there is an old doddering cool hippy. he sells ones with slight defects for cheap. big coloured candles 100 for £10. i bought 200. with consent i will buy him out of stock when next i am there so as to avoid anyone we know having to go to ikea.

Sounds good. Colours will be nice. We could sell the bottles to bobos once they are well encrusted.

Great. It is definitely worth paying a bit more to avoid Ikea.

On a slightly related front of house note: Emily brought us some good looking skipped lilies last week - they hadn't even started flowering yet. Keep your eyes open if yer at the bins.
