IKEA Tampa Fan Blog is pleased to report that we have been featured (aka linked to :) in a blog about IKEA fanatics, written by Tampa's very own funny man, Clark Brooks. You can read the original blog here, and also read the posting on Sticks of Fire here. I am flattered that Mr. Brooks chose to link to this blog, and my hope is to convert Mr. IKEA Hater to a Swedish-meatball-lovin'-allen-wrench-using-flush-up-for-number-one-and-down-for-number-two IKEA groupie, even if it means several trips to IKEA Orlando dragging him kicking and screaming...

There were only three of us who attended the groundbreaking yesterday that were obviously not part of the media, city or county government or sent to represent our place of employment. The St. Pete Times reporter, Emily Nipps, sought us out as she wanted to write about the excitement that is brewing around the new IKEA Tampa store. I was busy taking a million pictures and Charlene was saving our second row seats, so Claire took it for the team and gave Emily a great interview which you can read here.

Hej IKEA Tampa groupies! I am pleased to announce that as of today, Tampa now has its own official, unofficial place for all things IKEA Tampa. I was thrilled to be able to attend the groundbreaking today and will be posting the photos and more details from the big event very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this short video excerpt from today's event...
