Hey everyone…. just found out my local IKEA store has sold out of these lanterns and now I’m feeling a little desperate as the next closest store is 2 hours away.
Any other websites that sell lanterns like this – they aren’t paper, they’re made out of fabric which is why I really like them. They look better and more durable.
Really hoping I do not have to travel 2 hours just for these lanterns with the gas prices right now. =(

Did you ask the IKEA closest to you if they could check to see if the other stores have some? If they do, they could probably have them shipped to the store closest to you and you could pick them up there, instead of having to travel to the other ones yourself or trying to search for them somewhere else.

Can you order them online?

@noritake22: I did call to make sure they were out of stock but didn’t think about asking them to ship from one store to another… I’ll give them a call now.

@Gingersnap: It’s not available for order on line.
@noritake22: They don’t ship store to store.

@stephalina6: No way!! That blows. Is there anything else you need at IKEA? I’d hate to drive 2 hours and spend a ton on gas just to buy a few lanterns.
You said they’re out of stock – are they going to be re-stocking anytime soon?

I just bought some of these! They are actually a gift, but I definitely want some for myself for our yard. I have not seen anything quite like this before, because in addition to not being paper they run on a solar battery. So cool! No ugly extension cords to worry about. They also come in a string of 8 smaller ones, too.
