looking to relocate to an area no more than 30 min. from the ocean, low cost of living, no more than 2 hrs. from cultural events (ballet, trans siberian orch., cirque, etc.). near shopping (Chico's and Ikea). Population no more than 200,000, preferably about 15,000. Not too hot in summer.

How about Brunswick County, Shallotte, Southport etc. Halfway between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington. Hmmm Ikea? I don't think they have one in MB but that isn't the end of the world.

There are Chico's in both Wilmington and North Myrtle Beach. I don't think there is an Ikea in all of NC. (please correct me if I'm wrong!!). They are planning to build one in Charlotte, I think.
That shouldn't be a deal breaker though....there is always online shopping

Closest Ikea to NC is Atlanta and VA for now.

Hate to say it but you are looking in the wrong direction. We have 90-100 degree August temps typically. Liz

At least it will be closer but still 4 hours away. May as well still use the online version of Ikea. Liz

Funny you mention that.

I've never bought anything from Ikea, and thought I'd check it out. I was in the market for a bookshelf, and saw one I liked for like $30 or so.

As it turned out, shipping was $80. So I think it might be better to buy from the store than online.

Doesn't make sense, does it??? I'm sure there are fairly decent bookcases to be had in our area...we just have to look a bit harder, I guess. Liz

That is because Ikea is from Switzerland I think and that is where they ship from I believe.
