Title: Looking for collectors displaying their collection in BILLY bookcases
Post by: sofiesord on May 06, 2015, 04:10:48 am
Hi all!
I would like to get in contact with people who are displaying their collections in IKEA BILLY bookcases.

I work for what is going to be the IKEA Museum in Älmhult, Sweden, and we are currently collecting stories and images from people all over the world who use the BILLY bookcase in fun, creative and interesting ways. Displaying collections in them certainly is interesting!

So, if you store and display your collection in a BILLY bookcase, and want to show it off on our blog, I would be very happy. The blog, www.billy-klippan.com is a place where we collect and share stories. Some of the stories that are submitted via the blog will be selected to appear in the IKEA Museum when it opens. We may also contact some of the people if we want to make a bigger feature in the museum.

On the blog, there is a contact form you can fill in to submit your story and images (Click on Contribute with your own story). We like to hear about everything from the size of you collection, why you collect, your favorite items etc. to why you chose the BILLY bookcase, and what the next step for your collecting is.

If you want to share your story - just go to the blog. If you have questions, you are welcome to contact me: sofie.bergkvist@inter-ikea.com. I hope you don't disapprove of me reaching out in this forum!

Hope to see some amazing collections soon!

Sofie Bergkvist
Curator
IKEA Museum

Cool! That definitely looks like something we'd like to share on our IKEA blog! I'd be really happy if you would also post the pic through our webform, http://billy-klippan.com/contribute-with-your-own-story, and write a few sentences about your collection and display. Would you mind?  :) Thanks!! /Sofie
