And when I'm on the website, I can click a product, click 'add to shopping cart' then when I click on shopping cart it shows a proceed to checkout link and starts talking about delivery.

But I think I just figured it out... I shop with IKEA Adelaide. Adelaide and Perth are separate from the east coast stores. So the Adelaide and Perth stores offer online/phone shopping but the rest of the stores do not.

I'm in love. And her name is Billy. I just can't wait to get her home and put my stuff in her! Now that probably could have been worded better BUT that's the truth. Thanks for all this info, links and advice.

That's $300 added to my budget expenditure next year.
You've never seen the US price, have you? :3

A lot more expensive, but the 'Liatorp' from Ikea looks a lot better. Glass on 3 sides, & glass shelves. I have something very similar in black.

I've got 2 Ikea Detolf, think I picked them up for $99 on sale. They're already chockas.

How much are those Billy's?

Also if anyone who has children is interested in buying a Detolf but is worried about little hands getting to their collection, I found the perfect showcase locks for this unit.

Look for the CR Laurence Co Inc. 255 No-Drill Glass Lock, I got the chrome finish, comes with 2 keys and works a treat. Fits on showcases with glass on perpendicular panels.

If you email CR Laurence Co Inc. through their website you can find a supplier in your area.

I think they were only about $20 each from memory (had to get one for each cabinet!).

Funny story. IKEA have a book out called Billy, all about the history of IKEA and the Billy bookcase. And Billy is actually a boy. Awkward!!

He'd wondered why it had that extra handle...
