In the country of the Ikea-less, the guy reselling Ikea basics with like a five-dollar markup is king. New Zealand is such a country, and Mocka is such a king. Seriously, how weird is this?
Mocka offers free shipping on "Affordable European designs" like the "Mocka designer highchair" above, which anyone can see is actually the Ikea Antilop. [I know because I just pulled ours out of storage yesterday. It's identical in every dimple.]
The Mocka is $89, currently marked down ["offer ends May 26 (sic)"] to $69. The Antilop is $20; [it used to be $14]. A 350% markup? Could the country with more sheep than people really be fleeced so easily? Not quite.
$US 20 is NZ$ 27.
But the Antilop is $AU 39 in Australia, which is $US 37, or NZ$ 49. So whether you're Phil or Ted, a Haka-dancing rugby player or a hobbit, Mocka will go abroad, brave the Ikea mob, and deliver a high chair to your door for just NZ$20, or fifteen bucks US? That's just crazy. Tell him to bring some meatballs, too.
UPDATE IT GETS CRAZIER: From Eric's comment below, we learn that some Environmental Court has again thwarted Ikea's most recent attempt to open a store in New Zealand. Says it'd be too popular and generate too much traffic. Obviously, Mocka is an angel of mercy, an inspiration to us all. We need to organize an Ikea Airlift for New Zealand ASAP. In case we don't get permission from the totalitarian NZ regime, we should start with air droppable products: light plastics and soft things, not any of the particle board stuff. Just imagine all the book collections in disarray across the country right now, though... the horror... the horror...
