KLACKEBERGA, Sweden – Most people find deals inside their Ikea bags but one woman in Sweden found something shocking inside the popular blue and yellow tote.

A woman says she found 80 skeletons stuffed inside several Ikea bags.

She says the bags were found sitting under a tarp inside a local church.

Authorities say the church was using the Ikea bags to store the remains of 80 people who were once buried under the floorboards of the church.

They say the bodies were discovered when parts of the church were renovated to install a wheelchair ramp.

A team was called to remove the bones and bury them five years ago but the reburial was delayed.

Experts say some of the bones could be as many as 500-years-old.
