The Exchange Fabulous Finds- Cost Plus World Market

I am obsessed with the store Cost Plus World Market. World Market reminds me so much of the way Pier One use to be about twenty years ago when I faithfully shopped the Uptown Lake Street store in Minneapolis. You young whippersnappers may not know this but decades ago, Pier One had a huge selection of fabulous clothes, jewelry and food from all around the world. In fact, years ago, clothing was the main staple for Pier One and over time, the store evolved more into a furniture store, completely dropping apparel and greatly reducing their selection of jewelry, food, teas and coffee from around the world. I still like Pier One, but I have really missed the fabulous jewelry and silver cuff bracelets and earrings straight from Bali and the gorgeous sheer tops from India, authentic candles and soaps from France and Italy, and the unique snacks and teas from all around the world. Until now…

Maybe I’m the last to know here, but just in case, if you have never been in a World Market store (there are several throughout Houston), you are in for a very special treat, but you need a lot of time to sift through all of the goodies from all corners of the world! It’s old school Pier One multiplied times a hundred! World Market carries items from all around the world like Asian rice crackers that are really from Asia, French Champagne that’s really from France and Bali silver cuff bracelets that are really from Bali and Turkish rugs that… well, you get it… In other words, World Market is the real worldly deal and is a fabulous find. Just give yourself at least an hour to go through the store! Their pillows are amazing, here are some of my favs (keep in mind all of these pillows are around $19.99):

I LOVE World Market jewelry, which is inexpensively fabulous! I have also discovered on the World Market website here that they carry a large selection of fabulous “Online Exclusives” that are only available online. For instance, here are a few of the pieces I am in love with right now that are only available online:


My favorite Bali cuff!!

Cost Plus World Market carries virtually everything you can think of including food, furniture, art, soaps and so much more. Here is a small example of some fabulous examples of they type of items World Market offers that I could find online:

These fabulous cloth “Village Bags” are just $3.99! What a terrific bag to use when giving a gift!

I am addicted to these World Market Flatbreads! They are great for dips and cheeses! Also try the World Market private label snacks which include BBQ Almonds!

I LOVE this zebra rug!

World Market has a huge selection of soaps and bath products from around the world. The above soaps are made in Portugal.

Ok, well I could post pictures all day from World Market as I have found so many great things in their store and on their website. You can go to the Cost Plus World Market website here to see if there is a store near you or to shop online!

As promised, I have some fun projects coming up. Thank you again for your emails and comments! I was exited to hear that several of you have tried out the recipes from my last posting “Summer Staple Recipes”.

Enjoy shopping at World Market and I’ll be posting a project shortly.

    Seriously, people are going to think they paid you for this blog, Cyn 😉
    I love the store, too and have found many interesting gifts including carved stones for landscape decor, and some hard-to-find kitchen gadgets for way less than William Sonoma.
