What a Wonderful World…Market
I was killing some time with a friend of mine the other evening (our take out Thai food wasn’t quite ready), and we wandered into World Market across the street. Generally known for their variety of goods, I seem to have readily categorized them as “place to find fun gift wrapping/bags” or “place to pick up obscure Scandinavian candy”.
However, on that night, as we breezed through the automatic sliding doors I took pause. World Market has stepped up their game. I was first drawn into their bath section. In front of me was a lovely display of brightly packaged soaps (I’m a sucker for good packaging) complete with adorable, ceramic bird-topped canisters and plush patterned towels.
Never one to pass up on potential bargains, I moved further into the store (those marketing geniuses had me hooked!). I found fantastic lamps, pillows, knitted poufs, and drapery panels. I was even impressed with their furniture pieces, which were fashionable and affordable.
My friend patiently followed me, while I snapped pictures of all the fun eye-candy.
So what began as a means to kill time, resulted in me spending $60. The upside is that the drapery panels will look fabulous in my dining room.
