Yay, it’s Friday. I have been so excited to share my fun evening of shopping at the new PA Cost Plus World Market. It was a shopping experience for all the senses – a live jazz band playing in the store, the scents of candles, soaps, and all things lovely, beautiful merchandise displayed artfully, and the tastes of yummy treats prepared before our eyes! World Market pulled out all the stops for the grand opening of the new Montgomeryville store! If you live in Lancaster, it’s a little over an hour drive and well worth the trip! You are gonna love it!
I wanted to show you a sampling of the wide variety of items you can purchase at World Market. So, we’ll start with my BIG purchase – this gorgeous Light Gray Emilie Flatweave Sweater Wool Area Rug.
Did I NEED a new rug for the living room – no. But when I saw this rug, I knew it would look so awesome in my living room. The colors are spot on and the quality is soooooo much better than what I currently had in the space. Here’s a closer look.
Don’t you agree – it’s perfect in my living room and I’m so glad I brought it home (well, to be completely honest, I didn’t bring it home that night. I actually went back with the hubs the next day and brought it home! I had taken my son’s small Mazda and I didn’t want to struggle trying to get it to fit in there!!!) Now, even though I said this was my BIG purchase, I’m not saying this rug was super expensive. It is very reasonably priced for a wool rug and the quality is amazing! There was a large selection of rugs and I may be heading back to Montgomeryville for another rug for my screen porch this spring!
My next purchase, is this Danieli flatware. I’ve been looking for some new flatware that is a heavy weight and would work well with my farmhouse/cottage style. Well, this flatware fits the ticket! I love the look of pewter finish! I started my collection eight sets of the basics – dinner fork, knife, and spoon. I’ll be adding the salad forks and soup spoons on my next trip!
So how about this for some cuteness! Yes, Sadie is loving my new Sweet Dreams pillow cases from World Market. I grabbed my camera when I saw her snuggled in for a long winter’s nap!! They have many more fun pillow cases with messages!
Okay, I admit it – I love to buy soaps and lotions with a pretty container! But, they also have to have a pretty scent! I fell in love with the gorgeous Paris style label on this hand soap and lotion set! The classic label and then that scent – orange blossom – sooooo good! I just found the set online HERE and it also comes in a body butter – adding that to my list for the next trip (my list is growing – better start saving!!!).
These adorable small Hipster Gift Bags landed in my cart! They are absolutely perfect for my boys who are the epitome of hipster and love their music and vinyl collections! I’m saving these for a special gift or may even use them at Easter? All I know is – these bags screamed – Josh, Caleb and Seth and had to come home with me!!
And, finally, I couldn’t resist a little something for me! I rarely do this, but their jewelry and accessories are gorgeous and I fell in love with these Aqua Stone Gold Wire Wrap Drop Earrings. Priced at just $14.99, they were a nice treat for me and I can’t wait to wear them this spring and summer!!
I hope I’ve given you a good representation of the variety of fun and useful items you can find at World Market! There’s so much more – artwork, delicious candies and chocolate, furniture, home decor of every kind . . . just visit the World Market website to see all they have to offer! I know I’m so happy to now have this store in Pennsylvania, but if you don’t have a store within driving distance, you can always place an order online!
Thanks so much to World Market for sponsoring this post. All opinions are completely my own.

I giggle for World Market is just so close to me!!! But being handicapped and my husband as well, I don’t get out much! When we married 11 years ago, we used wedding money and got our table, extra leaf, four chairs and two arm chairs as a set special. Styles changed and my daughter married five years ago and about four years ago got her table ( not so formal now!) and fully upholstered in a linen type fabric with those tacks for an amazing price too. We both love their quality. I love the specialty foods for gift baskets. And the adorable kitchen prep bowls in bright colors. Last summer I updated a bathroom just by getting towels, bath at and shower curtain!! I love their industrial things and stretched canvas paintings. Yes love their soaps and hand creams in the tube now. Something for everyone!! I love their website for it tells me if my store has the item I’m looking for and I can change a zip code and look for it in another store too. What you chose totally goes with your home!!! I hope you joined their rewards program. I have $10 off $30 to spend soon before it expires!! And I think an email for 15% off my total purchase. Enjoy your shopping experiences!!
Love that rug, Doreen and those bags would be cute framed, too as art.
Another gal blogged about this new store. We don’t have one on Long Island, I am jealous! Fun trip.
So glad you have a Cost Plus World Market close by…and here i thought everyone did! They are my go-to place for so many things so I’m lucky it’s a 10 minute drive from my home.
That rug is lovely…great find.
Congrats on your new CPWM!
Loved your pics! I can’t believe the store has been open almost a month and I still haven’t made it there! I could literally ride my bike-sure I might need a tad bit of oxygen afterwards but it is doable… If you get out this way again give me some notice and I’ll share all the awesome thrift stores with you!
That would be amazing!!!

Your room is beautiful! Can you tell me the name of the paint color on the wall? It’s just what I’ve had in mind to use in my daughters room.
Hi, Charla! Thanks so much! The paint color is Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.
I just love the color of your living room walls. Would you tell me what color it is?
Thanks so much,
My living room walls are Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. Thanks for asking!
Hi there! How has this rug held up? I would like to order it but there are quite a few negative reviews about it shedding.
Hi, Allie. I love it. As far as shedding, it is wool and wool does shed. But, in comparison to my wool and jute rug that I have in my dining room, the shedding from this rug is less. I have a cat and already vac a lot, so it doesn’t bother me.
I love the look… beautiful. I also am admiring the paint color on the walls. Can you tell me name and brand of paint? Thank you… happy Friday!!
It’s Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter in Eggshell finish.
what color gray is that on the walls in the top picture with the black and white curtains ?absolutely love the color gray thank you
Hi! Love, love this room and your style! Do you mind telling me where you got that oval table? It is beautiful!
Hi. It’s an antique and was my grandmother’s! Thanks for asking!
Hi Doreen! I am dying to find a side table just like yours! Where did you buy it? The big wooden oval one in all of your pictures? It’s truly stunning!
Thanks so much, Lindsey!!! It was my Grandmother’s. I remember it from her sitting room when I was a little girl. She passed away when I was in high school and this piece was what I chose to keep to remember her. Of course, my parents had it until I married, but I’ve had it in our home ever since! I’m sure you can find a similar one for sale if you search Etsy, Ebay, Craigslist, etc. Search “empire library table”.
Hi! I am obsessed with your curtains. Where did you find them? I’ve been looking everywhere for something similar. Thanks!
