{Field Trip} World Market

  I’m lucky, and cursed, enough to work five minutes from virtually every major home retailer. Lucky, because I have access to all my favorite stores, but cursed, because I frequently wander in them on my lunch breaks! Last week, I ‘accidentally’ found myself at World Market….which is always a happy place. I was so tempted by all their cute Spring accessories, and don’t even get me started on the Outdoor Collections they just rolled out for Summer!



    If I didn’t already have a patio set, this sectional would come home with me. I took the little girl, instead. The orange chevron pillow may be next.

(Keep reading to see more of their collection, and how to win a $5,000 World Market gift card!)



 Some of my favorite outdoor entertaining items have come from World Market…like this potting bench, and this tableware! I think I’ll be adding to my collection soon. These stools make great side tables in tight spots.


  I’ve got my eye on these pendants…wouldn’t they be great for outdoor lighting?!



   I also love that World Market is fun for everyone in my family….no one ever grumbles about my ‘quick stops.’


 Wouldn’t it be sa-weet if you had a $5,000 World Market gift card?! Can you even imagine how fun that shopping spree would be? Well, World Market is celebrating Moms this year, by giving away one $5,000, and 10 $500 gift cards, in their ‘My Amazing Mom Contest & Fan Sweepstakes.’

        Facebook fans can also enter the Fan Sweepstakes. Simply follow on your favorite social media channels, or Follow World Market on Pinterest (this must be done within the Facebook application) for more chances to win one of 10 $500 World Market gift cards.

    Although we all know everyday is Mother’s Day, World Market wants to put the spotlight on your mom this year, more than ever! Check out some of the World Market Mother’s Day gift ideas.

    So what do you have your eye on at World Market these days?!

  1. I'm still kicking myself for not running out to grab one of those potting benches like you got last year. It was marked down online to like $20 or something crazy. Why, why, why did I hesitate?

    Elie, my oldest, and I spent quite some time at World Market last Saturday. She picked up some awesome things for her apartment. She then went back later and purchased the super cute orange, white and yellow chevron covers for their outdoors directors chairs and got an awesome yellow table to go with for her porch. You can see them on her blog Rich Taste and Vanilla Cake.

  3. I love that store..! There is not one close to the office or home, but sometimes I make the trek and am never disappointed! Might have to make that trek this weekend :o)

  5. I so wish I had one nearby – it's online shopping for me. They always kill it in the outdoor decor area! I want one of those red stools like yesterday!

    Nearest WM is 36 miles away. They were around years ago (much closer too!) and closed up shop and now are back, but further away. I did make a trip out a few weeks ago. I found sconces for my living room, fun measuring cups and "vaniller bean" (in my best Curtis Stone Aussie accent). LOL I love wandering through there. Such a fun place.

    I love World Market, unfortunately for me, I live like 2 hours from the closest one! Anyway, I got to see some of these in person too, that black grid table was a Crate and Barrel look-a-like I think 2 seasons back! Thanks for letting us know about the contest too!

    World Market is easy in my top 5 shops. Half my house is fulled with their furniture, kitchen stuff, knick-knacks etc. Last spring I got the outdoor sectional! I love it, but been making myself crazy trying to keep those white cushions clean…ugh! ~Rosanne

  13. Sure hope they make their way up to the northeast sometime soon. For now, their website keeps me happy enough. Would prob be crazy dangerous to my credit cards if they actually opened a store nearby!

    Oh wow! I have recently started reading your blog (all the way from Australia) and think I may need to stop. I don't need to know about places that exist like World Market and don't do international shipping. It is like putting a kid in a candy store and telling them they can look but not eat anything. Seriously though, I am loving your blog. Thanks. Kelly

    I'm curious to find out what blog platform you're using?

    I'm having some small security issues with my latest website and I'd like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any suggestions?
