On Tuesday, August 18th I got the chance to attend The Cost Plus World Market NYC Store Press/Media Preview event and it was a blast!

There was a photo wall that contained the history of Cost Plus World Market in images which I thought was pretty awesome:
|Cost Plus World Market Double Shutter Doors Holbrook Sideboard|
|SkyFall Vineyard Pinot Gris Columbia Valley 2013 (More Please!)|
|Cost Plus World Market Mediterranean Sea Potpourri|
I love how their logo is etched into the wood, I saw this on the wall and had to nab a shot:

My only cons are because of New York State Liquor license laws, the NY Chelsea store will NOT offer any wine, and since I can't order it online either, I am bummed I can't get their great selection to my door. They also won't be selling food at the Chelsea store, but their foods will be available at the Bed, Bath and Beyond store right next to them, so at least I can try those. I really loved getting a chance to see the online items up close. There were certain items I was going to discount based on the online descriptions, but seeing them in person changed my mind completely, there are a few storage and living space items that look so much 'richer' in person than they do online, and as for me and sofas, I need to give them a 'butt test' as in 'sit my butt on them and see if they are comfy' - and one of the daybeds which I would have never thought of, was so comfortable when I tested it that I am adding it to my wishlist and will purchase very soon.
The Press Preview was a blast and you may even spot me there for Grand Opening Weekend as well.
