Oh Happy Day...World Market in NJ!

For my IG friends, this may be all been-there-done-that, so I apologize for the repeat...but to me, this news is totally worth hearing {or seeing} twice.  WORLD MARKET HAS COME TO NJ!!!

Yup, I just capital letter shouted at you guys, but I swear it was a fun/excited shout.  I was so thrilled to find out that I would be able to walk around in one of my favorite online stores!  Okay, so it's not a true online-only store, but the closest location for me used to be Maryland...that's a four hour drive that I couldn't ever justify.  Fortunately for our home, that distance didn't stop me from shopping online.  I've made a few purchases and I even wrote a blog post over a year ago about some of my favorite things at the time {although I'm pretty sure I need, yes need, to add these bar stools and a bed or two to that list now.}

The worst part of online shopping all the glorious goodies World Market has to offer was when I'd run into the occasional "available in-store only" message.  Thankfully, that doesn't matter anymore because World Market had their grand opening in Livingston, NJ!  Now they are just a short drive away...woot woooooot!

Hubby and I were so excited to go to the grand opening celebration because they had the Scott brothers in attendance!


Yup that's right, all three were there...not just the amazing Property Brothers themselves, but J.D. Scott too! It was a ton of fun to see our favorite HGTV personalities in real life!



After we got our pictures snapped with them, I was off to ogle the eye candy.  No matter what you are looking for, head to World Market.  They literally have it all...from furniture, to rugs, to home decor, to gifts, to food, to coffee and jewelry.

I snapped a few pictures of my favorite things as I toured the new store.





I'm pretty sure my hubby had to peel me out of this chair.  It's. So. Pretty!!




I love the color and variety this store has to offer!  There is just so much awesomeness {yup, totally a word} in one place.  All you locals, run...don't walk...to check it out!! ;)




***I was not compensated in any way for writing this post.  I'm just super excited and wanted to share my opinions with you guys.  You know I'll always be 100% honest and keep it real!***

  13. I never knew I should be grateful to grow up near a World Market, but now I am convinced. We used to window shop there with my dad way back in the late eighties and early nineties. I guess they have been in Phoenix forever!
