Introducing the CRAFT BY WORLD MARKET Collection

Craft By World Market

Have you ever been to a World Market store? I used to shop there every chance I got when I lived in Los Angeles. They specialize in beautiful, handmade items from around the world.

They are now offering something new:

Craft by World Market is an ever-changing collection of limited-edition handcrafted goods that you bring to life by “voting” with your order.

This month’s collection is inspired by the film The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and features 9 products made by artisans from India.

The second installment of this popular movie is now in theaters. I was looking forward to attend the premiere in New York but couldn’t make it because we had another snow/ice storm.


I missed seeing handsome Richard Gere, who is a new guest of the Marigold Hotel in this movie! It’s no surprise that all the women in the hotel are over the moon about him.

World Market visited India’s artisan communities and curated one-of-a-kind items for CRAFT that represent the country’s dynamic marketplaces, beautiful architecture, and colorful wedding ceremonies.

Products include:

I can’t decide which one I love more: the tray, the blue shelf, or the marble lotus bowl. They are all stunning!

How CRAFT BY WORLD MARKET works:

CRAFT BY WORLD MARKET is a whole new way to shop the world! Their merchants search the world for rare, handmade finds and offer them up in small quantities for a limited time.

If enough people preorder an item, it will be made and shipped. These items can’t be found in World Market retail stores and are exclusive to the CRAFT collection.

If you see an item you like, click “preorder.” Enter your credit card information — you won’t be charged unless the item meets the preorder requirement for production.

Your order will be confirmed when enough people have preordered the item. Once your item is shipped, your credit card will be charged.

If the number of preorders isn’t met within the time frame (typically 30 days), the design will not be created. Your preorder will be cancelled and your credit card will not be charged.

I think this is an exciting new concept of shopping — and I hope a World Market store will come to Westchester soon!

Which one of the nine CRAFT items is your favorite?
