Cost Plus World Market was started in the 1950s by a San Francisco businessman operating out of Fisherman's Wharf. He wanted to bring tourists products that were unusual and distinct. Since then, more than 260 Cost Plus World Market stores have opened up nationwide. This place is great if you are looking for stylish products with an international funky charm. The store features a variety of wine, candies and speciality imported food. Cost Plus also carries furniture, kitchen and dining items, bed and bath, home decor, holiday items, gift cards and jewelry.
