Cost Plus World Market, sometimes jokingly referred to as "Cost More Third World Market", is a chain import store in Davis. They sell many different types of wine, some of which are really cheap. They also sell ethnic food, basic furnishings, dishes, and otherwise decorative kitsch.
They are the only store in town that sells the popular papasan chairs. The only other way to get these highly-sought-after chairs in Davis is to search tiredly through Dumpsters and garage sales.
Some question the authenticity of their products.
Some question how worldly they actually are, pointing out that they contribute to the destruction of the rainforest.

2007-06-28 15:33:44 Cost Plus is great - they have lots of fun foods, a great selection of affordable wines, and various things for the house, from plates and napkins to artwork and tables...you can pretty much find anything here - it may not be high quality, but it's interesting and relatively inexpensive. —AcMach
2007-08-22 16:58:06 definitely cost...plus though. Some of the prices are ridiculous! —ArianeMetz
2007-12-03 12:10:12 I like Cost Plus, haven't had any problems with em yet! I think their merchandise is very well priced and the quality is great as well! —UNA1475
2007-12-03 21:27:40 Very nicely furnished, and they have a ton of unique stuff. Though some stuff can be overpriced, some are really cheap. Stuffed animals were 50% off today! :D —EvelinaChang
2008-03-19 16:33:36 I love Cost Plus! I go about every once a week for assorted goods. They have new sales every week or so. Some things are indeed overpriced, but all in all, its a great place to go. —VTang
2008-05-28 21:45:00 sigh . . . can we just bulldoze this place and make a trader joes? swear. —chand3123k
Even though Wold Market has nothing to do with Trader Joes moving into the U-Mall and nothing will be bulldozed for TJ's, if that were really the case, I'd say get rid of the Gottschalks over World Market any day. World Market is the best place to get European and Asian snacks and candy, and I really love going there. —SRB
Gottschalk's. Out of business. The radiology building. Bulldozed. Just sayin'. —Flynn
2008-06-02 19:12:30 Agree. Would the papasans be missed that much if there was a TJ option here? —JamesWilk
2008-07-01 16:57:14 I really love this place....prices are pretty cheap if you look for the deals....I bought stemless wine glasses for 1.99 while at target they were much much more per glass. I also bought a tv cabinet and a behind the couch long table...both were priced reasonably and not just look good but have had held up through some rather iffy apartment moves. Sure....a trader joe's would be lovely....but why be pissy about having a place that mainly offers furnishings! Plus...there are few things I can't find at Nugget that trader joe's offers. —sdlexie
2009-03-03 11:38:43 Fun place and always an interesting selection of delicacies and flavors from around the world. One thing they need to fix is their patronizing and entirely arbitrary attitude to IDing customers. I've seen them ID people who were probably there when California became a State and, a moment later, they don't ID someone who didn't look old enough to drive (because apparently the cashier "knew" this person). Another time they asked for my ID and the lady in front of me in the line asked why they didn't ID her: she was furious when the cashier suggested it was because she looked over 40! —Mazzle
2009-06-08 19:10:26 I hereby predict that this store will go out of business within 8 months of Target's opening in Davis. Nonetheless, this is a great place to buy basic home necessities (especially kitchen stuff) if you're too lazy to drive to Woodland. —jsogul
April 2010 - Still kicking. Two more months to go... As for 'home necessities, especially kitchen stuff', what's wrong with Ace Housewares? —Flynn
2010-01-21 20:51:12 two words - Cadbury Fingers!!! —LeeY
2010-02-22 22:02:40 world market has been having a way better beer (both singles/mix-and-match and 6-packs) selection than they did a couple years back. unfortunately they cut back on their gourmet chocolate selection though, so i don't have anywhere to get michel cluizel locally anymore. spice jars are cheap here, and occasionally they'll put out ads with coupons for $5 off $25 and send out good email offers if you're on the list (including $10 for your birthday to spend on anything). —MiranPark
2010-04-11 19:52:57 One thing this place has is a great selection of candy and sodas. Some esoterica, but if you love REAL SUGAR in your drinkables, this is the place in Davis. I haven't had Birch Beer in over a decade, and found some here. I may have actually said 'squee'. —Flynn
psst...Nugget has Birch Beer..... —DonShor
