About Us

In the late 1950s, a San Francisco businessman turned traveler and importer began selling shiploads of hand-woven wicker from one of the city's piers. As crates were unloaded, locals lined up and loaded up. Even curious tourists were drawn to the unique and unusual.

With such a receptive audience eagerly awaiting his return, it only made sense to open a store. And in 1958 he opened the first store in San Francisco's famed Fisherman's Wharf and called it Cost Plus World Market. The store quickly became a destination for those who craved original and handmade items from around the world. Items were sold at cost, plus ten percent - hence the name Cost Plus World Market!

More than fifty years later it's still our passion to discover extraordinary finds from all over the world and make them accessible to all. Our everyday low prices and high-quality, original items are a great value. Choose from eye-catching, trend-setting home accents, an awe-inspiring array of international foods and wines, and much more.

We bring the beauty and excitement of global bazaars to you. Our selection is always changing, and, like favorite mementos from your life, each item has a story worth sharing. From Balinese baskets, pottery from Portugal and collectibles from Africa to scrolled artwork inspired by Spanish artifacts - each store is a treasure trove.

Gifts galore fill our floors - you'll find something for everyone, from children to parents. And when you need entertaining essentials, we're your one-stop shop - whether you're hosting a holiday or a very personal special occasion.
