We’re thrilled that we can bring that experience into the homes of our customers through our unique and authentic product assortment.”
Also through August 28, customers can enter online or in-store for a chance to win a grand prize trip for two to one of the three destinations featured in the film – Italy, India, or Bali – provided by Intrepid Travel; a $1000 World Market gift card, and a private movie screening of Eat Pray Love.
