The backstory: I haven’t been a regular shopper at Cost Plus World Market since I lived in California more than 30 years ago (and the store was still called Cost Plus). When one opened in my corner of New Jersey, I was very excited about it and went on opening weekend. I texted my sister about my excitement.
Me: Cost Plus opens today. I am v. excited. Show mama the cheaply produced imported goods!
KO: Enjoy them now before the trade war starts.
Oh, the comforts of the dismal science.
