Just for the sake of sending it to Ms. Marmite Lover, I could not resist taking a picture of Vegemite (remember Men at Work 'Down Under') and Marmite shoulder to shoulder at Cost Plus World Market in Livingston.
Even though this one and only location in New Jersey has been opened for about a year (according to staff member) I discovered the store while picking up an item for a client at Buy Buy Baby next door.
Store concept feels a bit like Anthropologie meets AC Moore (for DIY craft items) and Sur La Table for kitchenware and housewares with an international food section added on top.
Ms. Marmite Lover new book V is for Vegan happens to be published today (April 23, 2015) in the UK.
