Decor Shopping: Outlets
- Ballard Design, Frontgate and Grandin Road share an outlet location in West Chester, OH. Of the three we have had particularly good luck at Ballard, where we purchased accent chairs, large mirrors, an upholstered bench, bar stools and side tables. Many of the items here are simply surplus items without any damage. However, there are a lot of damaged items as well, so look everything over really well. Don’t forget to check out the websites before you go! Ballard actually lists their sales for the week under each location AND you can call with an item number to see if they have it in stock…they don’t like to do this, but they will 😉
- The Pottery Barn Outlet in Jeffersonville, OH has a large selection of furniture with minor damage and surplus decor. They actually have a large nursery and kids section, which wasn’t helpful for us, but may be of interest to you. It’s a great place to pick up pillows, throws, picture frames and mantle decor.
- Arhaus recently opened an outlet near Colombus, OH. You can find key furniture items here such as couches, beds, tables and accent chairs, but they had very few decor items when we visited. Many of the chairs and side tables we looked at were damaged, but a lot of the couches seemed to be in pretty good shape.
- Though we haven’t gone yet, an Anthropologie outlet called Final Cut does exist in Augusta, GA. It looks like they have a nice mix of apparel and home furnishings at affordable prices. When we do go, I believe renting a U-Haul will be necessary.
