At the beginning of December, my sister Stephanie and I drove to August, GA, to Final Cut. Final Cut is the final clearance center for Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Free People and BHLDN. I first heard about the store from my friend Megan's blog. She took a trip there earlier in the summer.
Ever since I mentioned the store to my sister, she has been dying to go. She would check Final Cut's Facebook page practically everyday. The first weekend in December, Final Cut had a sidewalk sale where they were selling damage or broken furniture. Of course that's the day we went.
I bought this green sofa for $50. The legs are broken, but other than that it's in perfect condition. At the time I bought it, the sofa was listed on Urban Outfitter's website for $700 brand new.
The inside of the store is a mess! Half of the store is clothing and the other half is home decor. I wasn't very impressed with the clothing prices. Sweaters, dresses and pants were $20. Skirts, shorts and tops were $15. They also have wedding dresses from BHLDN for around $100-300, but they were all hideous.
Considering that I would have to spend hours digging through boxes for clothes, those prices didn't seem worth it to me. I made two passes through the clothing to see if anything caught my eye. I tried on about 5 items and ended up buying a sweater.
I spent most of my time in the home section of the store. 5x7 rugs were $200. 8x10 rugs were $300. Door mat size rugs were $50.
The prices were all over the place with the furniture. Some of the sofas were $2000 and some were $150.
A couple bloggers mentioned that there were signs posted saying that photos weren't allowed, but that wasn't the case when I went.
My sister ended up buying a chair, two rugs, two duvet covers and some clothes. I think she spent around $250. I just bought the sofa and a sweater.
On our way back home, we stopped at Ikea in Atlanta and bought more stuff. Somehow everything fit in my car! Final Cut is definitely worth a stop, but it's a good idea to check out the Facebook page before going. I would love to go back in a couple months after we buy a house!
