The Furniture Factory Outlet Guide, 2013 Edition

by Kimberly Causey 
(Home Decor Press, $19.95, 228 pages, available in Kindle and paperback editions)

This new 2013 update of The Furniture Factory Outlet Guide promises to be even more popular than the original. This book has been recommended by Money Magazine (June 2013), The "Today" Show, SmartMoney, Reader's Digest, Consumer's Digest, Your Money, Redbook, Woman's Day, Working Mother, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Dallas Morning News, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Orange County Register, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the San Diego Union-Tribune, among many other national media.

The Furniture Factory Outlet Guide is the most comprehensive book available about saving money on furniture. It gives detailed reviews of factory owned factory outlets for hundreds of furniture brands, including Henredon, Hooker, Century, Baker, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Pottery Barn, Hickory White, La Barge, Maitland-Smith, La-Z-Boy, Hammary, Vanguard, Bernhardt, Thomasville, Darlee Outdoor Furniture, Lane, Broyhill, Stanley, Bassett, and many more.

The Guide gives addresses, driving directions, phone numbers, and detailed reviews of what types and quantities of furniture each outlet has available. All the information is there to help consumers go directly to the best source for the particular type of furniture they are looking for--which is very important when you have a limited amount of time to shop.

For those consumers who do not wish to travel to the outlets themselves, The Furniture Factory Outlet Guide also gives contact information for a number of reputable discounters who take orders over the phone at 40% to 50% off the prices charged by local retailers for the same furniture. These discounters can ship anywhere in the country. Depending on where you live, you may not owe sales tax on your purchases, which is a substantial additional savings.

Most importantly, every factory outlet and discounter listed in The Furniture Factory Outlet Guide has been thoroughly checked out by the author. She does on-site inspections of each outlet to make sure they are actually factory owned and actually give the discounts they advertise.

Over half of the companies in North Carolina claiming to be legitimate factory outlets are actually full-price furniture retailers trying to deceive the public and hop on the NC outlet bandwagon. Anyone who plans to travel to North Carolina to buy furniture, or order furniture over the phone, needs this book to be sure they are buying from legitimate companies.

As Leslie Hoffecker, reporting for the San Diego Union-Tribune, said: "With Kimberly Causey, you've got a friend in the business".

The Insider's Guide to Buying Home Furnishings teaches consumers to buy their furniture, fabrics, wallcoverings, carpeting, custom window treatments, lighting, and other home furnishings at 50% to 80% off retail--just like professional interior designers do when they decorate their own homes. Professional designers don't pay retail when they shop for themselves--neither should you! 

Author Kimberly Causey shares her insights from a lifetime working in a home furnishings manufacturing business. She teaches consumers how the home furnishings industry works: in the factories, behind the scenes at retail furniture stores, at the trade centers in Dallas and Atlanta, and at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC. She gives over 1,200 wholesale sources for all types of home furnishings, with all contact information.

The author also teaches consumers how to avoid common mistakes many consumers make that waste money, as well as how to avoid the many scams and ripoffs that pervade the home furnishings industry.

Ms. Causey is a very well-known consumer advocate. She has been on hundreds of TV and radio programs as an expert on consumer issues relating to furniture and home furnishings. She has also been the subject of feature articles in over 100 major daily newspapers and magazines, including: House Beautiful Decorating and Remodeling, the Chicago Tribune, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and many more.
 

The Insider's Guide to Buying Home Furnishings was the best selling decorating book in bookstores nationwide for the years 1997-1999. It outsold competing titles by Martha Stewart, Chris Casson Madden, Alexandra Stoddard, and many other nationally known authors. 

If you are decorating a house, you need to get a copy of this book before you spend a cent on home furnishings. It will pay for itself many, many times over.
