Fabulous place settings, including feather place mats, are among the finds at Horchow Finale.

Have you ever spied a serving platter or colorful rug in a catalog that would be perfect for your home, but was a tad--okay, really--out of your price range? Well, pay attention. We found a spot where you can shop for items featured in the upscale Horchow and Neiman Marcus catalogs--at bargain prices.

A Secret Revealed
The Dallas area boasts two Horchow Finale stores where bargain hunters have been getting incredible deals for years. You'll find overstocked items from the high-priced catalogs, which means you might be able to purchase that fabulous rug after all.

The well-known Horchow Collection was developed in 1971 as the first luxury mail-order catalog not preceded by a storefront. In 1988 founder Roger Horchow joined his business with the direct-to-customer division of The Neiman Marcus Group.
