Don't forget about your local thrift stores. They often get items in great condition and sometimes new donations from businesses. Look for the non-profits where your purchase often generates funding for a great cause. Everyone wins.

Trying a thrift store before regular retail stores is always a good game plan. You are open to buying both things you need and other fantastic items for a fraction of what you would spend new. One of my favorite pieces of clothing is from a thrift store - and Eileen Fisher wool jacket that I bought in perfect condition for $8. Other great items - cook books, a high-end press pot, a s/s lined copper sauce pan with a lid from Williams-Sonoma in perfect condition for under $10. Black chargers - that had never been used. You just never know what you're going to find. Even though I didn't NEED my wool jacket or my copper saucepan, I have gotten loads of use and enjoyment out of both.
