I've also gotten most of my dishes from thrift stores and re-sale shops. I got a wonderful Calphalon SS grill pan used on Ebay for $35 shipped. It's huge and with a little Bar Keepers Friend, it looks brand new.
Outstanding! I am eyeballing a Viking 30" range on CraigsList at the moment.

Sorry, Mr. Gadzooks. But you won't let an "asking" price stop you, right? I've been known to watch items for months before I made an offer and sometimes I get lucky!

Oh, I'll try to low-ball him first, and then be ready to start dealing. Alright! Bread's out of the oven and cooling. Time for a trip to the post office.

I don't live any where near a good thrift store or good garage sales. Theres Ebay but by the time you pay shipping it's usually no longer a bargain.

My best find is an "Acme Safty Grater" Picture here Vintage ACME Safety Grater

I have my Grandmothe's but the 2 center splines broke and fell out, which makes it a little difficult to use sometimes. I had been searching for a new one for years and found one at the local thrift store a few months ago for 50 cents.
