Where do you buy most of your kitchen tools?

I go into Bed, Bath, & Beyond and dream of buying all the wonderful stuff they have in there .... haha.

But I am a college student so a lot of their stuff feels like highway robbery. Where do you buy most of your kitchen tools (such as garlic crusher, wooden spoons, candy thermometer, zester)?

Broadway Pan Handler and Fantes Kitchen Wares both have on line stores too

I have two Kitchen Overstock Outlet stores, a Pfaltzgraff and a Corning-ware Outlet store all in one mall. But when I order on-line, Target has good prices. I have no one at home to impress with expensive equipment.

Smile Local kitchen stores

We have two excellent local kitchen supply stores in our small town. I shop at both stores.

I get most of my basic stuff from BB+B. They have a large selection of OXO products which I love, plus all the other basics. For other hard to find things I go to specialty stores or online.

BB&B for local retail stores. Also There are several stores at an outlet mall that have good stuff - Williams-Sonoma, LeGourmet Chef, etc. Online I shop for the best price and shipping cost and go that way. Amazon is a regular.

I am not a poor college student, just a poor university employee, and I love to shop thrift stores and yard sales.

You would be surprised at the bargains.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
