ISO reasonably-priced bakeware

What's a good source for reasonably priced bakeware - cookie sheets, muffin pans, etc. I was at BBB today and the prices seem a bit high. A mini muffin pan was $22.

Restaurant supply, Amazon etc...

Real professional grade stuff from restaurant supply doesn't cost as much as you'd think, often cheaper than even Walmart. For instance 1/2 sheet size baking sheets for cookies and bars, $5 each at my restaurant supply. Loaf pans $7, cake pans $5. They are likely to last you a lifetime. We use these in a commercial environment and they get a lot of abuse and still hang together.

Using 40-50% coupons from craft stores can get you great deals on bakeware.

I've purchased a number of items at Fantes. Their selection is awesome, along with all the helpful staff.

Which of the restaurant supply brand names have a good reputation?

Honestly the brands that restaurant supply items regardless of the brand will be pretty tough. If your store carries multiple brands the workers there will tell you the chef's favorite.

I'll have to look around and see if there are any restaurant supply stores near me. There used to be one a couple of blocks away but it closed :(
