I don't buy much, but what I do buy I try to buy as local as possible, thereby saving shipping fees and more importantly supporting the local business.
Also, don't give up on Ebay. Sometimes you will find some deals there.
I have also bought stuff from Cumberlands. Never a problem.
I wish we had a local place in central Illinois, but I'm not aware of anyplace that doesn't sell just Duke....
Thanks for all the suggestions guys.
