    Okay thanks, I'll look around.

    Any downside to buying these from wholesalers?

    socal. Theres a lot of stores nearby like linens n things, bed bath and beyond, but I don't know anything about buying blankets and stuff so I don't wanna go in and pay rape prices if I don't have to :hs:

    i know there is a place online that has those silk ones online i actually just saw them at the home show this past weekend..they are quite pricey im not sure what you want to spend but i could get you the site when i go home, they are GREAT duvets...but range from like 200-300 bucks. otherwise if you cant really find a wholesaler in the area and shop online try overstock.com :dunno:

    Back in November Linens N' Things were closing like crazy near where I live. I bought a Hungarian down comforter that was $400 for $100. Also nice bed sheet and duvet cover with high thread count. These have been very comfortable and look great. I would definitely never pay full price for them though.

    If Linens N' Things start closing stores in California, you should take advantage. Strange...I thought they were liquidating ALL their stores since last October.

    if you are comfortable with ordering online, overstock.com is key

    ive been contemplating ordering a set from overstock but im a bit weary, just because going to canada is so expensive i ordered some other bedding stuff in the past and have been disappointed with what i got and its way too much hassle to return. but yeah.. a plain duvet overstock is prob his best bet.

    best bet is retailers like bed bath and beyond, linen and things, and sales @ dept. stores. If not try online on overstock.com type retailers. But remember online you can't get a real feel for what the feel of the material is like.

    Yep, that's why I didn't really want to buy online, I wanted to feel it before buying.

    I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and I couldn't find anything that fit a king size bed :ugh: Only California King. Same thing at costco, wtf.
