Where to buy outdoor furniture?

deck furnitureJonathan (@MrDraper63) asks via Twitter:

Almost finished with new deck and looking for outdoor furniture with @elisdraper. Any suggestions for good local deals?

Now that we're at the end of the season, maybe Jonathan and Elisabeth can score a deal.

So... got a suggestion about where to look, which place has good selection, or where to find good prices? Please share!

After scouring dozens of places, my hubby and I finally found a nice patio set on sale at Home Depot. This was a couple of years ago, but the price was right, and it was precisely what we were looking for (i.e.: not wicker).

I know it is a big box, but...just bought a fantastic, reasonably priced conversation set made of eucalyptus online/by phone from Home Depot. There's not too much selection left this time of year in regular stores, so online seemed my best bet and I've been searching for weeks/months for something not too expensive but not cheaply made.

I was a little scared to buy sight unseen, but reviews were great and accurate, shipping was free (and good thing, because the boxes were huge) and I mentioned I had a Lowe's coupon (you can get them on ebay), which they honored for an additional percentage off. I had to finalize the transaction over the phone because of the coupon, but I think I got a great price on furniture that should last a long time. If it wasn't great, I liked that I could potentially return it to a brick-and-mortar, rather than deal with some company's online customer service.

Craigslist... especially at the end of the season!

Best Fire on Central has some nice stuff- we got a table there that we love.

better wait to take delivery after Irene!

I just got an email flier yesterday from Hewitt's advertising outdoor furniture on sale. They have numerous locations so you may be able to piece something together from multiple stores.

Another vote for Home Depot. My boyfriend and I looked around at obscenely priced patio furniture for about a month before stumbling upon a reasonably priced set there. Huck Finn's also had some decent options.
