Where do you buy good, inexpensive furniture?

I need to buy some bookshelves to hold my board games - ideally I'd like 2 of them, 33" wide x 12" deep or so, the taller the better (i.e. not just 4 shelves).

I seem to remember someone telling me about a great furniture store, I think it was on Broadway, which had good furniture at a discount price. I don't recall if it was used or something, and I don't recall where exactly it was or what it was called.

Anybody know what I'm talking about? Or know where I can find some nice bookshelves at a decent price? Please leave a comment if you do... thanks!

Edit: This is what I'm talking about! Is $183 a good price? I think I might go ahead and order 2 of these... Still looking for comments though, if you have any!

If cheap is priority there is always the used option (thrift stores, craigslist, etc.).

Or you could go online, maybe to or something.

Thanks for the comment! is a good idea, but it might be tough to find a matching pair of bookcases on craigslist (though I guess it doesn't hurt to look).

I think the bookcases I linked are a little nicer than the Ikea ones - they better be, at twice the price!

... In addition, the Ikea bookcase of comparable size is less deep than I want, though only by 1", isn't available online, and appears to be out of stock in the Tempe store.

Mark, that same exact bookcase is actually $6 more expensive at - believe it or not!
