I'm looking for the most cost efficient terra cotta pots available. The size and shape don't matter. Any thoughts? Yes, I'm a dumpster diver and have retrieved some there, thoroughly sanitized them, and they are perfect.

I agree with Dollar Store, but here in Houston, Texas, USA we have a store called Garden Ridge.
They have everything you could ever think of from bedding, to planing, pictures, bath, silk flowers, and plants, wedding accessories, huge Christmas selection, baskets, statues, etc.
I don't know where else they are located in the USA though, sorry. (03/19/2009)
I found the "mother-lode" of terra cotta flower pots last year at Garden Ridge also. They were very inexpensive. I see from the Garden Ridge web site that there are 3 stores in Ohio. If you live near one I would definitely check them out. Good luck. (03/19/2009)
How about Old Time Pottery? Is there one in your area? Good luck. (03/19/2009)
I find terracotta pots at yard sales, thrift shops, and dumpster/curbside.
But another good way to recycle is freecycle. It's where people offer items they no longer use and you post what you need. Check out freecycle.org for a description of what its about and a link to your local site. It is wonderful. (03/22/2009)
