Anyone know of a vendor that sells reasonably priced satin sheets?

Simply search Google for "satin sheets" price. The reasonable issue is the real rub. I bought two sets of rather inexpensive ones ($40 each, as I recall) five years ago. Fairly lightweight polyester; have the sheen of satin, but don't have the weight of what most people think of as satin. They photograph OK, but it isn't as opulant-looking, IMO.

(BTW, Victoria's Secret used to sell sets at about $100, eons ago.)

Again, you get what you pay for. Or don't.

I found some cheap satin sheet knock-offs at Tuesday Morning and Big Lots. They cost about $25 for a queen size. They're not real satin, but they look good on camera. That's Jenna wrapped in fake satin below.

Bed Bath & Beyond has them ... a little on the pricy side, but it's easy to find $20 off coupons that make them about $70.

Problem with mail order is there is a LOT of crap out there that people lable as "satin" sheets. Some about as course as a windowscreen. They are one of the few things I will not buy mail-order or off of eBay. You DEFINATELY want to lay your hands on them and touch them before buying to make sure you get what you need.

I bought one set for 125 then went to the fabric store and decided it much better to buy many different colors of satin there instead of being tide in to ONLY black, red and champagne colored sheets. Check your local fabric store before you buy!

Overstock.com, do a search. I bought two satin down comforters, king sized, for about $60 each. I have to believe that you could find satin sheets for less than that. Good luck shopping! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
