Looking to get around 2-3 dozen pieces of driftwood...smallish pieces around 4-6". Anyone know where I can get this reasonably cheap?

LFS pricing is definately out of the question

I got some off eBay for a good price. Takes a lot of picking through garbage, but the good stuff is out there...

I've had the best luck finding my own floating in lakes and rivers. You'd be surprised at the nice pieces you can find and it's a lot cheaper than buying it. The large pieces can be difficult to boil but if your only looking for smaller ones its easy enough to boil them on the stove in a big stock pot.

I'll nevr pay for another piece of driftwood. I like to go out to the streams and hunt for it. Actually the sinkers are better than the floaters. The sinkers are usually hard wood which is what you want in your tank.
