Go to Ikea for cheap kitchen towels, Gloria's to build a cake and Surfas for affordable cookware. These are my favorite places to stock up on kitchenware.
If you ever find yourself needing to build an extravagant cake or make a few hundred batches of candy, this your supply store.
Prices aren't super cheap, but this store is like every cook's heaven.
A great place to go for stocking up on industrial-quality cookware and/or rare oils, chocolates or jarred sauces. Their cheese selection is great too.
I mean, it's Ikea. I go here specifically for kitchenware like napkins, straws and really inexpensive kitchen towels.
I love Sur La Table. I love this Sur La Table even more because of its location. Really convenient and once a year they offer free knife sharpening.
