I bought my cast iron set from Rural King. It came with the Dutch Oven, 3 skillets, a griddle, the lid lifter. I got it for $49.00. You might see if they have a website and if they would have it available.

In the Seattle area, thrift stores are plentiful and it is very common to see old cast iron cookware for sale at really cheap prices. The thing I like about buying used is that it often already has many years of seasoning. I notice you are in Oregon. My most favorite thrift store is Value Village and I notice they have some in Oregon. Here is a link to their locations in OR.
Lodge Logic is the pre-seasoned cast iron pieces from Lodge which is one of the oldest manufacturers of cast iron cookware in the US. Lehmans Hardware sells it. Not all of the pieces come as Logic nor do all the pieces come as unseasoned.
There is a huge 52 mile garage sale this weekend on my HWY, I'll have to take a drive and see what I can find. I don't know if it's just where we are but I never see any cast iron at the thrift stores. I don't go to that many garage sales though and maybe that's where they are all at.
Thank you so much for all your help!

I agree that e-bay is a good source. But... make sure that the seller knows what they are doing when they pack it for shipping. We've had a few pieces get broken (mostly lids off of kettles) because they weren't packed well enough. Always buy the insurance.
For some reason people think that, because it's so heavy, cast iron won't break. While the reality is that it could shatter if dropped.
Before you marry someone, ask yourself, "Will they be a good killing partner during the zombie apocalypse?"
I "inherited" a Griswold chicken fryer with lid from my M-I-L; she gave it to me when she moved to a smaller house. Hubby completed my Griswold set via e-Bay. He had good experiences and fortunately everything arrived in tip-top shape.
I've seen lots of cast iron at thrift stores and even some pretty reasonably priced pieces in antique stores.
I bought cast iron skillets at a store around here called "Big Lots"-not sure if you have them in your state-inexpensive prices-decent quality. I also bought some cast iron cookware from K-Mart-Martha Stewart Brand-good. My MIL got me some"LOGDE" cast iron cookware-it's excellent (was preseasoned). I believe, if not mistaken, she got the "LODGE" from Tractor Supply CO. I have a wood-burning cookstove up at the cabin and that's all I use on it. Hope you find some! Take Care.

For the best deals in cast iron go to the appliance repair places, people often move and forget their cast iron stashed in the stoves lower tray. The appliance people will pick and save what ever they want, the rest is available for sale.
Or get closer to the source, by contacting the scrap metal haulers, the ones that specialize in appliances, they will have long trailers. Catch them at gas stations or wait until 12:00 noon and ambush them waiting for the scrap metal yards to re open after lunch.
Scrap metal yards close for lunch because it takes all to be constantly present for it to run smoothly. The sellers line up at the gates. The sellers are rough looking crowd, thats because they don't have enough money to be prim and proper, but they are fully human otherwise.
Bringing a 6 pack to trade is common... Just make sure its cold. BT,DT

My son just bought me a cast iron cook pot that was made in the USA. He got it at Tractor Supply. Very nice pot. We've already used it three times for cooking over the fire. We cook outside a lot, especially in warm weather.
