    I have looked at alot of fireplace shops and I never realized how expensive these things are. I wanted the post that
    held a poker, brush etc. I also found out on these threads that I should have an ash bucket. Anything else you could
    recommend and a good place to buy that is not so expensive?

    thankyou

    You are going to need the fireplace set, ash bucket and gloves. You can spend a few hundred or you can:

    1. Go to Wal-Mart and get a decent fireplace set for fifty bucks.
    2. Go to the hardware store and get a five gallon galvanized can with lid for fifteen bucks.
    3. Go to a farm store and get a pair of gauntlet welding gloves for ten bucks or so.

    Just don't sit the bucket on anything flammable while you are filling it or after you take it out. Which you shouldn't with a fifty dollar double bottom bucket either. They get just as hot.

    Thanks those are some good websites. I've been looking online for a few days now have seen so many I think I need to take a break.
    I am going to check out walmart also, I didnt know they carried that kind of stuff. I also checked Target online but it looks like they only
    carry the stuff online. Do you think HomeDepot or Lowes would carry it in there stores, I was thinking of checking them sometime this
    week. Thanks for the info

    Lowe's and HD are starting to put the stuff out for the season right about now. It will replace the lawn mowers and barbeque grills on the floor over the next month.
