Where are places I can buy a garment bag?

We're going on an extended trip next week and need a garment bag for some of our clothes. I don't want a luggage set, I have one of those. I'm just looking for a bag to hang my family's taekwondo uniforms in to keep them looking neat and tidy.

I tried samsonite.com and do NOT want to spend hundreds of dollars on one.

  • I know they usually come free in a luggage set. Even cheap luggage sets like walmart. Are you flying? That will count as a carry on. You might do better to just pack them and steam/iron them when you get there. (I don't know if you can iron those?)

  • I'd try the luggage department at Macy's (or another department store with a comprehensive luggage department.) That, or a luggage store.

  • I would wrap them in something like a towel or plastic so they don't get dirty and gently lay them across the rest of the luggage. You could easily put them on hangers then cover with an outdoor trash bag or 2.

  • I've seen really nice luggage (including garment bag style) for cheap money at Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Homegoods.

  • Shopgoodwill.com!!!  Here is a Vera Bradley one currently bidding at $15


    http://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?ItemID=12975220


    Course, you add shipping, etc. but still cheaper than retail


    Just put in "garment bag" in the search parameters - there are quite a few afforable ones in good shape on that site.
