Best place to find an inexpensive, solid brown duvet cover?

Asked by SamIAm (8690points) May 30th, 2010

The best I have found is on Amazon for about $40. I am looking for a solid, chocolate brown duvet (as a secondary, doesn’t have to be anything special… just to cover my second down blanket).

I cannot sew, but do you think it would be less expensive to purchase fabric by the yard and have it sewn together with a zipper added on?

The one I have I got at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It’s solid brown corduroy. I don’t remember how much it cost but it was about that much. It was on sale and they have those wonderful 20% off coupons that never really expire even though it says they do. So you might want to check there if there’s one near you. And the damn things, duvet covers are hard enough to get on a down comforter so if you don’t sew I wouldn’t advise trying to make one yourself. Plus fabric is expensive.

Wal*Mart.

You local Charity Thrift store. Department stores unload their unsold merchandise by donating to the re-sale shops that support United Way, Salvation Army, and Goodwill.

Sometimes you can get a good sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond although their regular prices are not so cheap. In answer to the second part of your question, I think for the yardage you’d have to buy, you wouldn’t save much money, if any, by trying to make one.

On a pre-existing solid brown duvet. Make an offer.

Have you tried Overstock.

$40.00 seems like a good price for a never before used duvet cover in any size bigger than twin. You’ll be surprised how expensive durable comfy cloth is from the fabric store and how much you’ll need . When I’m shopping for something specific I google it and use the shopping feature, save the best prices and then see locally what my Ross, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx and Anna’s Linens has.

if you could sew you could buy two flat sheets and sew them right-side together but the cost of that plus a big zipper would be about 40 dollars, so just buy one.. be careful with thrift shops because nowadays you really have to worry about bringing home somebody’s bedbugs. 40 dollars seems like a reasonable price – but check Walmart first.

I got a couple of duvet covers on sale at Ikea one year for $25 each.

If there is a Big Lots store in your area, they also have bedding sales at rock bottom prices. But it’s made from cheaper materials.

But if you limit yourself to just that one color, it will be much harder to find a bargain price no matter where you look.

Also realize that whenever there is a sale on bedding anywhere, Queen size is the most popular bedding size and usually the first sold out.

If you’re willing to be a little more flexible on color, you will increase your odds of a bargain price.
