    Target has their 6 foot tall bookcases on sale this week for $26.They're actually pretty nice.I always get the black ones because everything seems to stand out more.I have 13 of them lining my basement with all my stuff on them.

    Ebay:
    10 gallon aquarium tanks.
    they are cheap, stackable, and...you won't have to dust.

    weird, but they look neat, too.

    i would suggest plastic utility shelves, like at Lowes or Home Depot, but they aren't exactly cheap.

    Get your daddy to paint your ugly old bookshelves black and pink. Then decorate the back of them with cute fan art.

    Srsly tho, just buy something used at a secondhand store kind of place if your need something cheap. Then you can spray paint it whatever colour you want. (Probably black, so your figures stand out more.) I think Walmart or Canadian Tire would probably have some cheap plastic shelves. They don't look nice though, and they're typically holey to save on plastic. How desperate are you to have shelves?

    Not yet, technically, but Zellers is now owned by Target.

    Find a Zellers that isn't switching over into a Target. They'll likely be putting merchandise on clearance and even selling their shelving and such.

    Also, don't forget about JYSK. I'd totally forgotten that place even existed until someone on here brought em up (probably in a thread like this one actually), and I've heard of them carrying glass enclosed cabinets for under 100 bucks that're similar to the Ikea ones.

    (this is it)
