I am looking for good quality bath towels and not finding much I can afford. I will not spend $25 for a bath towel.

I want to find the color my towels should be in my dark bathroom. I have lots of light in the lightbar, but no window or skylight. I do not want a light color light pale pink, yellow or white. I am tired of medium blue.

While I loved the raspberry color of the Penneys towel, the thread count was not great. The better quality ones did not have a color I wanted. I do not want beige or tan or light lavender. I want a richer, brighter color, in a good quality towel.

Any suggestions on where to look for a good towel I can see and touch to know if it is good enough and not something that will not last 6 months? The price of towels has gotten crazy. The colors usually are the same. Brown, beige, yellow, green, blue, deep purple, black, white and grey. I want to brghten my bathroom and not darken it.

I also wash dog balls often and dry with a hand towel. I do not want something that is going to show doggie stains from the Kong ball being washed and dried several times a day. I change the hand towels daily and sometimes more than once a day. I need towels.

Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Have you tried overstock.com. They have lots of high-end towels sold in sets for about $50, you get two bath, two hand, and two wash cloths for that price.

I've been able to find nice towels at Tuesday Morning. I also have a pile of designer hand towels from Target that have done well. But, since they were purchased five years ago I cannot speak to the quality of what they currently sale.

I do keep specific towels for specific purposes. There is always a big supply of bar mops on hand for cleanup that would be ideal for all the extra cleanup chores from your dog.

Several months ago I bought a bunch of cheap washcloths at Koh's. I use them mainly for the dogs. I have not checked thier towels yet. They are next on the list.

No TJMax that I know of here.

That might be due to the rising cotton prices. Quilters' cotton prices have skyrocketed, too.

We bought our towels at Costco, but that was quite a few years ago and the colors are very limited. Target has them also. Their towels are okay.

I like Boscov's online...They have very good quality toweling at reasonable prices & lots of sales..Boscov's
You could also look around for good quality terry toweling sold by the yard and buy several yards , cut it to size and serge the raw edges...

We get the bar mops from Sam's. You may especially like those if you have to mop up dog tracks on the floor often. Great size all purpose cloth but they are also perfectly sized for mopping the floor. I dampen them, spritz with windex and toss them on the floor. Then I bear down with the rubber bristled fur broom from The Container Store to 'mop'.

No messy hands or splashes around the sink trying to work with a regular mop. No rinsing, just pull fresh clothes from the pile until you are done and wash the whole mess. If I want a deeper clean I dampen a plate full of clothes and heat them in the microwave.

I bought inexpensive towels at Walmart for our RV 5 years ago. They are almost too thick for the shallow towel rods.

I would just buy an inexpensive bulk pack of hand towels to use for the dog's feet and toys.
