Question Sources for stone tile

I want to do about 220 SQ/FT with this or a similar stone in a shower & bathroom. Can have some color variation.

Where can I get the best prices ? So far it's been about $20-25 per SQ/ft. I don't mind ordering and shipping for the right price. Any of you pro's have excess from a job?

I bought some pebble tiles off of ebay from the following vender and was very happy with them. They have about 10 or so different colors. They are $50 for an 11 sq/ft box so they are also super cheap. Not sure what shipping would be as I picked them up localy (Los Angeles)

Question

Thanks sportskid1 They had exactly what I was looking for and even with shipping from California to Michigan they beat all local prices by better than $800.

Now who to buy a 32x60 Kerdi shower kit from???? best price so far has been ebay. I wish John had them in his store I'd gladly get it from him, the education I am getting here is invaluable.

The Kerdi kits are in one of the Tile Store vendors, and it helps to pay for the maintenance of this site as well. Their prices and service are better than most. I put one in over Christmas at my mother's house.

Yep, I already went to the TYW store and found the link, Tile-Experts.com has very good prices and will get my Kerdi purchase.

Are the Rondec & dilex corner trims worth the cost? Do they eliminate the need for caulk at plane changes in the shower and bathroom ? Anything to lower repeated/problematic maintainance chores is good

Any opinions on the surface mount Water towers/shower panels that have rain heads and body sprays built into them? They are about 1/2 the cost of building a custom shower from individual components, plus the better half likes some of the styles out there.
