Place to buy driftwood?

Anyone ever use aquariumdriftwood.com? Any other good sources for driftwood? I want some driftwood (cheaper is better), and I'd really prefer to order an individual piece that I can see a picture of before ordering. Ideally, I'm looking for some type of centerpiece that fits into a 55g and that either has a cave or one I can chisel a cave into for some bristlenose plecos.

Aquabid.com has worked well for me in the past. I see some good deals.

Thanks to both of you for the suggestions. I have been browsing Aquabid. I stopped by PETCO today and they had a large piece of mopani wood on sale and miss-marked (in my opinion) as medium. I picked up a 29.99 piece for 7.98, tax included. It's a beautiful piece weighing 10-12 pounds(!) and full of tannins. I'm soaking now until I get a change to autoclave (steam sterilize) it a few times where I work.

I'm also headed my grandparent's house. They have an old farm pond that is currently dry. There are some really nice stumps in there and I'm hoping to spend my visit self-harvesting some driftwood! Hopefully I can find some native plants as well (only using them after a serious quarantine period!!)
