Picked up four chafers that were new, never used, at a thrift store for considerably less than new from a retailer would have cost. Two are standard, one is a roll top, and the fourth is set up to hold two pots of soup or other liquid.
Also ordered a couple of chefs' coats from Happy Chef. I ordered short sleeve royal blue coats with 'Epicuriosities' over the breast pocket. We also picked up a couple of royal blue aprons with the name, in case we need to hire a couple of people now and again.
