    Cheaper finishing salt?

    Does anyone know of a place that sells finishing salt for a decent price. I have been buying some here and there but I'd like to buy 4-5 kinds and not spend a fortune. I know its specialty so it's gonna cost but figured I'd see if anyone has seen something I have not. Thanks
