In December 2008 I visited one of the local thrift shops and found lots of snowmen items to buy quite reasonably. As a matter of fact I paid only $4.00 for all the snowpeople pictured below, plus a few other items as well.
Soft snowmen of cloth, etc.
Five resin figurines
Ceramic, glass and candle figures
Carved wood and painted wood snowmen. The one on the left has a sticker, "TJ CARVER/ Real Wood Carvings"
Tiny whimsical snowmen, including one plastic wind-up walker
A green ceramic stool to place a figure on, and snowman-decorated box
