Inexpensive leather seat covers may be available at discount stores such as Costco, at local flea markets and tag sales and through classified ads in local newspapers or bulletins. Websites such as Overstock.com, junkyards and salvage lots may also be good places to find leather seat covers.
Junkyards and salvage lots are full of vehicles that broke down and were towed away or were in accidents that left the seats and seat covers undamaged. In many cases, the vehicle owner has no need for or interest in the seat covers. People who have seat covers for vehicles they no longer own may wish to sell them by posting ads in coffee shops, on supermarket bulletin boards, or in church bulletins and online sites such as CraigList.org. Yard sales, garage sales and flea markets are also good places to find inexpensive leather seat covers, especially if the seller is willing to negotiate the price near the end of the day. Discount stores may also have overstocked or discontinued styles of leather seat covers.
