Mail order places?

Is there a recommended place with a lot of different cross-stitch patterns for sale, either a catalog or website? I used to deal with a place out of Virginia that no longer exists (to my knowledge). And frankly, eBay has been a disappointment - one cross-stitch pattern I ordered came on four separate sheets in B&W and I can hardly read it. (It was partially my fault; I should have read the small print to see that this was a COPY not a new or even used professionally printed chart.)

Barnes and Nobles carry magazines from England and Australia which have so many neat patterns. Check garage sales, used book stores that carry magazines, some thrift shops also carry them, just type Counted Cross Stitch on google and you will be surprised how much is there.
I have been downsizing my stuff and gotten rid of lots.

www.123stitch is the best place I know and you can't beat how speedy her shipping is and she is very nice to deal with and has everything you could want and if not she can get it. Mary
