Online chess stores
http://uscfsales.com/Main/mainpage

This is the link to their BASIC chess combo. It is more than sufficient for a beginner:

This one costs $3 more and has MUCH better pieces (they're heavier so they don't fall down--this is what we have at school)

Whatever you end up buying, buy a board with GREEN squares, not black.
