For some reason I keep forgetting to post this, but about a week or so ago I bought a satin pillowcase at WM for just $3.94! It does have a zipper, but it's over on the side, so it's not in the middle. Also, they come in these little clear plastic purse-like containers and they must be aimed at a very young crowd because they come in all sorts of crazy prints. I lucked out and found one that was solid print, hot pink on one side, purple on the other. But the rest of them were all kinds of pring, from tiger to flower, crazy shapes, etc., and they were reversible with a different print. Anyway, I've been loving mine so far, and it's nice and thickish, so not flimsy. Great price too!
Where in WalMart did you find the satin pillowcase?

Thank you NC for bringing me back to curly!
Sorry guys, I didn't see the last two replies before! Well, I should have told you that they were at the END of one of the aisles that carry sheets,etc. So they weren't on the actually shelves with the rest of them. Since they come in their own little purse/bag, they were actually hanging up on hooks at the end of the aisle.
Were they at the end of the Juvenile bedding section? I swear I was just in Wal-mart looking at sheets and didn't see anything like that. If they were in the juvi section though, I wouldn't have seen them because I don't look there. I will have to look closer - $3.94 is a good price if they're of good quality. Every satin pillowcase I've bought at Sally's has pulled. :x I think it's because they shrink in the dryer and don't fit the pillows anyhmore, so they stretch and pull.
Thanks for the recommendation - I'm ready to try something new.
Ok, I dug out the container that the pillowcase came in last night and I hadn't even realized it but it's the same one that Brio referred to in an earlier post. It's called Miss Behavin' and it says SATIN on the front, but then it says 100% polyester. I never would have known it was polyester because it feels very soft and smooth, really nice actually. So I'm not sure how they can call it satin if it's 100% polyester?
Shoot I had no idea satin wasn't polyester. I thought it was. That's why I'm holding out to replace my now ruined silk pillowcases with the real stuff (dog barf, it wasn't pretty)
On second thought maybe I should just get a silk head wrap huH?
As far as my (granted, somewhat limited) fabric knowledge goes, satin is a weave-many threads over the top of the warp thread, which is why it snags so easily. It's typically made from polyester/rayon/silk, anything with a bit of a sheen since it shows it off so well. (Also why it's so prone to snagging and looking ratty.)
I've only seen silk satin once-in a wedding gown fabric shop. It's lovely.
Pricey, but lovely.

I'm not suggesting that's what it's made of I just see a lot of polyester called satin. The definition I found is it's made of rayon or silk and it's glossy on one side.
I see the word used for just the glossy on one side type of cloth though.
ETA: oops looks like I was posting at the same time. Honestly I didn't feel the need to repeat what was already said well
