I would like to know if anyone has a good used greenhouse for sale (cheap) or knows where to buy a new one or maybe a kit. I live west of Fort Worth.

Here are some online. I really like the last link, albeit a long address...

I don't know if the organic garden centers stock cold frames, but I'd bet they could order one for you. Check the suppliers under Organic Sources at the DirtDoctor.com link above. I would think places such as Northhaven Gardens, Redenta's, and Rohde's would be good candidates, although those are a ways from where you live. It may be that the short time cold frames are used/necessary in North Texas might lead you to build one yourself. You can find plans for different variants on the Web.

pfpmod-
Have you thought about checking saalvage yards for old wood frame windows that could be set on top of the frame on a raised bed? This would act as a cold frame and could easily be removed after the cool season.
