One thing you will learn about bakers and cooks, is that they are addicted to their wares. Although we may not use them as often as we want, we buy them because we become attached to them....some of us instantly.
Although some people may give away some small items, it is unusual for any baker/cook that I know to give away anything.
You might try discount stores, thrift stores, and even ebay. I bought a lot of my bakeware off of ebay, simply because it was about half priced from the retail cost in stores.
