Raft Gear Supplier?

I recently acquired a 14 foot achilles with frame and some 10' oars. Need lots of stuff but trying to do it on a tight budget.
Where do folks love to buy straps, throw ropes, kid pfd's, drop bag, dry bags, other necessary equipment.
I would also love to rig an umbrella for shade for the kids I will be taking along, any advice or ways to make that happen would be greatly appreciated?
Feel free to offer advice, I've rafted before, never had my own set up and am sure I'm missing a few things and will learn a ton pretty quick.
First test trip will be pumphouse to see what works and doesn't, then a family trip on the Chama in June. Starting out fairly low key I hope so as to learn and adapt quickly!

If you are looking used, the buzz and craigslist are good sources. There are several companies here on the buzz that sell online and support the buzz.

AAA Inflatables and Down River Equipment are good Denver local rafting stores.
