If your willing to pay $1 each, you have a lot of options...
Imo, for a used-condition casino set, one of the smartest moves is to ~rent~ your $1 chips from a real casino (Vegas or elsewhere, doesn't matter). It does requires a $1-per-chip down payment, but is totally refundable when you are finished using them (resulting in getting to use the chips for free). And readily-available, depending upon your location.
I have the Chips Casinos and they are pretty when cleaned up but the ones I got (late) were rode hard and put away wet.
Here are some on eBay
Haven't seen any for quite awhile
