Summer bike ride

Hi!
I'm brand spanking new to riding and have recently noticed how cohesive the bike riding community is...I love it! Anyway, I plan to go on a cross-country bike ride this summer and have been spinning at the Y like crazy and riding "for real" whenever I can. My problem is that I don't know where I can find nice panniers. My city only has about 2 bike shops and they don't really know much about panniers...they only have a couple for sale. anyone know where I can find a nice selection for a good price?
Thanks!

Lots of panniers out there.

I like ones with a solid attachment, and not stretch cord.
