Hi guys plan to take some product shots indoors. Lighting is bad in the office. Plan to take pictures of clothes on a mannequin. Any places you guys know where I can get good lamps to assist?

Budget probably around $100.

can just buy a continuous light kit from one of our mass sellers,

if really on budget type, can just get a couple of 4' florescent tube plus housing, hang vertically it on step ladder as light stand
plus some large pieces of Styrofoam board as reflectors, large piece as in 4 feet by 6 feet.

nobody will know how is your lighting set up like when you do it correctly.

You can also consider those LED lights, traditionally used for video but I have seen many photographers use it for still photography

Hi guys, thanks for the suggestions. Have settled with the budget fluorescent tubes solution.
