I have done both.  I have purchases a plane from Lowes and tuned it up and I have purchased many old Stanley planes on eBay.  You have to be careful buying on eBay.  some are beyond repair.  I have been able to get some great planes there though.

I do agree, however, that you are better off restoring an old plane than tuning up a bib box store plane.  The amount of work is about the same but the old planes feel much better when in use.
