I'm not at all unhappy with my D3200, I just think a mirrorless would be more suitable for me.
I just switched to mirrorless and I also came from a D3200. That's one of the reasons I switched. The 3200 is still small and light to full frame but once I read up on mirrorless and learned more on it I made the switch.
i'm of the mind that unless the plan is to make photography a profession, mirrorless is probably the better choice for those that want to get into photography (not that one can't do professional work with mirrorless, just that mirrorless can have something of a premium to do so in terms of lenses, effort, accessories, etc.), i think people just getting into cameras underrate how much size the size can affect how much you shoot, its basically the reason people don't really rock with point & shoots (compared to smartphones) anymore. it isn't that dslrs are crazy huge, but that many mirrorless cameras can be so small, and it can be the difference between deciding whether or not to take the camera with you on the regular...

Where would be the cheapest place to buy this camera?
if you're comfortable with it, i'd definitely peruse your local craigslist ads; also while not having the native lens selection but as good or better in terms of output are the sony nex/alpha series, and the samsung nx series
