Sourcing pecans and glass-bottle Coke in GSP/WNC
For my life's work, the anniversary party, I need a ton of small glass-bottle Cokes. I had been planning to acquire them at Sam's, but now they are out of stock. Can someone give me an idea where to find them (and at a reasonable price?) I need 75-100 bottles.
I also need scads of pecans. I agreed to make Mexican wedding cookies for a friend's wedding, so while I"m at it, I'll freeze a bunch for the parent's party. Plus I need to make scented pecans for nibbles. Where do you recommend I look for a large quantity of cracked, non-stale, pecans, at non-Whole-Foods prices? Any of the famer's markets?
to my chagrin, i'm at the sam's here fairly often for my wife's business, so i can check locally for the cokes, if you like. you're up here enough that i'm sure we could arrange a swap as long as you have a week or two to play with.
as to pecans, sam's is also where my wife buys those. she used to mail-order them, but found sam's prices to be better for the whole ones (mail-order was only cheaper for halves/pieces).
hope that helps, & let me know if you want me to check for the cokes.
