Looking for small quantity of chip truck paper supplies

arubagal Apr 2, 2008 06:21 AM

We're having a themed party (drive-in movie) a couple of months from now and I'd really love to buy some of those red plaid paper food trays (1 pound, 2 pound, hot dog sizes) but the wholesalers sell them in quantities of 1,000. Does anyone know a source for buying smaller quantities? I need about 50 of each size. I'm happy to pay for shipping (or pick them up) if someone who buys in larger quantities would be willing to sell to me.

    You could try Tap Phong on Spadina, they have an aisle with lots of random stuff like that...

      eBay has what you're looking for. Great theme...

          That would be my first try.

          Cool idea. I'd love to try that.

          Hi I am a chip truck owner/operator....You can get those supplies exactly what you are seeking at the Real Canadian Wholesaler in Whitby on Glenhill Road. I believe they come in 100's per package.

            There is a store calles SKOR on Logan just south of Gerrard. They have lots of different package stuff on offer. Open to retail customers. Definitely a go to place for smaller quantity packaging stuff. (and don't be spooked, Logan is 2-way below gerrard so you can turn down it) It's on the east side. Looks like a hell's angels clubhouse

              Wow, I thought that was cash and carry for business only. Will have to check this out. Thanks.

              Costco has all these items; I think the quantities are 250, but the prices are usually lower than the others. Find a friend with a membership if you are not one.
