    I've seen animal cookie cutters sets, letters and seasonal shapes at Michaels Arts & Crafts (container of about 25 plastic cookie cutters - and cheap too), though I don't see much on the website now. Out of the places already mentioned, Spun Sugar and then Sur La Table have the best selection of loose metal cookie cutters. I've seen cookie cutters in the "Super" Long's Drug Store in Oakland too.

      They have a bunch of cookie cutters at Cook's Blvd in Noe, 24th at Castro.

        $9.99 for a 100 piece set at amazon.com:


        Just search in amazon for many other options.

        You might also try (he said, holding his nose...) the giant Bed, Bath and Behemoth in SF, but call before you make the schlep.

          I tried that a month or two ago, and they only had the most basic shapes: circles, squares, and gingerbread men.

          The Sur La Table in Berkeley has them so I am guessing the SF locations would carry them as well. I purchased an elephant-shaped cutter (metal variety) a few weeks back.

            The WS ones look really cute, though, and the part that imprints looks pretty snazzy. I have 'em on my birthday wish list. They don't seem unduly price-y to me, but, then, I don't get out much.


            Sur La Table has tons of classic tin cookie cutters in every imaginable shape.

              I love flipping throuth the cookie cutter stall at Sur La Table. There's always a new shape, and they are usually about 99 cents each.

                We've gotten a lot at the Berkeley store. Huge selection.

                Yeah, W-S has expensive ones (Sur La Table may too). If you call Spun Sugar in Berkeley, you can check to see what kind they have, because they usually are my go to for baking supplies (and they would certainly be cheaper than W-S), though I don't know if you can get to Berkeley.

                  They're quite pricey, but I've seen them at Williams Sonoma. They even have a set that resemble the animal crackers I loved as a child, the kind that came in a small box with white string.
