Source for cheap cookie tins?

Does anyone know of a good place to get tins of different sizes for putting holiday cookies in?
I am in Culver City but looking to stock up for holiday baking gifts. I prefer plain colors vs. holiday designs and am willing to go anywhere in L.A., or online. I just can't believe the places that charge $4 each for them.

  1. Honestly, last year I foudn them at Big Lots (in Van Nuys). There were 2 tins in a set, either round flat ones, or tall cylinder ones, for $3. I used the bigger ones for teachers and mailman, etc and the smaller ones for coworkers.

    1. Big Lots, 99 cent stores, Michael's

          Ikea just put up their "Holiday Tent" and they have loads of great cookie tins.I was at the Burbank store Sunday.

      1. I buy mine from specialty bottle online.They have some great looking ones in all sizes from spice tins on up. You can do your own labels for the finishing touch.
