Source for cheap cookie tins?

Kelly the Baker Nov 9, 2009 11:27 AM

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.

    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.

        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.
