Small empty hot sauce bottles?

Hi all,
First post on the Bay Area board (recently moved back up from SoCal after two year exile from my beloved Northern California for grad school).

So I made some hot sauce recently (bing cherry-chipotle and white peach-cardamom-habanero) and want to send it out as gifts to family and friends. Has anyone seen any small (3oz or less) hot sauce bottles anywhere locally recently? Peninsula or South Bay preferred. I have already checked places like Cost Plus, Target, etc. along with County Resturant Supply in San Carlos and no luck. I know I can order online from big commercial suppliers but would prefer a local source as I only need a couple dozen.

  1. Have you tried Rainbow Grocery? They have a large selection of bottles b/c of their large selection (of liquid even) bulk items.
