Baking Tins-Calgary

Does anyone know where to get large tins to put Christmas baking in? I've tried a couple of dollar stores, but the ones they have are too small.

    Try restaurant supply stores, Hendrix and Russell's have larger ones but they might be pricier than what you have in mind.

      Superstore had them in 2 sizes, $2.00 and $2.50 for the round ones.

        Depending how big you need....Dollarama in Marlborough Mall had tons when I was there today.

          Walmart has some too but I didn't like the design.
          Has anybody seen square ones?

            They have square Christmas boxes (heavy duty not the cheap "gift boxes") at the Dollarama but not tins.

              Real Canadian Warehouse Club. Two locations in Calgary. Lots of restaurant supplies.

            Thrift stores/Value Village. I had a lot of luck finding great tins in good shape from there last year.

              Williams Sonoma offers gift boxes that may (or may not) be monogrammed. Perfect for Christmas treats! http://www.williams-sonoma.com/produc...

                Williams-Sonoma.com doesn't ship outside the US and unfortunately I don't remember seeing these boxes in the Chinook Centre store when I was there last week.

                Don't forget Michael's craft stores - lots of designs and shapes last I saw.

                  The Christmas-y ones are 30% right now--not a great deal (the dollar store will be much cheaper), but there were still many available when I was in the Signal Hill location today.
