WHERE to BUY Ceramic/Appetizer Spoons???(Toronto)

Hi everyone
A friend of mine needs to buy those 'white ceramic appetizer spoons' for an Xmas Party

I checked out Kitchen Stuff Plus (online) and they don't seem to have them
Crate and Barrel has them (online)........but need a place closer to either downtown OR
Preferably a place in Vaughan or Richmond Hill would be best for him to go to

Any suggestions, much appreciated:)

      Agree with Chinese places.

      If, however, you/(s)he want SPECTACULAR (i.e. expensive - set of 6 $12) versions, try here:

      (About 8 locations in downtown Toronto)

        We got 60 for $46 tax included from Tap Phong this past Friday.

      2. You can get them at Pier 1 as well.....but they come in a box set with a serving tray....

        1. Porcelain spoons are $0.99 each at Bowring.

          They have different styles and sets, but that one is the basic one.

          1. WOW Thank you Thank you Thank you ALL!
            My dim brain couldnt think where to get
            ALL your suggestions......PERFECT!
            Merry Christmas!

              You inspired me - I decided I needed these little spoons for a mid-meal sorbet palate cleanser. I went to the bowring's across from Sherway and was very pleased to see the box of 6 (without tray) was marked down AND an additional 20% off at the cash register. The set with the tray was just 20% off. And if it matters, the kitchen store on the east side of Yonge, south of bloor has an amuse-bouche set of 13 pieces - 4 square glass bowls, 4 spoons, 4 porcelain spoons and a tray for 12.99 (I think - it was a very busy cross-town shopping day).
              Anyhow, thanks for the inspiration and for the shopping tips!

              1. re: badrockandroll

                Just to clarify - these spoons are Chinese soup spoons not appetizer spoons. However if you want to use them as app spoons, recommend that you find a smaller version so that guests don't have to struggle with a huge bite.

                Chinatown is pretty much the cheapest place to get these spoons and they do come in various sizes including ones for kids.

                1. re: wano

                  The white spoons pretty much sold out at Bowrings
                  But they have the same style in BLACK
                  Called the store....these are selling out fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            2. I would check out Dinetz on King St. W.
