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

NoFixedAddress Dec 8, 2011 11:08 AM

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:)

    Tap Phong or any Chinese place with cookware/kitchenware.

      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)

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

          Porcelain spoons are $0.99 each at Bowring.


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

              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!

                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.

                  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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                  Cleaned out the Bowrings at the Eaton Centre
                  Got BLACK spoons, (super classy) same style....and not the big big app spoons
                  SO easy to pop food in yerrr mouth:)
                  PS....they go for 99 cents each at Bowrings. And are purrrrrrrfect :)
