Least expensive place to buy spice tins?

Jacquilynne | Oct 26, 2013 01:08 PM

I'm looking to buy about 75 small metal spice tins. I don't need magnetic backings on them, since I intend to stick them to a magnet but they do need to be flat bottomed.

My ideal would be 2oz, 4oz and 8oz square tins with metal tops (not see-through) something like these: but round tins in similar sizes would also be fine (again, ideally not see-through tops).

I can find them from a variety of suppliers in the US for 60-75 cent per jar, but then shipping, even before brokerage fees ends up being prohibitively expensive. In kitchen stores where I've found them in Canada, they've run about $2.50-$3 each, which seems excessive.

I haven't had much luck finding them here, though, and I'm wondering if people know where they might be available. There weren't any at Tap Phong last time I looked. The ones I found at Creative packaging didn't have flat bottoms and the ones I found at Luv2pak were $3 each and not great sizes (I could have those two stores mixed up, since I often forget which is which). I feel like this is something Dollarama used to carry, but I haven't seen them there recently, either.
