Hi all!

I hope that this post isn't off topic too much, and that I am allowed to post it. Mods - if you feel it's inappropriate, please feel free to delete!

 

I am on the hunt for retro popcorn bags for a customer, and I can't find them anywhere! I would like to stock them in my shop for other customers as well, so I want a large quantity, like a bulk order. I've searched numerous times, and can't find a supplier anywhere - I just get links to Etsy shops or party supply businesses who sell in small quantities (like 10 - 20) for a huge mark-up.

Have any of you seen a supplier in your travels? Please?!? I will link a picture for what I'm looking for specifically! I figure if anyone knows, it would be someone here!

Thank you for your links! But I'm looking for an actual supplier, or someone that sells them without the mark-up, so no Etsy sellers (since then I have to pay outrageous shipping for being in Canada).

When I was playing around with manufacturers of popcorn bags a lot of them have minimums of 1000 bags.  Another has smaller batches but pricing was $5 for 50.  Not the design you were looking for but the price for the etsy sellers doesn't seem that bad unless you are wanting a thousand bags.

AIt's not the same design but you can get 1000 for $22.50.

Another option would be to contact a local business that rents popcorn carts and see if you can buy the bags they supply in bulk.

BTW you may want to edit your thread title to be more descriptive.

This site has 1000 bags for $22.50 or $27.00 depending on size. The design is different from your picture..

In regards to that etsy listing...500 bags for $60 puts them at .12 cents a bag...that seems quite reasonable.

Here are a couple of links for canadian concession suppliers, i don't see any retro bags like you are looking for but if you contact them they may be able to help you.
