Where can I find this tin / container


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm making candles for my brother's wedding as favors. I was trying to think of something unique (I only do containers right now...haven't ventured into votives or pillars yet). I saw this container and thought it was very pretty. Anyone know where I can get some like it? Thanks for your thoughts!

That is one adorable container. If you find something similiar, can you post it? Where did you see this one?

That looks like one of two tins I saw at our Walgreens Pharmacy recently. I think they were empty and didn't already have a candle in them. Walgreens usually only carry a few of each item. Back a few months ago I saw a container there that I liked and talked with the manager and told him I made candles and asked if after I purchased two and decided that I wanted more if he could order them and he told me yes. I ended up not using that container so I don't know how long it would take for a special order to come in. Good luck finding it.

Edited to say I think they were .99 cents each.

Thanks guys. I'll be on the hunt for it :) I found it by googling wedding candle favors. Since I don't do votives or pillars, I want to make them a classy, nice container favor. I loved those tins. Thank you, Bizzy for the other link. I do like those too. I'll let you know if I find the tins :) Thanks guys!

P.S. Thank you, ScentsandMore, for the Walgreens tip. I never thought to look there...I'm off to check it out :)

I have searched with no luck then I thought, that container looks like one you would get engraved. You can likely find this item from a engraving supplier.

Here is one product I found.

http://www.laserbits.com/ this one you have to click on pewter on the left then at the top click on pewter pen/pencil cup

Maybe there is wholesale engraving supplies. Maybe it's not called this but engraveable items/supplies, but I do think I'm looking in the right direction.

It kinda looks like the cotton ball holder that I have in one of my bathrooms. I think I got it at Linens & Things in the bathroom accesories department. Just an idea. HTH

Thanks, Yes they do and here is what I found...

I think this is a better direction to finding this container. Google wholesale bath Accessories Chrome

Here is one thing I found under wholesale bath Accessories Chrome

WOW!! After searching these sites I found all kinds of unique and up scale items that will work for container candles. Glass, Crome, other metals, creamic etc.

I know this is not what you were looking for but this second pic just looks so classy with frosted glass & pewter.

This has just given me a new avenue to look for containers I can use for candles.

Here is a site that offers wholesale http://www.artesignimpex.com/bathroom-accessories.html

Awesome! I hadn't even thought about bathroom accessories. Although, I don't want to pay $11.99 (to make 50 candles! Yikes!). I didn't get very far searching for wholesale engravable tins, so maybe I'll google around and see what I can find on the bathroom accessories route. LOVE the ones you found CandleMan! The frosted one with pewter lid is awesome. But, I always end up liking the most expensive item out there :) There could be 600 items on sale and I always manage to fall in love with the one item stuck in the 600 that's not on sale, LOL :)

Thank you guys for hunting around for me! I do appreciate your help!
