Question Where to buy test tubes?

Where is cheapest/best place to purchase the test tubes (with stoppers or lids) that everyone was using for candy last Halloween and Christmas? Am looking to purchase US and quickly hopefully. Thanks!

I don't know if this is the cheapest place to buy them since I've never bought any, but PTI sells them here: http://www.papertreyink.com/pack_trendytubes.html

Hope that helps!

Last year I ordered 12 tubes from www.testtubesonline.com - the xl baby soda bottles were the perfect size for me. Caps are not included so don't forget to order those too, they didn't offer corks for these when I purchased. Prices were very reasonable, and the product shipped quickly. I think their prices were so low that shipping cost pretty close to the product cost. LOL

I've seen them at two of the online retailers that I frequent:

www.allthatscraps.com HERE ($2.50 for 3) and HERE ($3 for 3), and at www.ellenhuston.com HERE ($8.49 for 8 tubes). Hope this helps!

Those do look cute. The XL ones are only in blue right now. Only the smaller ones are in clear. They are certainly economical though! Any other options anyone?

Reading the dimensions, the smaller ones are only 4/10 of an inch shorter - looks like the width is the same since the same cap fits both types. I was more concerned with the width than the length.

I just bought some from an SU demo in a yahoo group. I think that she had a ton left over that she was trying to get rid of. If you PM me I will give you her address. Of if you only want a few, I have about 15-20 of them that I can sell you.
