Default Please help me find this stuff:

Hi all. My sister and I are coordinators for our big local festival, in charge of the kids craft area. Anyway, there are a few things we need to buy a lot of, that we can't get from Oriental Trading. I'm hoping some of you ladies might have good sources for the following:
White paper "lunch" bags
The small wooden spoon-type sticks you get with ice cream cups
White wooden beads (around the size of my fingertip)
Black Licorice pieces
The candy that is shaped like Legos

Thanks for any help you can provide!

For the white paper lunch bags, I would try www.uline.com. They've been a great source for me for that sort of thing in the past. Good luck!

I had to get the wooden ice cream spoons for a whole grade level one time and contacted a local ice cream distributor. I got them real cheap from them.

Oh dear! It is too bad you don't live in KC! I go to this place called "US Toy/Constructive Playthings" all the time for these things. It is a carnival toy place. It also has teacher supplies. Their website is http://www.ustoyco.com/ if that helps. Good luck!--Jeannie

The lego candies can be really expensive at specialty candy stores but I have actually found them cheaper in the bins at some of our local grocery stores cheaper. I have bought them at Winco, Bel Air and Ralphs before...they are adorable for baby favors
