    Boston round bottles in Canada

    I'm trying to find amber Boston round bottles in Canada. The only sources I have found accept only full case orders. No one seems to sell broken case quantities (1 to 10 bottles). Does anyone know of a Canadian source?

    Buy the full case and double the caps, preferably with the inverted cone inserts. Caps get lost, broken, cruddy. Clean the sealing surface and threads before capping for much less trouble.

    Benoit, I ordered a bunch of them in various sizes from Photographers Formulary last year and it was quite cheap, even with shipping.

    Michael, thanks for the info. I had already looked at the Photographer's Formulary but the only shipping info I found in their catalog seemed to say that the only service to Canada was "air parcel", which was very expensive. Were you able to get a ground transportation rate?

    I was able a few years ago to buy 12 32oz/1L narrow mouth boston amber bottles and invercone lids them from a 'Richards Packaging in the east end of Mississuaga.

    They were kind enough to sell them to me, an end user, as a case lot. Usually they sell things by the pallet. I picked them up, as they usally sell stuff FOB at their loading dock.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Also look for essential oil suppliers. They sell small to 500mL sized amber galss ones quite regularly.

    I have bought from a Mississuaga based direct seller. I cannot recall thier name, but it is in my soap making supplies file at home.

    They did do shipping, but I am pretty sure it did not include Canada Post. Again, I went at lunchtime to pick it up.

    Benoit - now that you've refreshed my memory I think you're right. I'm probably remembering it as cheap shipping because I had lots of other stuff packed with it. You might try calling them and asking if there is a cheaper shipping possibility.
