    I would like to buy a large number of small Ziploc bags; about 3" x 5" or so. It would make it so much easier for preparing small plants for shipment, especially Utric plugs.

    Where can I find them?

    Ask your local drug dealer, they'll know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm sure any of the dealers on the forum will be able to point you in the right direction. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    But seriously, a good place to look is an office/art supplies store- not sure what you guys call those types of shops in the US. I usually get strange looks when I stock up on mine.

    I have found a variety of ziploc bags at a local store that sells paper, envelopes, office/mailing/party/food-container supplies. They sell all kinds of sizes of those bags. But I'm sure you could find any kind you wanted on eBay. eBay has everything! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    eBay was the ticket!

    I found 1000 2-mil 3"x4" Ziploc bags with a white block for labelling for $4.99+$10.75 shipping. 1.5 per bag is pretty good!

    Michael's is here in California as well, so I guess it could be considered a big crafts supply store, but if I wanted things in large quantities at a very cheap price, then I'd always go to Costco. They have things at huge quantites. I just needed a simple bottle of shampoo and ended up buying three bottles at 64 fl ounces each. (They package the merchandise together, so you'd have to purchase all of them at once.)
