Hello Fellow Bees,
I thought I would throw this question out there to support some of us Canadian Bees. I am looking to make a DIY bird cage card holder for my wedding next year but have seen some outrageous prices for the birdcage alone. I have checked some of the American sites i.e. saveoncrafts.com (love) but they dont ship to Canada directly and the shipping costs far outweigh the deal that I would be getting. I have also checked on kijiji, ebay, and craigs list but didn’t find much. I was hoping to hear from other Canadian brides or any of the brides that have any ideas or suggestions they can lend. Or even a bride that wants to sell hers at a reasonable price.
~Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Do you have a Creative Bag in your area? I got mine for 30 bucks and it looked awesome!

I found mine at HomeSense. I found some nice ones at Urban Barn as well.

Thanks for the suggestion ladies! These are some great ideas I wouldn’t have thought of.

I second homesense. Going into fall, I don’t know that they’d be the most common item (but might be some left on clearance!), but if you’re willing to risk leaving it last minute they might be back in time for march. I was randomly in a chintz and co the other day and they had them, but I’d assume kind of pricy, since everything in there was.
Otherwise, I don’t know where you live, but if you’re close to a border, there’s often shipping/receiving companies right there that you can use as a US address to score free shipping and just pay a couple bucks for them to receive the package.

You can rent a box to have things shipped to in the stars if you are near the border. What do youconsider a high price I found some at a dollar plus store in Vancouver for around $30 as well. spends on size also if you attend a bridal swap some brides end up selling theirs for a reasonableprice too

I saw one the other day at Home Outfitters… I can’t remember the price, but I don’t recall it being outrageous.
I think Birdcages as Best Wishes or Card Holders are BEAUTIFUL…
Currently tho my own thinking is to do something using “classic suitcases” for our Bon Voyage themed Back Home Reception after our Wedding & Mini-Moon
Having great fun now that I’ve found a way to tie together both our Beach Destination Wedding and our Reception
Overall Theme Remains – Sea & Shore. Just that there will touches to incorporate the fact that we’ll be jetting off shortly afterwards for our Caribbean Cruise
