    Go for the 1 pint takeout boxes. That’s what we used and they worked out SO well.

    Also, if there are any asian grocery stores around you, check there for takeout containers. We got 100 for $10 at one in St. Louis.

    We’re doing muslin bags, which can be stamped with anything. 🙂 You can find them plain on Etsy as well as pre-stamped.

    @MM423: Honestly, you just put up a couple stacks on the table and then fill as people take the boxes. They really don’t take up as much room as you would think. I’d go 1 pint over 1/2 pint because if you have any bulky candy, it’s going to take up a lot of space. We had several candies that would not have worked out well in a smaller box.

    @MM423: Depends on how many you are buying, who you buy them from, etc… but I’ve seen them as low as 17 cents

    I second the 1 pint boxes like zippylef said…I had originally ordered the 1/2 pint boxes and never used them…way too small for our candy!

    I ordered those bags from the knot, and printed my own labels for them 🙂
