I have a few asian stores in my town- but none carry Bento boxes-there is a new age metaphysical shop in my area that offers like three or four bento boxes, the smallest one is the least expensive @ $28.75 so with tax it's over $30 for one,  I did find a couple of websiites that had good prices on bento boxes


currently has a sale for three bento boxes for $10.99 it's the same box in three colors red, blue, yellow there is also a set of two bento boxes for $7.99 they only offer priority mail at this time, but even with the shipping it works out to be around 6.67 for each when you purchase the three and around $8 a piece when you order the set of two


offers a few boxes at a good price and


offers quite a few items at good price

 I was reading in the discussion swap thread that many people don't have local access to bento boxes and accessories, from what I read there are only two or three areas in the U.S.  That have access so a majority of us would have to shop online to get bento supplies- I hope this helps

I plan to sign up for this one as soon as I get feedback in the swap I am in now.

I sell bento boxes and accessories at conventions, so I may have some interesting things to offer.   Cheesy

My Swaps:

Will do personal swaps to receive fabric yardages. Also, if you are looking for costume work, I will work in trade or swap. I have an available Singer Pixie, is anyone interested?
