Hello everyone, I'm in the mist of opening an etsy store, as well, i will be selling mine nad my sisters jewelry at a local mall this christmas and i'm curious to know where you get your bags/boxes/whatever to ship/package your goods in?

As i said, i'm selling jewelry and have yet to find good prices on bags (i'm thinking organza would be best)  or boxes, or whatever. 

i would love to know who you buy from and also, how do you ship your items to make sure they are all snug and safe? 

Thanks for reading!

believer10- I haven't gotten special boxes for my stuff, which is not jewelry, but have just shipped in USPS flat rate envelopes(cardboard with bubblewrap/tissue paper. If you find some great source for boxes/bags, I'd love it if you'd post it!! Thanks!

Yep, I'm also a fan of the USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes/envelopes (I always use the boxes) for shipping.  They're free at the post office!  Inside the box I always send my items neatly wrapped in tissue paper and with one of my business cards tidily affixed.

the tissue paper with a business card is a really good idea.  i've received things like that and i love the look of it.  Unfortunately i am in Canada and not the US so we dont have USPS boxes, i know we do have some prepaid rate envelops but i think they are a lot to ship.  thanks for the responses!

These are basically the only companies I use. If I want something immidately, the wedding department of my local card and party shop might have something interesting.
