I needed business envelopes the other day and there was a card store where we were shopping, so I popped in there, hoping they would sell regular paper goods/stationary too.  I asked the cashier if they had business envelopes, thinking she would point me out to where they were or would tell me they do not sell them.

Instead, she says sure, she'll look, and pulls out a box from behind the counter and let me go through it - turns out they often have envelopes leftover from their cards - extras or sizes that don't fit current merchandise, and they are happy to give them away rather than toss them.  I ended up getting a bunch of long envelopes in very pretty colours - I am sure the insurance company won't miss my blood red envelope amongst everyone else's plain jane white ones Cheesy

Anyways, this may be helpful to papercrafters or anyone who needs envelopes.

My mum used to get her envelopes from the newsagency too, they didn't give them away, but a big bundle for 50c isn't too bad.
