Thanks for the links Smiley So far the sites I found things on are Japan based, but at least it gives an idea of stuff I like. That allthingsforsale site looks great, but by the time I started looking at their items, I was tired from browsing the other sites.

I'm going to go check all our stores around town sometime this week just to see what's out there now. This is so fun!

Can't join in this time around, but Amazon has some Bento stuff (Based in Seattle, so totally American). 
I've also found http://www.vitacost.com/medport-fit-and-fresh-kids-lunch-pod to be useful (If you sign up on Vitacost you get $10 free to spend, then just pay shipping.  If you don't sign up, it's cheaper on other sites) for Bento. 
I've also found lots of picks at the Dollar Tree.  I got a pack of like 200 in like 5 colors with hearts on the top just the other day.
And, I get my tiny spoons from my favorite Easter candy.  Milka chocolate eggs come with 4 eggs and 2 tiny spoons.  I always just use one and wash it, then save the other.  If you know anyone who works at Baskin Robbins, you could also probably convince them to smuggle you a few of those pink spoons.  They are pretty awesome.

I hope that gives you guys a few ideas.

Ah, sorry you can't join, PeachieClean  Sad


Oh, yes, picks. Check baking aisles everywhere! Ditto for silicone containers, shape-cutters, food-safe pens and more. Travel and camping sections often have great containers that can be used for sauces and such.


5 more days left to send in your questionnaires, folks!  Smiley

PeachieClean: I've found my stuff at the dollar tree too. I just noticed yesterday they have my favorite 2 compartment containers again... which is great, as I just broke the fork in my old one last month. And thanks for sharing the link Smiley

And... Yaaay! Partners in 6 days!!! I'm so tempted to start buying things already but gotta waaaaaaaait...

Just FYI for those of you looking for supplies - If you live in or near a large city, most have an Asian district of some sort. I am near the Bouston area and found a great version of a Dollar General store. They had tons of bento stuff, but it wasn't a bento store per say. I bought lots of stuff for my twins lunches - boxes, molds, picks, liners, cups, cutters, etc for under $20.

It may be worth doing a general search of stores like this in your area.

Organizer's Note ~

I'll be closing sign-ups sometime later tomorrow (the 25th) or early the next morning. So, there's still time to get your questionnaire in! Smiley Partners will be posted as soon as I can after that.

I'm so excited and looking forward to crafting!
