Local Stores To Purchase Mylar Bags and Ox Absorbers?
« on: January 21, 2010, 03:40:23 PM »
Anyone know of a local store (obviously, local to you, may not be to me - so perhaps a national chain) to purchase mylar bags and Oxygen absorbers?

I suppose I could mail order, but I always like supporting businesses in my neighborhood: entrepreneurs first, or at least those that are putting my neighbors to work.

Alternatively, is one of the show advertisers a decent source/price?
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bike. Then I Realized that the Lord doesn't work that way, so I stole a bike and asked him to Forgive me.

Great question!  Just yesterday I was just looking in the yellow pages, but could not find any 'supplies' vendors.

I'm going to call on a local coffee roaster (that's owned by a local couple) and see if he would sell some mylar and/or O absorbers.  They roast and supply to local restaurants and coffee shops.

We also have a local spice company that blends their own spices, etc.  They might have some supplies, also.  I've even thought about asking about his old product bags (that I can cut down to size, and reseal).

There's also a local food coop and some local health food stores that repackage.

We also have a national ice cream plant in town.  They might be a good source for 5 gallon fg buckets.


Any other suggestions?

I've seen them at a local military surplus store...might be a good place to check. But, I'd probably just buy them from Safecastle.
