Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!


Hope everyone had a great holiday season!

For those of you with shops...where are you getting good deals with "gift-y" items? Looking for more upscale-y item vs. chatchkes. Any great suggestions? Also looking for baskets/trays. Not like catering trays but cute trays to display chocolates on and then wrap in cellophane. 

On another note....also looking for packaging for large strawberries for Valentine's Day? Suggestions?

Believe it or not, you can peruse the Dollar Store type places and come up with all types of ways to present chocolates: trays-plastic, paper, chrome, small/large mirrors or pretty pictures of flowers or nature scenes etc. mugs, toys, little boxes etc. - there's no end if you think creatively. I collect little teddy bears to include in a baby tray and small plastic baby items that can be hot-gun glued to trays to make them cute. Red plastic heart-shaped bowls and trays are probably out by now for Valentine's Day. There is no end to the choices and they are so-o-o inexpensive. Hope this helps.

Thanks Esther! That's pretty much what I have been doing up until now, but now that I have some retail space, I'd like to get my costs down even more, so that I have room to mark up at a more appropriate price.

For me, I have found great success at the pharmacy stores like CVS or RiteAid....picking up items that are significantly marked down or the dollar aisle at Target, but I want to step it up a little bit and sell some higher ticket items. 

Good luck with your endeavors!
