Q: I am making some baked goods to give as Christmas gifts to my co-workers and I am trying to find plain bakery boxes to wrap them up in.
Do you know of any good vendors I could get them from? All the places I've found online require you buy a case of 250 boxes. I certainly don't need that many!

Editor: Molly, a few suggestions. First of all, go to JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels; craft stores like those usually have a selection of bakery boxes in the cake decorating section. Also, Sur La Table has a selection of bakery boxes (pictured above) but they are usually pink.
Also, try PaperMart. They also sell in bulk, but usually you can get slightly smaller quantities, and sometimes the cost savings of buying a big order is worth it. There's always next year! Or you could find someone to split an order with.
And finally, be sure to also check your local restaurant supply store, like GFS or another large supply retailer.
Readers, do you have suggestions for bakery boxes, or for any other packaging necessities for holiday treats and gifts?
