    Good morning,
    I'm in need of some (20 to 25) quart to half gallon sized mylar bags. I'd like to find the thickest possible. I want to use them for on shelf storage, no buckets.

    I've tried two or three ebay sellers, none of their's are impervious to light. I've tried a few on line retailers too. With all the on line retailers the shipping is twice, or more, the cost of the bags.

    I know what I'm looking for has to be available without paying an arm and a leg for shipping. If any of you have any suggestions where I can go to find smaller bags with reasonable shipping costs I'd appreicate any suggestions.

    Thank you in advance for any word of wisdom,
    Moose

    You can buy larger bags and cut them down. Just seal up the cut ends. It might be the cheapest way.

    Amazon.com has many many different selections of mylar. The last purchase I made was for the 5 gallon bucket type, 10 bags plus 10 2000CC O2 Absorbers for $24.95, FREE SHIPPING. The vendor was OakTea International and they have lots of different sizes/quantities at quite good prices, all available at Amazon.com. I was very happy with the purchase and had it in my mail in 5 days.
