I'm set for cookie jars, but I have been looking for cookie tins that nest. I can't find them anywhere. Around Christmas I need 10 cookie tins the rest of the time I need around 2. Has anybody seen some? -- anonymous commenter
I'm only finding a limited number of options in the USA; one is this set of Christmas geese nesting tins.
Someone on eBay is selling this set.
And while Emma Bridgewater cake tins - in a number of patterns - come from the U.K., you can find U.S.-based sellers for at least some of the products/patterns. (Note: You can also get square nesting tins, in the polka dot pattern - at least from the U.K. store.)
Now, if you're OK with buying from a U.K.-based company, the options expand quite a bit. This is the only 4-tin set I found.
This polka dot set is available from many stores, such as Fields of Blue, Blendboutique, and Letterbox.
The Nigella Lawson tins, in cream or black, can be found at BlissHome. You can also get the cream-colored ones from Heal's.
The Emma Ball set of two nesting tins can also be found on the John Lewis web site.
And you could also look at the Cats Sleep Anywhere tins, which I wrote about back in February 2009.
