    HELP!!!!!!!!
    We stopped by our local TSC this morning so we could purchase some more of these buckets and discovered that they no longer carry them. All we could get were plastic. For our U-pick blueberry operation we have found that - 1 - plastic just does not hold up to the job and - 2 - our customers like the metal buckets better as they have a more professional appearence and they do not break like the plastic ones do. Does anyone out there have any viable suggestions as to where we can obtain more????? Thanks.

    Try a craft store or hobby shop ... the bigger the store the better your chance. I see them often in the larger stores. Hope you find some!

    I suspect you're really looking for galvanized steel buckets. Those can be found at regular hardware stores. Stainless steel buckets will be much more expensive. If you have to have stainless steel, look for a supplier that sells to folks who still milk by hand. Lehman may be a source.
