Where to find galvanized flower bucket/tin pails??

Thu Aug 02, 2012 3:29 pm

Hi lovelies,

I am desperately trying to find a tall galvanized flower bucket/tin pail like the photo attached. The only online stores I can find are based overseas and either do not ship to Australia or charge a fortune to send to Australia. Ideally around 15inch would be great - and in this colour.

I have tried spotlight, ikea, bunnings, local nurseries such as flower power, bonds nursery, ebay and graysonline.

Does anyone know where I buy these from? Ideally in Sydney, but Australia wide is fine too!! Thanks so much

Have you tried any of the cheap shops like the reject shop, sometimes they have those types of things?

Oh no, I was going to suggest the Reject Shop...

What about Ikea? My FSIL works at a restaurant and she said they got buckets (I haven't seen them but she said they were rustic looking) to use as ice buckets from there.

Sorry I just saw you had already tried Ikea :cry:
Do you have a flower farm near you? They might be able to put you in touch with a stockist?

Great idea thanks! I will try that and see how we go - all florists seem to have them so that is the way to go I think!
Thanks!!

I have bought these from Apack in the past, but I work in the industry. A florist would definitely be able to get them in for you! I'm not sure if Apack would sell to the public in NSW, but you could always contact them

They sell online and I think they also have a store in Sydney somewhere. I have ordered stuff of them online, they are great. :D


Their Sydney store is in Auburn, I was out there a few weeks ago, they've got heaps of bargains!
