Bento Box, Anyone??

For residents of BHM and STL:

So I have been looking into lunch box options for my starting 1st grader and I am intrigued by the Bento craze. I found a place today where you can order in bulk and the price is a lot nicer that what I have been finding elsewhere. Thing is, I don’t want to order 24 Bento Boxes and get stuck with them, so I thought I would see if anyone out there would be interested in putting in an order. They normally sell (individually) on the website for $23 plus shipping.

I figured it out and I would sell them for $18 total.
Folks in Birmingham - I could have the boxes in town by the last week of July. You would need to be able to pick them up from Briarwood Presbyterian Church. Home delivery is not part of the deal!

After reading the info below, let me know if you would be interested – I need 22 folks to make it happen.

Below are details of what you get:

I have no idea what these things are...but after reading all of this I totally want one (or actually 2, one for each kid)! BUT, I can't do pink or I should say my boys will not be happy with pink. What color would you be ordering?

If you get enough response to order the carton, i would love to help you out. I think they are adorable and even would be even moreso with a little creative painting. I will take 2.
