Cheapest source for bulk artificial flowers online or in Chicago?
March 14, 2019 2:56 PM   Subscribe

I'm hoping to purchase enough artificial flowers to cover a surface of about 4 square feet. I can go to a physical location in Chicago and surrounding areas or purchase online. Lowest possible cost is my primary consideration (not quality). Any suggestions for where to go?

Both Michaels and Joann have apps that give very good coupons (40% off one item, 50% off a category, sometimes even things like 20% off your total, including sale/clearance). 4 square feet is not very much -- you might be able to find flowers on sale or clearance, then use coupons to knock the price down even further. Both also have buy online, pick up in store.

Dollar Tree carries artificial flowers. Their online store ships and does in-store pickup, too. Also Walmart & Oriental Trading Company. Not sure about cost comparison for those; I've pretty much only ever bought dollar store flowers to tear apart for craft projects.

Check out 'wholesale fake flowers' on Amazon. I saw 100pc of pink daisies for $6.95, and lots more deals like that.

Or look on eBay for 'wholesale lots fake flowers'.

What's your timeframe? AliExpress has fake flowers even cheaper than Amazon, but delivery can take up to two months.
