when we did this craft club thing years ago we need the tins, but they had to be empty. we couldnt get empty ones so we bought full tins and poured the mints into a big bag. BIG MISTAKE. we still have little mints that no one wants from 2 years ago.

I was just thinking, if you live in England you can buy Barkley's mint tins, they are pretty much the same and that's what I've used.

No, i live in the US but i just don't want to buy any and if someone had some lying around instead of throwing them away they could give them to me.

They sell Altoids over here - I've seen them in both Morrisons and Tescos.

The back of the tin beside me says:

Callard & Bowser International
PO Box 229
Plymouth
PL6 7WT

So you could write to them, try to scrounge a few empties?

Or maybe try their (American) contact page?

.  Be sure to mention that you will be publishing an iBle that will feature their product(s), encouraging others to purchase said product(s).
.  Since they are such popular hobby boxes, don't be surprised if the company cannot fulfill requests for free tins. But they'll never say yes if you don't ask.

They are a lot cheaper. If you can't find them for free, you can get them a lot cheaper
