Hi, everyone. Please can you spare a moment to make a referral?

I'd like to find a good source for quality disposables in bulk. Once in a while, I need to purchase about 200 pieces of one-piece disposable wine glasses, and the best price I'm able to find locally is 16 glasses for $8.75. (Duny brand, at Smart&Final) They don't give discounts for large quantity orders.

Instawares has a very limited selection of one-piece disposables, either the ones that are $70 for 500 @ 5 oz each (wincup... which I feel are probably too flimsy) or the ones that are about $50 for 50 glasses (a&e... which, for $1/glass, I might as well rent!)

I'd like to stick to a cost of about 30¢ to 55¢ per glass... and that includes factoring in tax & shipping.

Does anyone have a good suggestion or a favorite vendor? I'd appreciate your suggestions.

P. S. I'm not interested in joining Jetro or Restaurant Depto for the twice-a-year I need this kind of thing.
