    Does anyone package their eggs in anything other than cartons? (baskets, etc?)

    A cute basket with a fabric bottom would be cute! Are you packaging them for egg customers?[​IMG]

    Yes, planning to.. [​IMG] I've never sold eggs, fairly new to chickens and eggs really. That would be cute..
    Would love to figure out something cute and cost effective. Thanks for the reply! [​IMG]

    I use the little brown bags with a plastic square cutout in front. They are usually sold as coffe bags I think. They close at the top by folding down and folding over the edges. I have 8 chickens that lay all different looking/colored eggs and everyone thinks they are really cute with the different eggs showing through the cutout. I don't decorate the bags at all but you definitely could!

    What a good idea! Do you have a picture of one of the little bags with the colorful eggs?
    That sounds cute AND cost effective!

    I did it quickly, so you know you can arrange the eggs better! Sometimes the color doesn't come through on these pics but I have green, medium brown, and on pinkish-cream colored egg showing through the window. I also uploaded a pic of just the bag. It is so simple and inexpensive and I don't have all these egg cartons sitting around taking up space!
