Hello Phil~

To be honest.. and NOT meaning to "put down" any vendor that visits the forums here.

But to really your better off making them yourself. They are QUITE cheaper.

Of course the cost wll depend on WHAT EXACTLY you are using them for.

Are you using them just as display.. or are you acctualy wanting them to hold weight ( as in a persons weight).

Do you want FULL SIZE coffins?

You CAN make them for as cheap as it is to make walls for a a haunt ( 25$ -30$ ,depending on wood demand) to expensive as as much as your willing to spend, or your budget will allow).

Of course if you want any other "embellishments" on them, those would cost a bit of extra. But would also be able to be self done at a minimal cost.

Just some things to think about.


Edited to add: I made quite a few FULL SIZE(s) coffin out of scrap Plywood,OSB (flake board), Luan, and particle board(dedpending on need) and 1x3's and 2x4's this coffin was not really holding much of any weight .. and has been used MULTIPLE Times , either on ground level, or on a STURDY shelf assembly and HAS been taken apart and re configured to eliminate weight when necessary.

I have ordered successfully from this site before and I was happy. I think with the volume you want you will be fine going this route. This is really close to what you are looking for

These are wood but beautiful and a great price

And these I have fallen in love with and am considering buying a container of then selling them because of how beautiful I think they are.
I just think the wicker looks very elegant and victorian, I can just see them covered in cobwebs and beautiful, they really set the time period in my mind.
I hope I helped a bit or at least broadened your options

I have someone I can get them from. I will call them and see if they have any for sale. I get them for about 300.00 a piece. Send me a PM and let me know if they all have to match, can they have some damage, etc. Heather

Shovel, flashlights, get all the coffins you can carry! Maybe a two-wheeled cart too? Mud tires on it.
Not afraid of a little physical labor are you? To Save all that money?

Phil I have connections for new ones from a dealer. Usually between $300-350 depending on type,style etc. With that quantity I can probably get them cheaper. I am located in Missouri. If you interested PM me and I will see what I can do.
