Help with old Rit powder?
I'm looking for a place/person to purchase old Rit in powder form.

Looking for Blue and Red mostly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have red for sure but you can check any old Grocery store or Drugstore. Most chain supermarkets clearanced them so I usually dont have luck there.

I don't know if Harris teeter is in Boone but they have old RIT around here

I remember reading/hearing the number 10 means old and 11 means newer stuff...where is this number located? I have some old RIT [powder] and cannot find a date or proper marking anywhere - but it definitely is the old kind that works on discs.

it's stamped on an end of the box...i've got some older stuff that was pretty hard to read

There is a 5 digit number stamped on the box/printed on the lid. The last 2 numbers are the year it was produced.

If you want RIT I would suggest that you search the New Rit formula thread in the techniques sticky for "dye fairy". LoPan found a gal in Tx with a boatload of old Rit that she's selling cheap. I have no idea if she has anything left, I got 16 boxes from her :D. Some of 'em have become favorite marbling/painting colors, evening blue, aquamarine, and amethyst to name a few.

I've seen a ton of Scarlet and Royal Blue around here

and of course a ton of brown and wine :D

Check out the Teeter and fabric stores thats where I had the best luck. I still have a few Teeters around me to check out, looking for green (not dark) and a brighter red (more like the new Cherry Red)
The old boxes also have the solid color print as opposed to the stripes. makes it easier to spot.
