I am so frustrated. I am looking all over for a place that sells Terra Cotta (clay) pots to make clay people and cannot find them anywhere. These are not the usual size for regular pots for plants, but smaller sizes such as 1 3/4 inch, 1 1/2 inch, 1 1/4 inch, and 5/8 inch. If they sell these darn instruction booklets why do they not sell the pots or a link to find them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Most of the ones in the books are made with the wooden pots, or at least the ones I have and they can be found at craft supplies companies. Hope that helps.

Try craft stores. Michaels has a large selection of terra cotta pots from tiny to huge. Pricing is very reasonable too.

Craft stores or the dollar store are probably the best bet. They also sell them at home improvement stores but I don't think they have smaller sizes. Amazon sells smaller pots but they would be more expensive, especially if you don't have a prime membership.

I'm also frustrated by buying terra cotta pots in bulk. I've bought nearly all that I find and my business is growing and I need at least 100 of the 6 inch terra cotta pots with the saucers to match. They must be reasonably priced. Any suggestions on where I can find at least 100 or more? Thank you.

I have gone to many thrift/rag stores and they have them pretty cheap but dirty and also my friends store theirs not wanting to throw them away, but not wanting to use them either, and yard sales-even if you don't see them, ask, they usually didn't bring them because they thought they couldn't move them.

I have over 100 6 inch terra cotta pots for sale. I worked at a gardening center. Let me know if you are interested and how much you think is a good/fair price for them.

If you have a Hobby Lobby they used to carry those pots in all sizes.

I am looking for terra cotta pots 8" to 12" without a rim around the top. Any ideas?

By Rebecca

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

The rim is there for a construction/durability purpose. What is your need, plan? The thinner edge is more likely to chip without a rim, so manufacturers probably have no desire to make them.

I'm looking to buy different sizes of terra cotta pots, I need mostly smaller (4 inch), but I'm needing lots. I've browsed the thrift stores, but no luck. Any suggestions?

Hobby stores carry small pots. Hobby Lobby, Michaels, etc. You might be able to eventually find some in the thrift stores (I have), but sometimes when you want something very specific you may as well try to buy new as you can waste more time and money (gas) trying to find them used as opposed to just going and buying them.

Michael's craft store is a great place to find them. Just last week they were 50% off. I pickup quite a few, when they are on sale, which is often in the spring.
