Hello, ThriftyFun members. I hope someone can help me with this. I make my own skincare products and would like to give these as Christmas presents to family and friends. Would anyone know of a supplier of pretty little jars and bottles to put these in? It needs to be a supplier who would sell them in small quantity. Hope someone can help me. Many thanks.
I don't know how economical it'd be to get shipping to the UK, but I've ordered supplies from Majestic Mountain Sage before. Here is a link to their containers page (click on the kind of containers you're interested in): http://www.thesage.com/catalog/Containers.html
Their site isn't very fancy, but I've always been pleased with their products and customer service. Best of luck!
Here are questions related to Buying Small Jars and Bottles.
I am making homemade handcream. I need to find 1-2oz bottles or jars to be used as a Mother's Day gift for my students. I would appreciate someone helping me to solve my dilemma. I went to Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and Michael's already with no success. I do have 22 students, please give me ideas at an economical price.
I have so many cute little bottles. I save all kinds of bottles that things I've bought come in. One from Carmex, one a little bigger that had something to soften rough heels. There are a lot of makeups that come in little jars. After using the contents I just wash them, soak off the labels. The lids can be painted with craft paint. (08/20/2009)
Do you have a local "freecycle"? Maybe you could post asking for empty baby jars and then could decorate them yourself, or if you know of someone with a baby that could maybe save them up for you? (08/20/2009)
My thought, too, was Freecycle. You're in the UK, so I don't know exactly what you have, but try recycling centers or thrift stores that have community support behind them. If you can, put up a notice that you are in need of small jars without baked-on labels. I used to collect small wine bottles, not because I know what I'd do with them, but because it seemed a shame to toss them. I figured vinegars or dressings for gifts if I ever got around to it. Then on Freecycle someone wanted small bottles for an Alice in Wonderland party for a child...and I had 18. People save, even though they don't know why, sometimes. Good Luck. (08/20/2009)
