Buying Small Jars and Bottles


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):

Their site isn't very fancy, but I've always been pleased with their products and customer service. Best of luck!

Hi. Have you tried a dollar tree? They say that you can buy in bulk. Kind regards, Crystal
Oh. What type of beauty supplies do you make?

I do not know how much this may help but if you have some empty pretty candle jars with the lid wash those thoroughly. These cute little jars can be used for so many things. carla

Question: Shopping for Small Bottles or Jars for Handcream

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)

Do you have Walmart? if you do, or something equivalent to, check their craft section. (08/20/2009)
