I am looking for 5x5" glass blocks. Where can I find them?
Craft stores-Michael's & Joann's, home stores-Home Depot, Lowes etc.
I am looking for the Decoblocks, the type with the wide opening on one side. Anything out there in the Tucson, Arizona area?

If you have Hobby Lobby in your area, they carry the glass blocks priced about $12.00 each. They frequently put all glassware items on sale for 50% off, so you can pick them up for $6.00. They also have 40% coupons in the local newspapers on Sunday - or go online and sign up for their emails and you will get the 40% coupons weekly.
I bought two at Lowe's on Ina near Thornydale just after Christmas. They were with the Christmas stuff, but not on sale so I don't know if they're seasonal or not.
Where can I buy the most reasonably priced glass blocks? I am located in the 08096 area code.
My daughter buys them at either AC Moore Crafts or Michaels. She has made some really cute items with them for baby showers.
Where can I buy 3 1/4" by 3 1/4" hollow glass blocks that are fillable from the top?
Try a local craft store or home improvement store. I know they had them at Michael's craft store before Christmas a few years back.

Where can you buy the glass blocks for the crafts? I know that Lowe's carries them, but I was wanting to buy several. Thanks.

You could call local glass/window glass block installers/suppliers. Whichever one has the least expensive price simply ask the manager if they'll give you a discount for buying in bulk. Hope this helps. (11/22/2009)
Where can I buy small glass blocks over the internet or from some other company?
By Tina Kirby from Lady Lake, FL
Purchasing over the internet would probably be really expensive because of high shipping charges due to weight. Try Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. and if they don't have them let your fingers do the walking through the yellow pages and call local window companies. Someone is bound to sell them in your area.

Do you sell or could you tell me where I can buy the glass blocks in 3 x 3 inches or 5-l/2 by 5-l/2 inches? I love your website, but thought you might be able to help me with sizes. Thanks. TK
Best thing to do to find glass blocks in your area is to call local window/glass companies and ask them. I am not sure, but Lowe's or Home Depot might carry them so it would be worth a try to call and ask. I know there are companies that will ship factory direct, but I'll venture to bet the shipping costs would be outrageous. Just let your fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages to start.

If you are talking about the ones you put lights in, you can get them at Lowe's Home Improvement Sore when it gets closer to Christmas. (06/03/2009)
