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.

Dollar tree has them in tiny sizes 4 for $1.00 some have holes in the bottom some do not. If you need a hole in them soak the bottoms in water for 2-3 hours then using a massenary drill bit drill through the bottoms to make your own holes.

I just bought some at Michael's craft store, I bought them on sale for 3 for a dollar. Ask them and they can order them for you as well!

Have you tried gardening centers? I found them there when my craft and dollar stores were all sold out. I am a fan of Sunshine Crafts, they seem to have everything and at a reasonable prices especially for bulk.

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.

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

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 for the most cost efficient terra cotta pots available. The size and shape don't matter. Any thoughts? Yes, I'm a dumpster diver and have retrieved some there, thoroughly sanitized them, and they are perfect.

Where Can I Find Inexpensive Terra Cotta Pots?

I agree with Dollar Store, but here in Houston, Texas, USA we have a store called Garden Ridge.

They have everything you could ever think of from bedding, to planing, pictures, bath, silk flowers, and plants, wedding accessories, huge Christmas selection, baskets, statues, etc.

I don't know where else they are located in the USA though, sorry. (03/19/2009)

I found the "mother-lode" of terra cotta flower pots last year at Garden Ridge also. They were very inexpensive. I see from the Garden Ridge web site that there are 3 stores in Ohio. If you live near one I would definitely check them out. Good luck. (03/19/2009)

Where Can I Find Inexpensive Terra Cotta Pots?

I find terracotta pots at yard sales, thrift shops, and dumpster/curbside.

But another good way to recycle is freecycle. It's where people offer items they no longer use and you post what you need. Check out freecycle.org for a description of what its about and a link to your local site. It is wonderful. (03/22/2009)

Try the Dollar Store/Dollar Tree if you have them in that part of the country. Or thrift stores, garage sales, and craigslist.com. (04/24/2008)
