I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday looking for various craft items and wandered down their glass aisle. Boy, am I glad I did. All glass items are 50% off! So, I brought these home.
The decorative lidded jar on the left was originally $5.99, so I scored it for 3 bucks. Our new spaghetti jar was only $2.50 and each canning jar was only $1.25. I don’t need those right now, but I do use the same type for our vacation jars, so I figured it would be okay to have a few on hand.
Once I returned home, I regretted not buying more. I think I’ll have to go back before Saturday, when the sale ends, to get various sized jars for other purposes.

i blacked out a IKEA this weekend and bought five different glass jars with no future plans for them. then as if that wasn’t enough i went to World Market and got more for 50% off. thank god i didn’t go to Hobby Lobby….yikes!
I love glass jars, and I was just telling my husband that I needed to go to Hobby Lobby to look for drawer pulls… this could be dangerous.
Ask me how much I love a cheap apothecary jar. I guess a trip to Hobby Lobby is in the cards this week. Heaven help me.
$1.25 seems expensive for a mason jar, especially when you can buy a pack of 12 from Ball online for 10.99 – and you can find them even cheaper at the Goodwill or even at garage sales. (I can a lot. My dad just bought me a giant barrel full of old canning jars for $5 at a garage sale – all they need is new rings and lids to be useable!)
$1.25 is sort of expensive, but the jars are smooth and I can only find the canning jars with ‘Ball’ written on them… Even at Goodwill and other thrift stores. Thanks for the heads up, though!
I hve a,set of three jars similar to.what ur q-tips are in and one of the lids has broken. Any idea where I can get a replacement?
Hi…Are the metal lids on the tall glass jars airtight? Since its been some time you bought these, were the goods inside fresh ? Please let me know. I dont have a hobby lobby closeby so am thinking of ordering online and I cannot afford to waste to and fro shipping i dont like it..thanks
Yep, there’s a seal inside and I’ve never had a problem with contents going stale, even when used for crackers and such.
