ISO canning jars near Woodside
- Joe MacBu Feb 20, 2007 07:20 PM
I hit 7 stores tonight looking for canning jars (mason jars, etc.). Six didn't know what the hell I was talking about (!) and one said it was a seasonal item that they carry only in the summer/fall.
I'm looking for both 4 and 8 ounce sizes. Any ideas around Woodside, Jackson Heights, or Sunnyside?
There is a weird odds and ends closeouts store in Sunnyside on Queens Blvd. 'South Pole' - I've seen mason jars there a year ago (sold by dozen in boxes). Have you checked Michaels on Northern blvd. in Woodside?
How about Bed, Bath and Beyond? They have one in East Elmhurst and it's a nice walk from Jackson Heights.
Neither South Pole nor BBB had it. Who knew it was such a rarity in Queens?
I managed to find a few at the "Priced Rite" store on Roosevelt Ave and 62nd St. Just called Michael's and they seem to have it also.
Thanks for all the tips!
