Sauce Bottles

hey again all, i went ahead and made a bunch of hot sauce and all my friends want some of their own, and i want to put them in bottles for them (for gifts and such) and i was wondering if anyone know a place in/around Boston that would have 2 or 5 oz (maby even 8 oz) glass sauce bottles that i can package this sauce into.

(i looked at all the online retailers and they charge a fee if you dont order a large ammount of bottles, im kinda trying to avoid that)

thanks again

  1. I'm not sure if they have that type of bottle specifically, but the first place I would look is The Container Store in the Chestnut Hill/Wellesly area of Route 9.

      I've had luck at the Christmas Tree Shop for stuff like that - cheap, too!

    2. I was thinking China Fair on Mass. Ave., Cambridge might have something like what you're looking for. They have a huge inventory of all sorts of food related items, but Christmas Tree Shops is a terrific rec.

        I'd second the China Fair recommendation.

      2. I am fairly sure I've seen bottles like that at Beer and Wine Hobby, in Woburn and also online at

        Beer & Wine Hobby
        180 New Boston St, Woburn, MA

        1. Many hardware stores carry Ball/Kerr jars and assorted parts (tops, rings, etc.), including the fancy jelly jar types like this one:

          If you don't actually can and seal them, make sure your friends know that - they should keep it refrigerated. Hot sauces can last a long time, but if someone assumes it's been canned and leaves it in the pantry, it will eventually go bad.

          1. I've had trouble finding them small like that and settled for wide mouth tapered half pint ball mason jars. Didn't can them, just lcosed em up.
