ISO Fancy, small Jam/Mason Jars in Toronto

f

Hi,

I would like to find some smaller, preferably fancy jars for jam for a gift. Something a little different from the usual Canadian Tire/grocery store type ones.

Has anyone seen anything slightly fancier, suitable for a present for the family jam-maker who is always giving away all of her jars?

I work downtown but am willing to drive.

Thanks in advance!

    I actually found some really nice ones, with the hook top at the dollar store! Most stores carry different items but I would definitely suggest checking out a few.

      Have you thought about checking out something like the Organized Living Store or Kitchen Solutions Plus? I've seen some stuff in there that looked like whay you want.

        I found the most beautiful small jars - Weck canning jars - at the Wildly Delicious warehouse sale today on Railside Road. They are $2 a pop.

          Go to the Bernardin website. They have many different shapes of jars with plenty of decorative lids. You can order on line and they deliver it within a few days.

            Thank you both, I'll try Zellers and take a look at the Martha Stewart magazine. Decorating ones myself would be a nice personal touch.

              If you have time and are willing to do a little extra work, the Martha Stewart holiday magazine that's out right now in Chapters has a beautiful idea for decorating glass hurricane candle holders. It could easily transfer to decorating mason/jam jars :)

                I actually saw the nice small ones , 4 oz size with decorated glass in Zeller's but that was about two weeks ago...You could call them...so many of the stores have put the 'summer items' away after Halloween so finding them might not be that easy at this time
                The Zeller's that I went to was in the Galleria Shopping Mall at Dufferin & Dupont, I think it's 1245 Dupont...pretty dreadful Mall but it is the closest Zellers to me.
