Frigoverre glass storage

I'm trying to cut down my plastic consumption and want to use Frigoverre glass jars (the kind that have the metal apparatus to "lock" and rubber seal) for pasta, flours, sugars, beans...etc. It's a very European look, and while they are certainly an investment, I think it's a great way to live a bit more environmentally and health-friendly. (same as attached picture


Is there a place to buy these in Boston? I have had terrible luck with ordering glass online and having it shipped, and I would love to be able to go somewhere in person to purchase these jars.

Any ideas? Thanks!

  1. I use French Mason jars for the same purpose. They do have rings but they are a lot less expensive. Many hardware stores carry them and I picked up some at the Container store in Chestnut Hill.
