Ball Elite canning jars

Has anyone seen the ball "elite" canning jars locally?

I'm looking for low wide half pint jars (as opposed to the taller skinny ones), but my normal place doesn't carry them.

I'm in Cambridge, but will go as far as JP or Lexington

Thanks for any advice!

  1. In past years, I've seen them at Tags in the Porter Square Shopping Center. I haven't been there this year.

      Any of the ACE hardware stores should have them as well as Ben Franklin in Arlington, I've too seen them at TAGS.

        Tags definitely had them as of mid-August, I presume they still have them in stock.

      2. I'm sure that any place that sells any ball products can order them pretty easily.

        1. I have seen canning jars at the China Fair on Mass Ave in Cambridge. They may have them.

          1. If you're willing to do shipping, amazon seems to have them.

            1. I used to buy them at Stop & Shop.
