ISO 1.5 & 2 L Mason jars for storing pantry goods (reasonably priced)

Where to buy these, on the cheap (and they're just jars, why shouldn't they be cheap)...
Golda's Kitchen has them for a pretty penny, but I just can't see spending $6.00 per jar...

Try Crappy Tire. Stock on these varies between stores, so a bit of fishing around may be necessary. Go where people use these regularly: try Woodbridge. Some of the surviving old school streetfront Home Hardware stores carry all sorts of canning gear, too. The big jars are tough to source but they are out there. I'd pass on antiques. Golda's just ain't the place.
Thanks for the suggestions. I do have some antique jars, but they just don't close the same... Pretty, though. I will head to Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, and some thrift stores and see what I can find. I'm looking for larger than the standard canning jars, though... Here's hoping.
Check out Consolidated Bottle at 77 Union street in the junction. They sell to distributors but are open to the public.. Their small store is open M-F 9-4? You can always call them for pricing. If I remember correctly, they were higher than a sale at Canadian Tire but lower than the regular price everywhere else.
