Lots of Jars

No joke.  It rained blue ball jars yesterday. Rained straight into my arms... I wasn't hurt.

 I happened across a junk sale in the parking lot of a joint and decided that I had nothing better to do than stop in and see what was going on.  I scavanged through the small booths and found a booth with an old globe that I recognized... They told it was $10 but was "totally worth $40."  To heck they say... I saw that man checking out at Goodwill two weeks ago with it for $5...

You know what I didn't see him buying the other week... THE MASSIVE BOX OF BLUE JARS THEY WERE HIDING UNDER THE TABLE BY THE GLOBE!  Hello!!!!!!!!!!  Give me a price and let me run home and wash them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't want to them to know how bad I wanted the box so I said real casually... "How much is the box of jars?"  She tells me $35.  I look at the box.  I put my foot on the box because the man behind me sees my screaming internally and knows how bad I want it... He inches closer... Offers $20... I then put my foot in the box so he can't see how many jars are actually in there... He talks the man up while I call Chad. I offer $30, give them a check, and run.


Yes I realize that there are alot more lids than there are jars. I find jars without lids more than I find them with lids. This enabled me to put tops on 4 other jars I already owned... now I'm stocked up and ready!

My Pyrex finds have been mega slim lately so I have collected jars instead. I might need to slow down with these and move on to something else but this was a really fun find!  Check out a couple of the ball jar ideas that I grabbed off of Pinterest.  I have a board that you can see more just click here...
