Interesting glass jar and bottle supplier

Postby ellengray » Wed Oct 28, 2009 1:34 pm

I found this site purely by chance:

Gala Imports

http://www.galaimports.biz/default.php

Verrrrry cheap!

But ... you need to register to browse and it will not show the prices. I registered, then was a bit dismayed to find no prices listed, so went no further.

Half an hour later I had an email from the owner of the store saying he had upgraded my account to show prices and went back - and bought. Smooth deal! I bought HUGE storage jars (5 litres) with lids at about $15 each, but they were the absolute top-priced item I found there. Most jars and bottles are about the $1-$2 range, and he has some lovely things there. Payment can be via cc or via direct deposit.

Hi Sara,

Okay I'm going, as soon as I can... I can't help myself with a nice jar. ;)

Thanks for the link.

Oooh, they are nice, and slightly unusual jars, I like the smaller ones with the seal... for spices and the like.

Once my kitchen is done (which will need a small miracle) I think I'll go back and get some of those smaller jars for spices - they are really nice.

I also like the candle jars.
The other half used to have a candle making business, and we have all the supplies left over - giant blocks of wax, dyes, molds, wicks etc so I think a box of those will be in order - a bit like your kitchen, Sara, but for us its as soon as we have a shed....

One can never have too many jars!

Just to say I received my big glass jars from this place today and they're terrific. Very happy. Will be going back eventually for spice jars.
