Glass Slant Jar with Metal Lid
Great for making a "Candy Bar"!!
I've been wanting to feature a "candy station" at various parties that I throw at my house, but most containers that are cute and practical are typically quite expensive.
I happened to be at the Container Store looking for other items and stumbled upon these jars. I loved them because they look like old-fashioned candy containers.
They are heavy (in a good way) with a nice lid. I purchased 2 of the large and 2 of the small ones - along with the plastic scoops and they were the hit of my party!
One thing to keep in mind is that there isn't a rubber ring in the lid, so I wouldn't keep anything in them that could be compromised by high humidity such as crackers or unwrapped candy. I used them with unwrapped candy, but only for the duration of the party and not for storage.
If they had a more sealable lid, I would have given them a 5!

Slant Glass Jar with More!
I know it sounds crazy, but this slant jar has made my work life so much easier - we provide granola to our employees and the previous containers ALWAYS left a mess. Not with the slanted jar, there's room for lots of granola and a scoop and with the slanted design the scoop overflow goes right back into the jar!

fun storage for art supplies
These sturdy jars with metal lids made visually appealing, and easy-to-access storage for cotton balls, and pom poms in our kids' "art area". My goal was to have the storage easy for the kids to access, and see.... so they'd keep it organized!! My next project will be to outfit our pantry in these fabulous canisters!! In the pantry, I'll use them for flour and sugar, since the mouth will be wide enough for measuring cups...

In my sewing room
This jar has lived in my sewing room for years, holding small pieces of ribbon, seam binding, elastic, yarn, zippers, etc. Nice to be able to turn it around and see what I'm looking for without completely dumping the contents. I have another devoted to old wooden spools and their original threads. It's a very colorful display.
