Canning Jars - Locally

I finally found a local hardware store that carries canning supplies!  So I stocked up with scooping up 3 cases! This hardware store only carries the jars once a year, and they don't carry that many cases.  If I had the space, I think I would have bought every single case.  hahaha.  I've complained about it before in previous blog posts.  It is so difficult to find canning jars in Staten Island.  The only place I was able to find them was AC Moore, but they charge $1.99 a jar.  Um, no way!  That would mean a case would cost $24!  Forgetaboutit!  I found these cases for $9.99. It's the same price as the Ball website, but at least I don't have to pay for shipping! 
Thank goodness I got the jars, because I have been busy canning the harvests.  I did a whole case of pint size jarred pickles.  And some heirloom tomato salsa.  Yum!  Canning season has begun!


  1. Glad you found them. If you were here in MS, I could load you up!

  2. What hardware store? I'm also looking to stock up.

  3. Hi Jay, Doody Home Center is where I got the canning jars. Call them first to make sure they have it in stock, when I was there, they only had 20 or so cases.



We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
