I've been kicking myself for not buying a few for the shop (and myself)! So I was thrilled when I spotted several up for grabs at an antique auction yesterday. Competition was tough, but I managed to win a few for my booth.
They were once used by villagers on the European countryside to store and ferment fruits and vegetables before the winter. Green jars usually housed fruits; the clear versions preserved vegetables like cucumbers and white peppers.
Today, use your imagination - the old jars are perfect for displaying collections, holiday centerpieces, flowers, even a terrarium.
I spotted this pair of vintage Mason jars in the window of Mary Cates' new shop in Inwood Village - $125 for the large, $115 for the small.
I'm selling my larger jars for $95 and smaller for $85. I'm not delivering until this weekend so if you'd like to have one before they're gone, let me know!
