just found this site for jars after a very long search (I make jam to sell and so buy jars for ease ans cos I cant recycle enough)(also they are EXTORTIONATELY expensive here in france - sorry to disabuse anyone)
they were ordered on Fri and arrived here in france today!! they were also very cheap
hope this helps someone
Snap! My glass jars arrived yesterday. I bought them from here
Very good value but the postage was horrendous.
Like you I'm making preserves to sell this year and new jars are a must for this.
We've been buying the value marmalade and lemon curd from Morrison's because we've also found that this is a cheaper way to build up a stock of jars. They cost around 27 pence each so we'll take a look at the mint sauce in Tesco, especially if the jars are slightly smaller because we prefer the smaller jars for chutney. It's a shame that we have to throw away to contents - but the quality is very poor and if we reuse the jars for years to come then it's not too bad.
I can't be bothered top buy 'value' products and then clean the jars and try and get the labels off and throwing away the contents doesn't sit to well with my ethics. I guess it's ok if I only want a few jars but just stocked up on 1/2lb jars at 35p each which seemed a reasonable price and postage wasn't too bad. Arrived next day.
I agree that I would have a hard job throwing the contents away, it has to be really awful not to use up first. I also wonder if it encourages the companies to carry on producing naff products as well, I know it is only a tiny contribution to the sales, but still!!! Just wondering
I noticed my local pound type store (think it was Instore/Poundstretcher) had lots of jars in, including Kilners, before Xmas for a reasonable price - can;t remember what it was but I remember thinking it was well worth it (except all my friends save me their jars so I didn't have an excuse to buy any)
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
I have been looking for small jars, and use the tiny ones that you get in hotels to make stocking fillers. I just asked a B&B to save some for me. I will be able to give several tiny samples of jams and chutney to people who don't use much, or if I don't know their taste and don't want my homemade food thrown out.

Must have over 60 jars of all kinds from the loft and containers so im well pleased i keeped them.
Yes about 9/10 ths throught and loft is getting better all the time and may get some small birds like a bamtons i willl get 3 just in case 2 should die in an accdent.
I have recently bought a batch of 8oz oval jars online through jamjarshop.com but I was also thinking of getting some swing top bottles from them for cordial, they have a great recipe on their website for Elderflower cordial . I think they are pretty competitive on price, particulalry on bulk orders.
