Where can I buy cheap containers for spa products?

Where is the best source for buying jars, bottles, etc for making & selling spa/bath items like bath salts, body scrubs, liquid facial toners?

I'm going to make spa items like these & sell them at the farmer's market this summer so would like a great resource for cheap container supplies.

  • Check the Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Dollar General, Walmart, Garden Ridge and Old TIme Pottery. I don't know what stores you have in your area, but these are some good places to look.

  • if you want to use canning jars (worked really well for me in the past) try Goodwill. They aren't cheap cheap, but are usually cheaper than buying new jars, and you can get deals sometimes! GL! And if you want to share ideas for making things, I am all for it. Or just pass them along too!

  • chemistrystore.com - they sell containers cheap, and they are good quality. I buy from them and have never been disappointed. If you buy from a store, even the dollar store, you will pay as much as $2.00 per container.. at the chemistry store site, a container will run you MUCH less.. for example, a lid may be .13 and a container .35... you have to buy in bulk (10 or more usually) but if you are going into business, thats your best economical choice. They also sell bath poufs, shrink wrap, and cosmetic bases (soap bases, scents... so on..)

  • Check out wholesale jars and containers, also discontinued or liquidations. Good Luck, Also think out of the box, Use an old pail- paint it, can get wicker baskets on Craig's list, Also all types of baskets, new home- colandar, spoons, spices from $store with oven mitts and a big bow, ect. Good Luck
