To me, few things communicate that cozy, welcoming feeling in the kitchen better than tastefully displaying your favorite, most-used items. In my kitchen, this includes my copper kettle, wooden spoons, my dry goods, and a few other trinkets. And for my dry food goods, I will chose vintage canning jars over just about any other storage option. They’re functional, beautiful, and usually in perfect condition. I love imagining what else my little mason and ball jars have been privileged to store over the years. A few of my jars have pieces of tape with descriptions of contents and dates. I hope these markers remain on them forever (which means super careful washing).
All of my jars were purchased at thrift stores, and I paid no more than $4 for each. Usually the price was closer to $2. I keep my eyes open at almost every thrift store I visit, and buy them whenever I see them (when I agree with the price, that is). My collection has jars found throughout the Northeast, including New Jersey, Massachusetts, Virginia, and West Virginia. Can’t wait to add more.
Keep your eyes open for these beauties next time you’re hunting for treasures! But look out, antique shops (and some thrift shops) like to charge way more than I’m willing to spend, and if you’re patient, you’ll find a bargain!
So tell me, what are you favorite thrifted kitchen storage options?
