I dont know if you have a Kirklands where you live or not, but I constantly see these things there and a lot of times they will put them on sale for a very reasonable price AND there is always a coupon to be found. 
If you do have a store, download the Kirklands “Spin to Win” app and you will get a new coupon everyday.

Other than that, I would just stay tuned to any wedding resale board that may have brides re-saleing theirs.

Good luck!

Thrift store shopping and craigslist from former brides.

I don’t know if you have a Michael’s or a craft store equivalent in Canada, but I pretty much bought one a week (sparsed out) from there, each time with a 40% off coupon, and that worked pretty well.

Do you have TJ Maxx and Marshalls.  We bought all of ours from there. We lucked out and even got some on sale for $5.  I ended up getting carried away and now we probably have too many.  But even the big ones, were only like $12.99.

  • @MOHlookingForIdeas:  walmart has some if they have that in Canada. Also, Home Goods and Marshall’s. Again, not sure if those are in canada. I also used to see them resold by brides often and for good prices….

Micheals is super expensive for apothecary jars. They were like $45-75.  I ended up going to the states for mine. I think we went to tj max? They were 15-25$ there. And yes, you need to get wider mouthed ones to get the candies out. Party stuff sells small scoops that made it a bit easier and they also sell the baggies or boxes. Also Superstore and Ikea have large glass cylinders… not apothecary exactly but still nice.

@MOHlookingForIdeas:  have you tried goodwill, resale shops, yard sales, antique stores, etc.

i find lots of unique glass pieces very inexpensively this way.  i was looking for 12 old fashioned ice cream dishes.  i got them for about 75cents a piece.
