For those of you that have used vases for the centerpieces or other decorations? Where did you find them?! I have had the hardest time finding cheap ones..they all usually tend to run around $12-15, which will get costly after getting multiple. Ive seen a few people say dollar stores..and this may be a dumb question but which kind (dollar general, family dollar etc) because the ones i’m looking in don’t carry them haha. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have seen some vases at the Dollar Tree, but they’re not really my style.
We got our vases at thrift shops for $.25-$2.00/each. They’re mostly ivory ceramic or silver. My fiance doesn’t like clear vases. We’re putting 3 large hydrangeas each, which is running us $7. This is the general style (in fact, this is one of our “vases”):
I have also seen relatively cheap vases at Pat Catans (if you have one in your area) and Hobby Lobby (especially with a coupon).
ETA: What kind of vases are you looking for?

Dollar Tree does have vases in various shapes including standard cylinder vases.
You can order in bulk and pick them up at your local store.

Depending on how many/how long you need, I just went to Micheals every time I got a 40%-50% off coupon in the paper. Sure I made a few trips, but in the end it cost me half of what I would’ve paid for.
You can also try Ebay (there are places that sell vases in bulk) or save-on-crafts.com

I live near the Libbey Glass factory, and they have a glass factory outlet nearby as well.
I went there a few weeks ago and I found cylinder cobalt blue vases for $1 a piece in the clearance section!
However, before this I bought other vases, which we might not use now that I found the perfect blue ones. I bought these other vases at my local Goodwill!
Here are the goodwill ones.
They all ended up being about 1-2$ a peice. I found them at two different goodwills. They happened to have a BUNCH. It seems like this vase is a common shape.
Good luck though!

@julies1949: Holy moly! How come I never knew that you could order from Dollar Tree online? My life just got easier and my wallet just got lighter!

I have been using a thrift store near my house.
I go in and get like 5 books, 4 frames, and 5 vases and only pay like $15 dollars.
Then I just go back every couple of weeks and they have more!

Dollar Tree! I’ve bought a couple for past events and they looked great and hold up well.

As a pp said, check in your area for a glass factory. I scored some ridiculous deals at a local glass factory’s outlet store…it makes buying in bulk easy on the wallet, and it’s worth a 1-2 hour drive… I also used the dollar tree’s cylinder vases and AC Moore has a vase I fell in love with to hold our rock candy decor that I’ve been scooping up one at a time with the 40% off coupons.

You might also want to check out Ikea – They have tons of cheap vases in all kinds of shapes and sizes.

We got some cylinder vases at Dollar Tree, and I also scoured my local Goodwill stores every week or so–they had so many vases priced at $1-$3. I decided to do 3 different sizes of cylinder vases, so I got the 7″ ones at Dollar Tree and collected the 9″ and 12″ vases from Goodwill over the course of a year or so! I think I ended up one or two short, so I got those with coupons at Michaels.

I got mine from former brides on Craig’s List for VERY cheap.
