I would like to have a variety of different mercury glass vases for my center pieces. Do you have suggestions on where to buy affordable vases?
Not sure where you're located, but if you have access to Michael's or Hobby Lobby, both have carried them in the past. I do a mercury glass motif at Christmas and have been collecting mismatched pieces for several years. I also found a few at Target, but they were more expensive. Search this board for "mercury glass" - there are several other posts. And of course, you can Google just about anything! Good luck - hope you'll post pics of what you choose!

I have a bunch of silver mercury glass for sale that I used for my wedding. I have both sizes: http://www.jamaligarden.com/detail/26257/68/glass-vases/color-glass/antique-silver-hobnail-vases.php
But you have to be located in Northern CA because I think it might be too risky to mail. message me if interested.
This is how it looked for my wedding:
im not sure where youre located, but if you have a garden ridge near you, definitely check them out. they have a lot of different colors of faux mercury glass votives, hurricane style vases, etc. and very reasonably priced... some on clearance for seventy five percent off.
Try rental places...votive holders to rent were only $.25 a piece and $.60 with a candle.
You could also diy with some cheap vases from the dollar store
It doesn't look that hard, his is what I plan to do for my wedding
I have some larger MC glass pieces I am selling as well.
I've seen mercury glass in Christmas displays at stores...so wherever you buy from, try after the holidays and it will likely be discounted.
@Mrs.babycat: I second that. My BFF DIYed her mercury glass and you wouldn't think twice about it looking at them.
If anyone is still looking for mercury glass vases, check out my posting on the Classifieds. I have twelve gorgeous, hand-blown, mercury glass vases that I've decided not to use (we're going in a different direction.)
They are brand-new and totally stunning! If you're in Chicago and interested, let me know!
I got 5 sets of these from save on crafts for $27.00 although the shipping was quite high! :/ You could use them as vases rather than candle holders.
Let me rephrase that, 5 sets at $27.00 per set of three.
@Larsy18: Where are you located? I have a HUGE lot of mercury glass I will be selling after my wedding on June 1. 50 votives, nine stemmed votives similar to the pic above, and around 30-35 assorted shapes and sizes I'll be using for centerpieces.
