I am/have been getting some stuff from there. I got some vases, supplies for floral, little wooden frames that I painted. I personally love that store!

I used dollar tree vases for my BM’s bouquet vases and my bouq vase – we put them on display.  Trust me when I tell you that a glass vase is a glass vase.  Mine were 9 inches (I think) but here is a photo of one in action – Ignore how high up my bouquet is, there were WAY too many stones in it and i just threw it in there and didnt push it down 🙂

Definitely a great place to go for bugeting. And not all of the dollar trees things are cheap-o pieces of poop. They’ve actually got some good stuff in there…on occasion!

If you order online and ship to your local store there’s no shipping charge. I ordered about 5 of each size to do a trial run and they’re pretty dang good. I plan on grouping 3 different sizes together on each table.

I saw some at the dollar store and they looked fine to me. They weren’t excellent quality but for one day they will do. You cant tell by looking at them that they are dollar store vases.

i say go for it! i went looking for glass cylinders to do those floating candle things for the ceremony. no luck at the one by me, but i’d much rather pay a dollar than pay 10.00 per vase at michael’s. looks like that is what i’ll be doing though!

Quite frankly, once you fill them with beautiful flowers, who’s going to look at the vase?!

I used the dollar tree too, I just want to warn everyone of something that happened.  The vases were perfectly fine, and arrived quickly, but for about 5 months after that, we got harrassing phone calls.  All scam artists trying to get money from us.  We traces all the calls, and found out they were coming from Jamacia – they called 3, 4 maybe 5 times a day.  So my fiance would ask for their name and phone number.  They would give him very american sounding names & phone numbers with a Jamacian exchange.

At one point, they started threatening my fiance’s life… so we went to the police and filed a report, which allowed us to go to the phone company, and they could start tracing and blocking the calls… she said, “did you order anything online recently”… the only thing we had ordered were the vases from the dollar tree.  She said that they most likely sold our address and phone number to someone, who sold it to these people.

However the phone company was going to charge us like 40 dollars to change our number!!! Even though our lives were being threatened.  So we turned the volume down on our phone, and quit answering.  We still got calls for a while, but when we never answered, they started tapering off.

Just wanted to warn everyone.  The vases are great, but if you can, buy them in the store!
