These small clear plastic jars measure 1-13/16” tall x just a smidgen under 2” dia, and hold approx 2 oz each with non-gasketed cafe-au-lait color screw caps. About the size and shape of small paint jars, and our tests indicate that they’re water-tight.
Think lip balm, or glitter lotion. These clear plastic jars measure 1-3/16" dia x 3/4" tall with non-gasketed black plastic screw caps. Holds 6ml or 1/5 oz. Or if you're starting a collection or riding the bus, 10 U.S. quarters.
These clear plastic (PET) jars are small peanut-butter jar sized. Measure 3-5/8” tall x approx 3” dia with straight sides, and hold about 10 oz. which is roughly the same size as an 8-year old's marble collection, double the amount of coins in your car's cup holder and the ideal space to hold 17 fireflies before releasing them back into the night. Come with a gasketed red plastic screw cap.
Or drip some drops. These translucent white plastic (HDPE) bottles hold 50ml (1-2/3 oz) and measure 3-1/4" x 1-1/2" and come with a matching safety dropper cap that's marked for 0.4 and 0.8ml. Our each is a pack of (6) bottles so you'll have enough to drip drops through the tulips before needing to refill.
These perfect little clear-plastic canisters have snug pull-off tops. They fit into die-cut circles in a black foam pad for display or shipping, with the cut-out foam placed inside the canisters. The foam makes them ideal for safe storage and artful display of individual coins, seeds, insects, stones (precious, semi-precious, or gall-), baby teeth, locks of hair, or any number of tiny treasures. Or toss the foam and store small amounts of anything that doesn't need a screw top. You pick (50) small canisters at 1-1/4" dia x 11/16" deep, or (12) larger canisters at 1-3/4” dia x 5/8" deep.
This little steel pot is painted to look like a bronze artifact from, say, Caesar Augustus's kitchen. Measures 5-3/8" dia at the top x 4-1/2" tall on a 3-1/8" dia base. Nice plant pot, or a container for spare change, marbles or writing instruments.
Got stuff to brush on? This stylish black HDPE bottle holds 2 oz and stands 3" tall x 1-9/16" dia with a gasketed screw cap that has a 3/8" wide nylon brush attached to the inside. Great for glues, paints, oils, and lots of other brushable stuff.
These clear plastic jars look like the ones that medicated lip balm comes in, but these are empty. Measure approx 1-1/2” tall x 1-1/2” dia with a black plastic screw cap, and hold 1 oz. May we suggest creating your own lip balm and saving a fortune? Also good for toting a few pills on a trip (pain relief, allergy, vitamin), and for storing glitter, and for collecting insects, and for all of the other stuff you’ll come up with.
