“Some of the national and regional stores where you'll find the blue jars include Target, Albertson's and Bed, Bath and Beyond. Crafting stores will likely sell single jars. These include Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Stores and Wal-Mart.”

Not all stores will have this item stocked at the same time, so she should check local stores to confirm. Currently, if you order online they are back-ordered until June, so I was very lucky to get mine.


DEAR MELBA: I found the Blue Ball Anniversary Jars at the Target on NW Expressway and Rockwell. They did not have many on the shelves and the price was $9.99 for six. Just wanted to let you know and thank you.
