Needed: 1-2 wide-mouthed mason jars

Dear neighbors, I am looking for 1-2 *wide-mouthed* one-pint mason jars with lids for a project. I can trade you normal mason jars if you like. Thanks!

  • Hey Stephanie, they sell them at some Target stores; I saw them on the Target website. I think they are sold by the dozen, which might be more than you need, but they're useful for a lot of things.
