Hello AT,
I've been wondering for about a year now how to find decorative bell jars. I've seen them in lots of little designy type shops in Brooklyn and in my girlfriends Anthropologie catalogs but I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere, well except for at Anthropologie for prices that seem pretty dang rediculous for a hunk of glass. I've tried searching for them on the web but so far with much less success than I would have expected. A nice shopkeeper wouldn't sell me his but said he got it from a company called Roostco...

...I looked up their website and it seems they only deal with licensed retailers. Where can one find these things at a reasonable price? I've got all kinds of near little curios but no rad bell jars to stick them under. It's very very sad. Thanks!

Dear TJ—
Outside of flea markets and John Derian(also expensive), we can't think of a definite solution. Candle stores or chemistry glass wholesalers? What about this one? Additionally, Smith & Hawken does have some rad pedestal terrariums that are reasonable...anyone out there know of a good resource? —aaron
