    Local helps because of shipping. I buy bottles here and there. The fancy "muth" bottles from Brushy Mt. A lot of sqeeze bottles and such from Mann Lake. It depends on the cost counting shipping. I put some in pint canning jars. I like to have some variety. Some people want a fancy bottle. Some want something homey looking. Some just want larger simple bottles for less cost per pound.

    I use pint and quart canning jars from Wal-mart as my baseline, anything more expensive or cheaper gets figured into the cost.
