Lolly Buffet Jars

Hiring vs. Buying Lolly Buffet Jars

Whether to hire or buy is a very personal choice but we are here to help you compare the benefits!

Benefits of Hiring

There are some fantastic companies out there that will hire you their jars at a very reasonable price. There are two main benefits of hiring:

1. You will save time!
They have already done the leg work, they have the whole range lined up and you can just pick your favourites. They commonly offer packages, making this choice even simpler as you just select the package you like.

2. You will save money!
Always a good thing when you have a wedding/event to plan! It stands to reason that hiring is cheaper than buying, but you will have to weigh up the difference as this is a very personal decision.

Benefits of Buying

First things first with buying, don’t be limited by their intended use, you can do amazing things with Mason Jars, Vases, Dessert Bowls, Preserving Jars, Ice Buckets, Coffee Plungers and Martini Glasses just to name a few! Let your search run wild and see what you can find! There are two main benefits with buying your own:

1. Customisation!
If you buy each jar yourself you can get the one that you love and fits your theme perfectly! Not being constrained to package deals allows you to let your creativity run wild and fully express yourself.

2. You can use them later!
After seeing how much fun a lolly buffet is chances are you will want to do another one! Well you can do it easily and cheaply if you buy the jars and keep them! Alternately some people give them away as a special thank you to bridesmaids/people who have made a special effort to be there.

Where to Buy!

Ebay and Gumtree are fantastic places to start your search. You will find plenty of options, sometimes even full sets, and you can get an amazing deal on glassware that has only been used once.
In person – While some of the bigger ‘cheap’ shops have a website, like The Reject Shop, most don’t but they often have amazing glassware for a great price! In addition to your local junk shop try places like The Salvos and your local opportunity shop. You can sometimes also find a hidden gem at garage sales or local markets!  Ikea – the Swedish home ware giant always has good options! At almost unbeatable prices they are well worth a good look.
Online – There are so many great online stores to hunt through. Stores like Wheel and BarrowPapaya, Just JarsSave on Crafts (excellent, particularly Martini Glasses), and Ballmason Australia have a range of great options for you!
Department Stores – Stores such as KmartBig W and Myer often have sales and although their range tends to be small there can often be a great piece at a very affordable price.
Lastly check with Family and Friends! – Lolly buffets are so popular now that you never know who might have some great options that you could borrow. Ask around, post on Facebook and you never know what you might turn up.
