Ugly, Old Cookie Jar
Tell your favorite kitchen story
My mother had an old black cookie jar that she had received as a wedding gift in the 1944. I always hated cookies that had been in that cookie jar because they had a certain "taste" that I didn't like

My sister keeps granola bars in her "cookie" jar.  Actually it is an old bean pot that belonged to my mother.

Some old cookie jars can be valuable and worth money.

When this was first posted a long while ago I did not have a particular interest in Cookie Jars.  Well that has changed.
When I moved into this house a little over a year ago I took 2 cookie jars that had been in the old house and put them on top of the cabinets in the kitchen.  They were out of the way and I did not have to use up cupboard space for them.  Well my Grandson noticed and thought they looked good.  On my next trip to a resale shop I saw a cookie jar and thought it would be good addition to the 2 I had.  I brought it home, washed it and put it on top of the cabinet.  When my Grandson came back from school he sat down to his snack and noticed the cookie jar right away.  So I have made it a game to find unusual cookie jars and try to see how long it takes him to notice. He notices each one every time! I now have a total of 17 cookie jars.  I have a chance to take a trip next year to France and I am looking forward to getting one there. I am waiting for my friend to send me one from Maine, would love to have a Lobster cookie jar. If I add many more I may have to take the collection into the dining room on top of the china cabinet. If I do that I could add quite a few more.  Best thing I have purchased all of them at resale stores and I do not think I have spent more than $8.00 for any of them.  Very inexpensive way to "decorate".
The grandkids did make me one for my birthday and that is the only one that gets used for cookies. It has their hand prints on the cookie jar with the words "HANDS OFF" on the lid.

Wow, Nikki, that's a lot of cookie jars!  Many years ago Keebler gave away plastic cookie jars(when you bought their cookies) that were so cute with all the elves.  My kids loved that cookie jar when they were little.  I still have it, but now it's a "candy" jar.  Not quite big enough for the large size cookies that my husband likes lol.

I have the Keebler Elf Tree.  It was my first cookie jar many years ago.  I purchased it at Haeger Pottery in Dundee Illinois.  I took the kids there on a tour and I got one of the cookie jars I think it was a second sold at the factory although I can not find a flaw.  I am sorry to this day I did not buy the Harley Davidson cookie jar, it was made to look just like the gas tank on a motorcycle.  I also have a large Red Pepper that was my husbands before I met him.  Those were the first two cookie jars I had that started the collection.
Not sure if I want to keep going or is enough enough.  It is just so much fun to see if my Grandson notices a new one when it is added.
