  1. Hi Pam,
    What is the difference between the shabby blue jars & the regular blue ones? I just sold 3 blue perfect mason with the zinc lids for my MIL & they only got $12.75 & I was a bit disappointed but that seems in line with what you got for the 6 above so maybe hers were shabby? Thanks!

    1. Hi Rhonda,
      The reason I listed them as shabby was that these jars had some bigger knicks on the rims so I called them shabby and said in the listing what was wrong with them and that I sell them for less than my regular price. At least I get a little bit of profit off of even the chippier ones. I usually sell my jars in my Etsy shop because it seems like they don't get as much on eBay. I usually sell the quart jars that are in good shape for $6.50 each and if they have a zinc lid I add 75 cents or a dollar each. I added a link to my shabby jars title under the picture so you can read my description on my Etsy shop. I'm sorry you didn't get more for your jars! ~~Pam

    2. See how much I know about jars, I thought maybe shabby was a different type! I looked at your listing & see what you mean. My MIL's jars were actually in really nice shape so I thought they would bring more but she will be happy as she was just going to toss them when they moved & I told her I would sell them for her.
      Thanks for your response!
