I just came from a dollar store and have been to a thrift store recently but haven't seen any containers like these. I do, however, have some decorative glass jars that food came in that would work just fine with the decoration around the top, I doubt anyone could tell what they were. Great idea!

If I had a beach house, I would 100% make these.
