Your Questions About Apothecary Jars

Sharon asks…

What to put in Old World Apothecary Jars?

I have 3 apothecary jars, of varying sizes – ranging from 2′ to 8″ and different widths also, on a large glass and metal square coffee table. I would like to find some unusual old world items to put in them, but I’m stumped.

I’ve considered old buttons, old door knobs, old scrabble pieces, twine balls, etc. but all seem to present one challenge or another.

Any suggestions?

Rock salt, sugar crystals, hard candy, marbles, dominoes, small toy metal cars, match books, tongue depressors (that’s what my doc keeps in his), bubble gum, potpourri.
