Houston, we have a problem. 15


12 and 16 oz bottles and pumps!

Houston, we have a problem.Those words will live forever. We are space junkies around here and can claim the day man walked on the moon was a staff member’s 8th birthday. Our families, friends and neighbors have worked on many space shuttles over the years. Today this phrase has a new meaning.

Bell bottle and pump!

When our buyer stumbled upon some major quantities of overstock items and the price was something we couldn’t refuse, we knew we had to ACT! What would you say to 100 packs of bottles for $12? How about SETS of bottles and pumps for $15? We made a major score on these items for you! They are quality containers and we are passing this major savings on to our customers. The containers are in quantity of thousands, sometimes even 100,000+! We now get to Houston.

Two bottles in a caddie!

The phrase “Houston, we have a problem,” was expressed when we realized this was 70 pallets and 3 semi trailer loads. THREE full trailers, not pups (the small trailers), not bobtails (the small trucks making local deliveries) but three long semi trailers FULL OF CONTAINERS! These long haul trailers have been showing up this week (not all on the same day) and we have been unloading them into our already full warehouse. Where does one put 70 pallets? I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to park in the snow and cold just to allow 8 pallets to take up my car’s space at home.

So……

8 oz round base jars and caps!

We’re releasing these containers at FANTASTIC prices! We won’t be able to extend this offer beyond the current inventory because we are paying LESS THAN what we would pay direct from the manufacturer. So, would you help us out and review our NEW PRODUCTS and SPECIALS categories this week? I’ll be releasing new containers today, tomorrow, and on the weekend. Review your current inventory and find some space in your facility because these prices will make you more profitable. You can’t complain about increased profit margin, can you?

I have a few other thoughts to share with you like Flat Stanley, tea, postmarks and such. I will save this for tomorrow. In the meantime, check your wares and know that MMS wants you to have great products at great prices every single day!

    Hi Tina! How fantastic! I see you already have the jars on your website, which I want to purchase, but I’m sure I’ll want other items and can’t wait for you to post them all. Can we purchase and hold until you’re done listing all the items in the MMS catalog?

    Ditto to npeters question above. Will want to purchase several items but don’t want to pay shipping individually on each purchase. Please advise as to how to proceed.

    Thank you!!

    A question on the bell bottle with pump – what are the dimensions of the bottle? It’s hard to tell from the picture, and was wondering what type of label would go best! You have such a deal here, I want to get some!

    The label panel is about 2 inches in height and 10.5 inches around. Of course, you can break it up into a front and back label. With the pump in the closed position the whole thing is about 6.25 inches tall, the bottle to the top of the shoulder is about 4.5 inches tall.

    I finally have all on the web. WHEW! That was a task. I do need to edit the descriptions to note that the black pumps and the pump in Champagne have the locking ability in the UP position. The bell bottle has the pump locking in the down position. I’ve had some really good questions on these containers so you can expect some description editing to include what I forgot!

    On the 12 and 16 oz new bottles with the black pumps……….. could you please tell me the height and width around on them.. Are they about the same as your frosted 8 oz bottles which I was just about to order – Would they kind of match so I can sell both side by side?

    Thank you so much. I really to order like yesterday otherwise I would certainly not pester you,and wait a couple days until you’ve posted it :}

    Tina, I can’t find the bell bottles on the site. Are they all sold out already? Boy, you didn’t have to worry TOO long about where to put those 70 pallets! LOL

      The Bell Bottles sold out very quickly since we only had a limited quantity of those bottles. We still have lots of the other containers!

    Is there any way that you will be ordering more of the 12oz HDPE natural lotion bottles! I can’t find them anywhere else and I am almost out and really need more at decent prices.

    BLOG PROBLEM – RE: Pic #1 above — ” How about SETS of bottles and pumps for $15?” doesn’t coordinate with catalog. Catalog has fifty of the 16 oz. bottles only and says you have to buy the pumps separately… but there’s no “set” of 50 pumps… just 10 or 100. It would be wonderful if these were still available!

      This is correct. The catalog has changed as most of this has been sold. For this reason we don’t go back and alter a blog that posts data which were correct at the time of publication.
