    Default Where to buy decant bottles locally???

    What local stores other than online (I'm not paying for an item that's cheaper than the shipping price) sell a simple 10 mL glass decant bottle?
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    I don't know if they still do but Sephora used to sell large decant sprays. I believe the price included filling up with the scent of your choice, though I may be wrong there.

    Other than that, I don't believe anyone does. Most companies prefer to sell their products in the original packaging.

    Edit: I mis-read your question. You may be able to find empty decant bottles at a number of local stores. I would start with natural products stores and hobby shops. For national retailers maybe JoAnn Fabrics, Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

    I don't remember them selling those there. Then I'm new to Sephora.

    Have you tried Medina online? I know you're reluctant to pay the relatively high shipping, but if you buy several (like 6 or 10) it becomes quite reasonable.

    If you are looking for empty bottles, check your local cosmetology supply store. One that sells to the public, like Sally Beauty. I get mine there. They aren't the best bottles in the world, but they are certainly passable. I use them to take my frags to the gym with no issues so far.

    Also check local "hippie" type stores. We have a local place called Leaves and Roots that has a fabulous (and huge) selection of essential oils (I got pure sandalwood oil there!), bakhoor, incense, etc and a good selection of sample vials, sprayers, cobalt, brown, and clear screw top bottles, etc.

    +1 for The Container Store. Local headshops are also a good place for small vials & containers.

    Do you have a Nordstroms nearby? I visited a semi-local one today and noticed they had prominent displays of 5ml decants on all the frag counters.

    There is a store called Sally Beauty that sells them in the NYC metro area and southern California, for example. See:

    http://www.sallybeauty.com/

    for store locator.

    I got a couple of 10 ml plastic spray ones for $1 each.
