Will Jones has honey jars for sale. They are the popular 8oz size and are 38p each. Given the weak sterling at the minute, this represents a good price and he doesn't make a profit.
If you are interested in buying some jars, please contact Will on 07380 374560

2.50 euro / LB if exchanging for foundation. No cash involved.
2.00 euro /LB outright money exchange.
Sam can be contacted on 07976 084855. He is based Macosquin, Coleraine.
