These beautiful little vials come with the silver-plated caps and neoprene/rubber stoppers. They're a bit smaller than the regular vials I call "small vials". They are push-on caps. They need to be glued on after the stopper (if you opt to use it) is in place and there is no screw in the cap . With the cap in place, these vials are about 7/8" long. The opening is 3mm.

A note about quantity: "Quantity" x "How many" is the number you will receive.

I have a new favorite glue, "Duco Cement". It's clear, and comes in a tube, and you can get it at any hardware store for $3-4. (I'm selling it now, just do a search of my store for "glue".) It's a bit thicker than superglue and gives you about 5 minutes to work with it before it sets. (And if it gets on your hands your fingers don't stick together!) Good stuff.

Frequently asked questions about cricketseeker

Quality. I pull product that is flawed in any way. I get a lot of that from my own suppliers and I don't pass that along to you. Some of the things I order I can't use 50% of it as the tops aren't level and the cap would tilt or the hanging loop is way off on the side. I spend about 14 hours a week sorting product. I pulled out all the stops this year to find the best product possible, my prices are competitive, I offer a quantity option on most items ~and~ you now pay one flat shipping fee (everything else ships free, no matter where you are in the world)....I also ship quick from the U.S.of A!
Integrity. I'm careful about who I buy from and even the agents I employ. When you buy from me you not only help me pay the bills every month you're supporting some really wonderful -- positive, generous, honest and hard-working -- people who helped me through this year of transition and kept this shop on the map. I didn't really get the marketing gene so it's hard for me to sell myself but I received a message from a friend this week after a rough couple of days and she said, "Jen, you were born accountable." I consider that to be pretty much the best compliment ever.
I'm currently overhauling my pricing in order to cut back every possible penny. I am definitely open to doing my best to price match, especially with larger orders....I've never been one to check out "the competition". I just do the best I can and ask what I must. But yes, it's ok to ask. :)
I'd love to know about the products you would like to see me carry. I'm always happy to try to find what you need -- long term or just a one-time order.
I ship only via USPS except in special cases.
Yes. Absolutely. And I'll make up for any errors or delays any way I can.
I try to send a day or two after your order is placed. If your order is time-sensitive please message me (or leave a message at checkout (or both) and let me know. I'll make every effort to send your order right away no matter what's going on. I wear every hat in the business and work pretty much every day of the year. If you don't hear from me it likely just means I'm knee-deep in something else that needs doing. I also have no way of bulk-messaging buyers. If you need to get my attention quickly, place "ASAP" at the front of your message and this will show up on my phone and I'll drop what I'm doing and get right back to you.
It's just me. :) Even when things are running smoothly I work two shifts a day During the day I send orders out; at night I order and sort product and respond to e-mail. If you haven't heard from me I'm either sick, or completely deluged. (Update: I am no longer working weekends and holidays. Actually I am still working but need that time to focus on ordering and prepping product.)

This is a train that never stops. I give it my all, every day, but yes -- sometimes I fail spectacularly. If I do I will do anything in my power to make it up to you. I care about strangers as much as I do my own family but I'm wearing every hat and given current economic conditions it is not an option to hire anyone.
The quantity option is part of the Etsy template. In order to offer a variety of quantity option I had to add the the "how many" pull-down menu. The easiest way to figure out how many you've ordered it to multiply the "quantity" x "how many". This way you can order 2, 5 or 10 (times a quantity of 1)...or 2 sets of 2 (if you only need four).
Any good craft glue should work. Superglue is not a great choice as it may cloud the glass. Some people like E6000 but my personal favorite is Duco Cement (green tube on a green and yellow cardboard backing -- you can find it at many hardware stores or here on Etsy). It has a smoother consistency than E6000 and dries enough to work with in about 10 minutes...and it's really strong once it's had a chance to dry completely. For the best possible bond you can clean the components with rubbing alcohol. You can also set the vials upright in rice (or something similar) to dry. This is helpful when capping vials that have a round bottom.
