Many novelty cookie jars can be found on online retail websites, including Amazon.com and Overstock.com. EBay.com also has many kinds of new and vintage cookie jars.
Online retailers and secondhand retailers such as eBay have lots of unique offerings, since they include both new and old or out-of-production items, including many interesting cookie jars. As of Oct. 16, 2015, some cookie jars offered on Amazon.com include a Dr. Who cookie jar with lights and sounds, a cheeseburger-shaped cookie jar and a rabbit in a top hat cookie jar. EBay's offerings for the same date include a Winnie-the-Pooh Tigger cookie jar, a ceramic duck cookie jar, a turtle cookie jar and a cookie jar from the 1950s shaped like a cow jumping over the moon. Overstock had a Batman cookie jar and a Toy Story cookie jar, as well as a variety of patterned and colored jars among its offerings.
Retail stores such as Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target do not carry vintage/used cookie jars, but they do have the advantage of allowing a potential buyer to go to a local store and handle the cookie jar before purchasing it. Ranging from plain white or solid color jars to animal shapes and snowmen, these traditional retailers offer good variety as well.
