At the farmers' market where I sell cut flowers, I offer bouquets already arranged in inexpensive clear glass vases. I begin the season with a supply of three different sizes of vases to accommodate a variety of flower stem lengths and different size bunches. A sign on my market table announces that I welcome recyclable vases, and my loyal customers oblige me by offering their extras. This system works well except for one major problem. Not a single vase, on its own, has reliably stayed upright on windy market days.
