Solar Sun Jar
I have one of these and really like it. It looks like a caning jar but put it near a window during the day and it will glow all night. It is a perfect night light and I use it so that my dog can see her way when she gets up in the middle of the night. Nice and sturdy, you’ll find a million uses for it.
