    Does anyone use these? How much do they usually run? There are 2 in a local antique shop here, one for $35, and one for $65.

    I am thinking of making my own ceramic one, so I can put my own image on it.

    I "mold" my butter in Ziploc disposable plastic 1 cup food storage cups. That way my butter is all uniformly in 1/2 lb measurements. I can snap the lid on the container, label it and toss it into the freezer for future use. Or I can sell it and not have too much cost invested in wrappings.

    Good point! I thought it might be cute to make my own mold, but that does seem like too much work to find packaging for the "pretty" butter that is just going to be used anyway.

    Sometimes the artist in me gets carried away!

    Hmmm... Maybe I'll just design labels if I decide to sell the extra butter.
    I gotta do something artistic with it! *wink* I just can't leave well enough alone!
