My recent purchase from Christianbook of Advent Candles went very smoothly. The candles were exactly as advertised, were shipped in a timely manner, and they were priced perfectly for the quality of the product.
These are excellent high quality candles, I have had them lit for entire evenings during the Christmas season, and they are slow burning, but good wicking , nice flame. Even the first candle has plenty of life to go. I took an old styrofoam life ring from when we had our boat, carved round holes in it, covered it with purple and gold velvet ribbon, and made a gorgeous advent wreath for the table. It is just beautiful and a reminder of the time that was spent preparing for the coming of the Messiah. I will be getting a set next year to start fresh, and use what is left of this set for individual candles. Definitely worth the price.
When I looked at our old Advent Candles, I knew that they needed to be replaced. When I checked the cost and size, it was a no-brainer. After placing the order, I saw that the candles were on back order. I was so disappointed but later overjoyed when they arrived before Advent was over. The candles looked so nice in our church during the Advent season.
For some reason the local craft store decided not to carry advent quality candles this year and the annual trip to get them sent us on a hunt.... Your shipment was a blessing and as we light the candles each week at church I thank God for you... We will be using you next year....the local Christian book store sadly carries them but the cost was a lot higher....
