Hi ladies! First time poster…I wanted suggestions on where you girls have bought votive candles and holders online. I have found two websites – quickcandles.com and candles4less.com. Candless4less looks a little cheaper quality than those on quickcandles so I am leaning towards those. Any one have experience with them? Also suggestions as to whether it’s better to buy the candles and holder seperate versus buying them as a set? I know when I’ve been to the craft stores the holders with the candles built in have a “dirty” look to them – almost foggy which makes me hesistant to buy although they are cheaper. Any tips are appreciated. Thanks!

I bought a ton of them on dollartree.com They were quite cheap and I was able to buy them in cases. I was just looking for clear glass containers so it made it easy. Plus you can buy in bulk on-line and return to a store if you don’t like them.

i second the dollar store – you can buy online but i would also check out the stores if thats possible for you.

I bought mine from candles4less and they were great. Clear glass (it is a little thin, not super thick glass, but it worked great.) and I also got unscented candles, burned for a long time.
I bought them seperate vs. buying the package w/them together.

I bought from candles4less and was a little nervous, but it was fast shipping, and they look great. I will admit have not burned them yet. I did get the bulk package of the dark blue square votives, I think it was like 68 of them??

I also bought all of my votive candles plus aisle pillar candles from Candles 4 Less. They have coupons often and even when they don’t their prices are very reasonable.

I bought mine in bulk from Quick Candles and I bought the votive and holder set. However, they do not already come in the holders. The holders are all in one box and the votives are in another box (so no “dirty” look like what you described). I received fast shipping and a low price. The only negative is that my candles were stuck together – like they had been around heat and stuck together (not bad). It was easy to pry them apart but that was the only negative experience I had. Once you light them, nobody would be able to tell anyway.

I’ve bought two separate orders from http://www.gandgwebstore.com and they have been perfect both times! I buy the clear votives with the candles already in them and for a case of 25 it’s only $18.75!!! I’m actually going to be ordering a couple more cases this week and I’ll definitely be using gandg again. Good luck!

I love Quick Candles! I bought off of their ebay store, and think I got a great deal.
I got these holders for $9 for 12, and then 144 white votives for only $20!
A lot better than the $1.50 a piece the venue was goin to charge us to use their plain glass holders! Is that not the craziest charge? And we still had to buy our own candles to put in them!

I too bought mine from quickcandles.com and thought they had excellent quality. The glass is nice and thick and shipping wasn’t too expensive.
