Is there a place online that sells traditional Catholic candles?  Looking for a first communion candle -- but all I can find are cheesy, modern-looking candles.  Thanks.

From my experience in local bodegas, even "traditional"-looking devotional candles are not exactly works of art.

Actually, those look quite nice I think.

@Leonard Are you looking for any particular type of candle (besides a beeswax one)?
