  • Only One Pair

    OOPS! We missed the fact that we would receive only one pair. Of course we were disappointed because we were looking forward to receiving the whole variety of the color we chose which was "Harvest Greens." That being said, the two candles are quite unique. However, they seemed rather costly and it is not likely that we will buy more.

  • South African Candles

    Beautifully done. I bought 5 pairs of them and gave them as gifts, keeping one pair for myself. I bought them at $**** a pair. Would continue to buy more at that price.

  • Colorful Candle Tapers

    I found these candles to be everything promised and exactly what I was hoping for. it was difficult finding the colors I was looking for, but these candles came in so many different colors that I found exactly what I was looking for -- they will find a home in a very colorful candle holder from Central America.

  • nice looking candles

    I would not recommend this product on Overstock to anyone only because I found similar ones, even more beautiful, for $$$ a piece at ***. Other than that the candles are great and they add a nice decorative touch and bring comfort to any homes.
