Even at Overstock, these candles are not cheap. They aren't an item that most people purchase by the dozen. It is hard to imagine how much more perfect the decorating industry can make a candle. The plug is eliminated, fire danger doesn't exist, no more spending time before you go to bed or leave the house blowing out candles (these can be on a timer). They feel like a real candle because they are made from wax. I wash my real candles by hand with cold water and gentle soap; I would take a chance and do the same with these except I wouldn't allow water to run over them. I can't imagine how much money I've spent on candles across the decades; these should last for years! Get some. Young people should begin collecting them each year.
Was looking forward to receiving this candle stand for a dining table. Used to work in the furniture industry and knew the company name from the inside box when it arrived. They were known for interesting stuff, but not for quality.. This stand was no exception, made of thin tube metal, hollow for the most part. Some of the candle holders were bent because of poor welds, had to bend them back into place compromising the weld strength when doing so. Thought about returning this but did not want to hassle.
