I want to buy these wall mounted candle holders, but $70 for a pair is just too stinking much. Anybody seen anything like this elsewhere for less?

I buy all my clothes at Ross.

I'll have to take a look there.

Also try Hobby Lobby for the parts. I'm sure they have something that would put you close to those.

Try ikea. You can improvise w/ the candles and votives. I'm sure there are TONS of after xmas sales for stuff like that.

Also West Elm has some tiny blocks that are used as small shelves. Cool looking, but hold only small stuff. Good for what you need.

Too bad, I missed my calling for Straight Eye for the Straight Guy...

Couldn't it be dangerous having lit candles so close to the wall?

Hey! Are you suggesting that clothes from Ross suck?

Whenever I walk into Ross, I start to feel depressed. The haphazardly stocked shelves, the rows of picked over clothing racks.... Get me outta here!!!
