Candles for power outage, car kit, EDC

Anyone know of a good source for candles. I am interested in 'plumbers candles' for power outage, car kit, EDC. I have looked at bulk candles on websites, but the shipping seems very high.

Did you check generalwax.com? You buy (1) box minimum of 36 "Plumbers Candles" for $36.70 including shipping. About $1.02 each. Even cheaper if you buy a case of 216 candles for $130.13 w/ shipping. About .60 each.

Checking the prepper blogs, you can't make your your own emergency candles for less than 1.60 each. There are a lot of plans out there to make your own emergency candles with local supplies.

Plumbers candles are excellent - compact, fat, fairly long burning, and cheap. I asked my local hardware store to tell me when they came on sale, and got a good price 25 cents each. I bought them out. Happy to see another source printed above, still a good buy at 60 cents due to their size. They store well too, but may warp a little in very warm weather if you dont store them flat. (But they still burn, even if they are a little crooked...)

Thanks for the replies.
Curt - thanks for the shipping info. I noticed the shipping was $6 lower if I ship to Madison where I work vs shipping to where I live. That made the price a little better.
Kathleen - what hardware store stocks them? I may find a store locally that would stock them and not have to pay any shipping at all.

I would also like to know the hardware store that I could get the candles from.

I didn't find any online at Menards, Home Depot, or Ace. I did find some at Do It Best. Here's a link to that page: http://www.doitbest.c...­

I am planning on ordering a case (36 per case) of candles on line. Does anyone else want a case? We could split the shipping costs.
