Anyone know where I can purchase some nice Icons for not too much money?

Thanks all. I even found one of the links even had my patron saint St Edmund of East Anglia. Which is a hard one to find being he was a western pre schism saint.

If you click on the decoupage tag below, you'll get some tips on mounting icons.  It might be easier just to buy them already mounted, though.   Smiley

I love St. Elizabeth's icons.  I wish I could afford them (the painted ones).  laugh

Holy Transfiguration Monastery seems to have the best 'deal' on mounted icons, and I've been happy with their quality thus far for the price.

Are HTM icons extremely glossy?  Glossy icons distract me a great deal.  I prefer ones that have a matte finish.  If they do have more of a matte finish, I will definitely buy from them.

Thanks for the links, especially the middle one.  I'd seen icon coffee cups elsewhere, but wondered if drinking from one would be be disrespectful.  I guess that's inconsistent of me since I like using icon magnets from Light & Life.  Having them on a refrigerator or a nearby file cabinet helps keep me sane.

orthodoxchristiansupply.com is a new company offering great discounts.  i know they just offered a 30% discount on all icons using the coupon code "launchsale" through their Facebook site.  you may want to check them out.

Stop spamming the forum! Until you can show how you're not just advertising for your favorite business, you are on indefinite post moderation. If you wish to clarify your motives, please send me a private message.
