Where do Coptic priests get their hand crosses. I purchased a small one from the Orthodox Bookstore (Coptic), but was wondering where they get the larger ones from. Also where do you get prayer hats and the knitted crosses from. Googling didn't get me to far.

I get things from people going to Egypt. Not always convenient of course but works out easiest.

I've seen Coptic blessing crosses on ebay. I bought a Ethiopian hand cross on ebay for about $25. It would seem that would probably be your best option on finding one without going to Egypt. On ebay now, it seems that there are only Ethiopian crosses available.
