Has anyone ordered from Icons Plus (aka iconsandmore.com)?
« on: July 19, 2010, 06:23:39 PM »
I have only even been able to find one icon of my patron saint online, until now.  I have found another one at http://www.iconsandmore.com that I would like to order -- but the site is pretty light on information about the company, Orthodoxy and any extra bits like address/telephone number, etc. so I'm a touch nervous (money being a bit tight right now). I used their contact us form to ask about address/phone and did get an email reply back (with a very brief personal note and the information), but just thought I'd ask here if anyone is familiar with this company, having had success in ordering from them.  I appreciate any feedback Thank you.

If this isn't posted on the right forum, please forgive me.

Thanks for that -- the first one is a different St. Juliana and the second one is the one I have in our family icon area.  My godmother recently gave me a small pin with the one in my avatar, and I've never seen it before.  I found it at Icons Plus yesterday.  I just don't want to throw money out the window, you know?

St Juliana Lazarevskaya is well-venerated in Russia. I have several icons of hers on file, and there are plenty of Russian sites which stock her icons. PM me if you're having trouble finding something you like.  :)
Am I posting? Or is it Schroedinger's Cat?

I just wanted to report back that I successfully placed an order with this website, and am very pleased with my order.  Kinda spendy compared to other places out there ($40 for a 4 inch by 8 inch), but it's the only place I've found with this particular icon.  The owner kindly sent me a story of St. Juliana's life free of charge (photocopied pages stapled together).
