I need helping finding a new retailer online that sells Icons. I tried the Archangel Store online, but that place is horrible. It takes over a month for your package to arrive and shipping cost like $20. So, what's the best place on the net to purchase Icons?

I like Come and See for the variety and St Joseph School for the options. Wink

I think I would feel strange ordering icons online.  Kind of a too weird mix of modern and ancient.

That is probably just me though.  Fortunately, my parish sells them.

Get the Official Catalog called Orthodox Byzantine Icons[/u] and you fill out the money order and send it.

Cal-Hellas has beautiful icons, although they can be a bit expensive:

http://www.cal-hellas.com/

You should call over the phone and ask for a catalogue to be mailed to you.  The website is not that active, and orders are better handled over the phone.  They also have great incense.


Holy Transfiguration Monastery also has a large selection of great icons:

IIRC, it's the same as going to www.skete.com. St. Isaac of Syria Skete. (Apparently, it's again without a bishop.)

I ordered recently from Uncut Mountain.  I am thoroughly satisfied with the product.

I have ordered laminates from Skete.com in the past and no issues.

I have bought the majority of my icons from eBay and have never had an issue.

Here are some stores I've bought from in the past:
