Best Place to Order Icons Online?
« on: May 15, 2013, 02:29:53 PM »
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?
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

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

I ordered from Come and See Icons a couple of times. Never had any problems.

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.
Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

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.)

St. Joseph School for Boys Orthodox Bookstore and Giftshop

This has lots of icons, books and other lovely things at very good prices. :)

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.
