Uncut Mountain Supply has a secure server that I have been using to buy books and very few icons. Their delivery service is shipped on the right time usually on Postal Service of 4-7 days. I usually get them less than a week from Shipping date. I believe it to be reliable store for selling various sizes.

I have purchased numerous icons from skete.com, and I have found them to have very good customer service as well.

but you might not want to buy from them, depending on how picky you are about supplying money to schismatic groups.

The one you posted. HTM is uber schismatic and not Orthodox in the least. It is a member of the schismatic group HOCNA which alignes itself with the True Orthodox Church of Greece.

I got a matching set of the Theotokos & Christ from Light & Life Publishing recently and was happy with it.

Woa, I had no idea...I haven't purchased from them myself, but I have a friend that has. Everything went smoothly, too, when she did...well, good to know for the future.

Yea, from what I understand they have good materials and service...but just go to Orthodox Wiki and read a little about them....Terrible!

Generally I always go to a store website that I feel safe that my credit card can be used without any phishing techniques. I just hope there are no people who want to scam Orthodox buyers into fake websites. But I rather go for the traditional rip-off prices they usually set for Icons and expensive vestments and all the sorts for supplies to parishes on this site: www.istok.net

I just visited the Light and Life web site and I was astounded at all of the books, Cd's and icons.

Thanks to all for their kind referrals!

This reminded me of when I ordered an icon from Monastery Icons, and a couple hours later read an article about how they were a pseudo-Orthodox Hindu outfit.ÂÂ  I cancelled my order, but they shipped it anyway by mistake.ÂÂ  It was like the icon was chasing me.ÂÂ  :-\

I like the Coptic icons at http://www.theotokos.org
