  1. Hi there and thank you for your comment. Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you but we were upgrading our kitchen and I was out of commission for a couple of months. I found them at Pier One Imports after searching for a while. Since I had the same trouble, I originally use tea light candle holders which is what is picture in the blog. They work great and are way less expensive. Good luck and please let me know how you make out! Dina
