How to find electric Candles

Battery operated candle compilation

My question: Are there reliable, inexpensive
battery-operated candles to be found? If so, where?

The responses:

Battery operated candles are available through MusicK8
Marketplace. They keep them in stock, and sell them by
the zillions every year. Kandle Lights from

over 100 high school students and would not recommend

Thanks for all the replies!

RE: "I got these candles for my choir in the Gamble Catalog,
