And, those candlesticks are ones I've been picking up cheaply as I find them. I'd like at least one or two more because candles seem happy in groups. The best part of buying used and inexpensive is the low-commitment; if I like something better later, I recycle the old back into the non-new goods economy. (which is one of the reasons why our current economic structure needs to change, but that's another story.)
