Candle wicks?


  1. Anyone know where I can find cloth wicks for an oil lamp? More like a small decorative glass candle. It is oil fueled and requires a smaller wick than I have found at Rite Aid, Bed, Bath, and Beyond, and grocery stores. Thanks!

  2. This is usually where True Value comes through. I'd try them first, if not then McClendon's.

    Merry Christmas

  3. Hormel, thanks! Unfortunately, True Value didn't have what I was looking for. I will try McClendon's. Funny, I was just on the phone with them regarding window blinds. They don't carry blinds, but maybe they will have the wicks!

  4. Also tried Target and Pier 1. Both were a no go. Never thought I would would have such a hard time finding a wick.

    I will say I found another glass oil light at Pier 1. I bought it for the wick that was included. It was on clearance for $2. However, it is such a pretty green glass I decided to use it for the holidays.

    Soon, I will have two glass lamps that will need the same size cloth wicks.

  5. Correction: not the same size wick. I need a medium and a small sized wick.

    Shed22 a few hanks (?)of wicking that I would be happy to give to you. To me they look like small and medium. Do you live near the Alaska Junction? We could meet up somewhere.
