I am not sure about a wholesale shop or where you live,but we have craft stores such as Hobby Loby, Michaels and Joann Fabrics. Those are all good places to look. I am sure somewhere on the internet you could find paraffin wax. Good luck and happy candle making. I love candles!!

I've found that Michael's or Hobby Lobby are just as reasonably priced. The wholesale house is a tad expensive, based on how much you have to purchase at once. We priced it, and you simply weren't saving much and I personally don't have room to store a 50 pound block of parafin at my house. I am sure there are places that sell smaller amounts but the one block I looked at was that large!

Here's a few options depending on where you're located - there's General Candles in California(www.genwax.com - they do both retail and wholesale); Peak Candle Supply in Colorado(www.peakcandle.com) or DPS Wax in Illinois (www.dpswax.com). They have small minimums and offer awesome prices. Have you ever tried any vegetable waxes instead of paraffin? It's so much better for your health, environment and extremely easy to work with.

I'm not sure about wholesale either, but I thought maybe you might want to try eBay. I have usually just bought mine at retail prices.
