It's very easy for me to buy veladoras where I live, but the 'Virgencita' images of cartoon-like kid drawings on candles are almost impossible to find. The price is reasonable given their 'rarity'. I bought these as Communion favors. Shipping/packaging was excellent - I ordered over 20 candles (same candles, different images); not one was broken.
Pros:Adorable images on candles; the glass design is sturdy and allows for reuse- which is not possible with traditional (tall, cylindrical) veladoras, which must be thrown out after use
Cons:Very Minor: there is a round sticker that says 'con Aroma' and on most candles (28 out of 30) they are behind the image of the Virgen/Saint. This is esthetic and keeps the buyer from having to peel off the sticker. However, once the candle is lit, the sticker can be clearly seen juxtaposed with the image. Trying to upload pic to show this.
