Can candles be repaired in Greater Boston?

I have a pair of crouching monkey candles wearing red fezzes. One of the monkeys fell off a 6 foot drop and had its neck broken.

Is there somewhere in Boston where his head could be reattached? The wick is the only thing holding the monkey's head to the body.

The monkeys were a gift from my college staff days which are highly sentimental to me. I'd like a seamless repair.

I have no idea if these guys repair, but, according to their website, they make candles in their Newbury Street location and also will custom design candles. So maybe they can be persuaded to repair. Certainly sounds like they have the facility for it.

Try using a toothpick. Just stick it into the head and then into the body.

Maybe go to Reynolds Advanced Materials and describe your problem. My guess is that they can supply you with some flexible rubber-like goop that you could use, after temporarily sticking the head back on, to make a mold. Then you could pour wax into the mold to make a duplicate
