Friend of ours bought an old schoolhouse that had been home for 50-odd years to a compulsive hoarder. Took months to excavate it, once he discovered that not everything was trash or mummified cats.

One of the things he found was a box of spermaceti candles.

What do you do, in the 21st century, with a box of spermaceti candles?

I'm not sure what you do with them, but before you leave with them be sure to make a plaster cast to leave at home with your wife.
