    That's awesome.  Thanks again for posting. 

    I ordered the color specific ones and they are 8".  They are really nice and you can tell they are hand carved because the shapes/sizes vary slightly which makes them look more original and not like they were mass produced in a factory.  I recieved them less than 2 weeks after I ordered them and the orage ones were backordered so that even delayed it a little bit.  The design isn';t exactly the same but it is pretty similar.  Due to the fact that I ordered 100 of them, they ended up only being $1 a maraca which is a great price for something so authentic looking!

      Ladies,

       

      I just ordered 3 sets of maracas (light blue, dark blue and pink) as I wanted to get a true picture of the colors.  They will be here on Friday.  How's that for turn-a-round.  I'll take a picture and post once received.

        No problem!  That is a great turn around time and I am sure you won't be disappointed!  This is a great site and I would be lost without it!

            Ladies,

             

            As promised here are two pictures of the maracas that I received from Amsols today.  I ordered these on Tuesday and received them on Friday.  Not a bad turnaround time at all.  The colors are ordered were the Pink, Light Blue and Bright Blue.  The "bright blue" is almost like a navy color but a shade or two lighter.  I like the pink but my  only turn-off is that the Light blue is a lot wider than the other two and I don't care for the design on it.  That's me though.  Hopefully this will help others.photo.JPG

                These are great!  I just emailed them about doing certain colors.  I was trying to avoid lugging more stuff down there but I think this is worth it :)

                  I was feeling the same way and then I came across these and I just fell in love with them.  This way we know what they look like and we will be happy with them!

                    Thank you so much for this!!!!!  My colors are the same, and I just emailed them with this pic asking for the same.  Question:  why did you choose the 8" over the 6"?  I am just worried they are going to be big for the plate (I am going to lay them on each guests plate at the reception) and that 6" would be easier to travel with the 52 I have to bring!

                    ?
                    :)

                      I purchased maracas from windy city novelties, but I want to paint over them to personalize and change the colors.  Has anyone else done this and if so...what kind of paint did you use and did you sand them down first to get the shiny paint off the maraca first?? 

                      Thanks for any suggestions!
