      I ordered small starfishs from oriental trading, none of them were broke but they were really small. They had a very fishy odor, they are still on my back porch--dont know if I'm gonna use them b.c I dont want them stinkin up my suitcase!

        WOW - I just priced an order thru Oriental Trading for starfish - my total order was $16.99 - they were going to charge $25.00 for shipping.

        Bummer, I can't find anything in Canada.

          I got my order TWO days after I ordered it! And I am not kidding you when I say NOT A SINGLE STARFISH WAS BROKEN! There is 25 perfect sugar starfish now waiting for me to make my aisle decorations!

          I really only needed about 10 of these, but I was keeping the thought in the back of my head that what if I only got lucky the first time I ordered from them and there not always that perfect. I was wrong.. again! These do have a tiny bit of an odor to them though. I just cut the bags open and stuck em in my garage and they're already smelling better!

            PVBride2010-sorry to hear that I was really worried about that too. Read the reviews on oriental trading companys shells and everyone complained of them stinking really bad. The ones I got from this place do not have an odor at all and there is 100 of them in each bag.

            Negrilbridetoo- All the shells I saw at Wal Mart and the local craft stores had been picked thru and only the broken ones were left. I got desperate and decided to take my chances ordering off the internet.

            Indy_chic-Im not sure how much shipping would cost you from this place, but I know they are located in Florida. My shipping was about $8 and I live in Florida.

              This is exactly what I was looking for. My brother travels to the US for work so I'm going to have these shipped to his workplace. He's gonna hate me ... but whatever ....

                  Jeninesmom- I actually bought my curly raffia at our local craft store, Hobby Lobby.

                  Sunandsand- You truly will not regret ordering from this place. They rock!

                  Here is a picture of my practice one:

                  Its a little messy cuz everyone was tugging and pulling at it to see if they hot glue would really hold up.

                    This place is awesome! I just placed my order today and I can't wait to get everything in! We're having a very small wedding so I didn't need as much as others, but still, can't wait! AND, very reasonably priced :)
