    So i've been wanting to DIY escort cards attached to pencil starfish, but can't seem to find ANYONE who delivers Starfish to Canada!!!

    Do any of you know any stores in Canada that sell them or ship to Canada

    Also on another note: Has anyone had troubles bringing the Starfish across customs into Mexico I reallllllly want to have these for my wedding

    Thanks ladies :)

      I know that Michael's in the GTA carries stafish. They're a bit pricey though. The best solution I could offer is to have them shipped to a US address, then forwarded to you.

        a while back i posted my problemo!....... i purchaced starfish from the US and then i got a letter in the mail from US wildlife fed and they were seizing them and if i wanted them back i would have to go to court..... etc

        it was a sad day ... so i completly got off the starfish bandwagon so i didnt have to worry about it anymore...

          nmurch, wow that is good to know.

          I have to agree you best bet would be to have them shipped to someone in the US and then pick them up.

            I'm in Toronto and couldn't get anyone to deliver them to me from the U.S or Canada.

            I settled for generic seashells bought from the dollar store (a huge bag for $1.50) and more elegant ones from Pottery Barn (1 bag for $20 I think).

              I ordered sand dollars from a place in the states I hope I don't have that problem! Guess I will find out soon. They had starfish for sale too.

                Don't know what pencil starfish are, but Oriental Trading Company sells little starfish.

                Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

                    I know it wouldnt be the same, but i'm sure you could get fake starfish somewhere....i found some good ones at walmart - i live in the gta, but i'm sure you could probably get them at any one - they were in the craft section with the stickers. Good Luck!
