maracas w/Mexico design~wonderful customer service & cheap!!!

Recommended Posts

So I've been searching for maracas for awhile for wedding favors/place settings for the reception (no assigned seating; just a maraca in front of each seat). I, finally, found this store, Amols.com, located in San Antonio. They had EXACTLY what I was looking for in price (2.95/pair or 1.95/pair if you buy more than 12pairs), quality (from the look of the pic) and size 8" Traditional Large Maracas 8" Cinco de Mayo Favors & Prizes | Amols' Fiesta Party Supplies

 

I was about to place my order for 13 pairs and just get whatever colors they ended up sending to me, when I decided to email customer service to ask if I could get specific colors for my order or if they had any additional colors in the turquoise & yellow family. I wasn't expecting much bc, well, customer service is lacking pretty much everywhere in general these days.

 

Boy, was I wrong! Within a day, I received a response that I could definitely choose my specific colors for my 13 pair order. Yay! They had yellow but were out of the turquoise. He said they would be getting a shipment in that afternoon so they would let me know what they got.

 

A few hours later, they replied saying they had received a teal color but no turquoise. They said it was closer to green then turquoise so they didn't know if it would work for me and to let them know what I thought. I took a chance that they wouldn't think I was nuts and emailed a pic of my BM's dress and asked if they had a color close to the picture.

 

They didn't mind at all, I guess, bc a couple hours later they sent a color recommendation and a promise that he would personally pull the colors I needed and make sure they were shipped as such!

 

I know its not much, but it meant the world to me that they cared enough about my measly, little, 13 pair order to take the time and make sure I was super happy w/everything.

 

Anywho, I just wanted to share my little story & a website recommendation w/my fellow Desties! I'll make sure to come back and post pics of the maracas after I get them.

That's awesome! The whole reason I didn't go with those types of maracas is because I wanted something in my colors! I ended up with something else for a little bit more money per pair, so it'll work out in the end. Thanks for sharing, that's such a great find and I'm sure a lot of brides will be excited!

I just e-mailed them about my colors and he got back to me in less than 5 minutes! You are right, GREAT customer service. I have been considering doing the maraca's by marishka designs (I really love them) but have been having a hard time justifying the cost. This is a great option! Thanks again!

The measurements on these is (from the customer service guy):

The length of the maraca (from the top of the ball to the bottom of the handle) ranges from 7.5-8.5". The "ball" ranges from 3.5"-4" diameter.

Does this seem really small to anyone else? I had them envisioned larger but maybe this is the size of a "typical" maracahuh.gif??

I used Amol's as well and loved the maracas!! A couple words of advice: let them air out as soon as you get them because they have a very strong chemical smell. Also, pack them very carefully. The paint is fragile and will chip or scrape off if the maracas knock against each other during travel.

 

Congratulations on this great find!

 

Lori- These maracas are not small at all. They're much larger and more substantial than most out there.

    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
