    Found this site off another thread. Not sure if you have seen it yet but it says proudly canadian and the amount is in canadian dollars, not sure where it is shipped from though! I am not using it cause i want specific colors but for those who don't care it's pretty reasonable at 38$ CAN for 24 of them, paint job is not the best though!

    First time posting a link so hopefully this works.

        Ladies, I checked out the Cdn party place website and called them to inquire about the maracas they have. You get 24  per package. Est. cost including shipping and taxes to the West Coast is about 49.00. For 48 (2 pkg) it is about $90.  Shipping time ~ 7 days. I think I am going to get the 24 even though that would not give each quest a maraca but my solution is to have 6 maracas per table (will be having 4 tables of 8). They may not have stock in right at this moment but plan to get more in about a week. 

        I hope this helps...it is certainly a better solution than being surprised about the total when UPS comes to your door asking for more money to cover duty and broker fees if it is being imported from the States.

          Thanks for the info! Did you happen to ask if it was possible to get all the same color?

            No and I can tell you that their answer to that question would also be no as they come in a package shown on their website-mixed colors. I first was planning to have all turqoise (my color) but then since I was finding it hard to get them ...eg. have to order from the States and even on Ebay one seller that came close to the size of maracas I was looking for does not even ship to Canada :(

            I decided just to go with the mixed colors. I think it might give a bit of color to the tables without clashing greatly.

            Good luck,

            Jenn

              Were arriving 4 days before the wedding, so I think I'll make a trip into town to snatch some Maracas!! Will definitely make the tags a head of time to personalize it :)
