Since I can't sleep and am up with a heating pad on my back, I thought I would do some searching for starfish. Here is the deal...I read threads from other brides and you will have issues ordering starfish from any American website as U.S. Wildlife will stop the order. I searched for Canadian suppliers online...no luck. So my thinking is Michael's is your best bet..they have their 40% off one single item this week so you could get the bag (It is actually Starfish garland) for 24$ and that would bring you to about 14$ not bad...and you can go back or visit another store.
I am also going to look for silver decorative ones...fyi the Tin Box stores do carry them...I think 2$ each...a bit steep so I am thinking online may have a better deal.
Let me know if you have luck anywhere else. I am going to call and check Crafts Canada...think they have them in several cities...Going to call and make sure they are still open in Edmonton as it has been years since I have been there.

Thanks and happy planning! This thread and the ladies on here are amazing and unfortunately making me spend more money than I should be spending!

I'm wondering if anyone has come across any good places in Canada to buy starfish? I've looked at Michael's, they do have a bag of various sized starfish, however I'm looking for bigger ones to use to decorate the huppa/arch on the beach with. Or, have you found any good online sites to order starfish from?
Thanks for any input you may have!
