      I don't know what size you're looking for but I was holding a bag of smaller ones at World Market b/c I thought they would be cool for something else I was thinking about. I'm not sure how much they were but I don't think very much. Hope that helps!

        Have you tried Michael's? Or try a place that sells landscaping rocks.

              I was just going to say that too, I have the ones from there and they are a smaller size.

                Wait! I have 5 or 6 bags of black rocks that I bought and never used.. I'll post pics tomorrow.. the only problem is they're heavy and probably super expensive to ship.. I got them at target last summer..

                  I just found them.. looks like I have 4 bags left (used two for vase filler in my house).. some of the rocks look large enough to paint names on for placesettings, but others are too small..

                  I would check out Home Depot or a home store.. they would have unfinished rock that you might be able to buy by the lb.
