Sorry, I only know of a place locally that sells stuff like that...  Sorta.  Most of it is quite expensive or on a much larger scale.  It's in Memphis, Tn., and I don't know if they have a website or not.  It's called La Costa Imports.  Their smaller scale items are similar and not too expensive.  If they don't have a website themselves, if you search their name you might come up woth something else helpful.  Hope I helped.

How about really spectacular Hatian art? I found this place in Florida and she's got a website, but I can't seem to connect to it.

I bought a huge round metal wall hanging of 2 roosters painted in bright colors. It was made from the top of a 50 gallon metal barrel. There was great stuff in that store. And, before 9/11, it wasn't a problem carrying that sucker with it's sharp pointy edges, through the terminal.

I go to Mexico frequently on business and was considering importing some mexican crafts and putting up a website for the items . Tough to find that stuff here in the USA and its everywhere in Mexico . I will keep my eyes open for what your talking about but really probably won't see much of  that stuff until 2 weeks before the day of the dead . Then it will be everywhere .
