Where to Buy Dia de Muertos Foods

I haven't had much luck finding items for Dia de Muertos here in Montreal. I went to Librairie Espanola, Sabor Latino, and a few other places, and I couldn't find what I need. I'm looking to buy the following items. Can anyone recommend where I can go to get these?
• pan de muertos (bread of the dead)
• calaveras (sugar skulls) or other typical Day of the Dead candy
• papel picado
Chipotle & Jalapeno
1481 Amherst, tel. 514-504-9015
The guys that work there are extremely pleasant & informative re culture & traditions of Mexican foods etc. Cute place too, with a cafe downstairs.
I just called & they said they would have some pan de muerto starting tomorrow and from Wednesday it'll be plentiful & available (he's not taking phone orders for it). No candies this year (says he'll 'owe' us that one)! Didn't ask for the other items you mentioned.
Saw lots of little white skulls - with colourful eyes and teeth - lined up in the windows of Les Chocolats de Chloe last week. Just thought they were wax decorations at the time...but of course! Dia de Muertos. Perhaps they were indeed calaveras! You could give her a call to verify: 514-849-5550
