ISO Pinata in Marin

TerriL Mar 16, 2010 09:03 PM

Anyone know where I can find a Pinata on short notice? I thought I'd have a chance to hit the Mexicatessen in Oakland this week, but will have to settle for Marin. Azteca on 4th in San Rafael? El Palmar in Novato? TIA . . .

    Thanks for the ideas. I went to 3 or 4 Mexican markets in Novato and was disappointed to find that all the pinatas were exactly the same -- a giant star-shaped mylar body with a few crepey fringes and Hannah Montana or Barbie in the middle. So sad. I will try Craig's and CP. I'm also headed down past Salinas this weekend, and should find plenty of selection there.

        Cost Plus?? Party USA, but they're gone from the Cost Plus mall -- do they have another store? Call CP -- they're very helpful.
