I'm in Atlanta but have been to Commerce. I'm pretty sure that place closed last year --my friend's sister was buying candles and stuff for her daughter's beach wedding and got great deals there.

Maybe I can sculpt a Lhasa Apso. I haven't had great success with clay but we have many art schools/studios around here--maybe someone could teach me and then fire it for me. My friend could--she has her own business making ceramic coastal creatures and fires them in her own kiln.

If anyone wants/needs manatees, dolphins and other pieces--she is good.

These would be small pieces which would generally stay inside. She might make some for outside--she should.

Try Michael's or some sort of Craft store... even JoAnnes... they are all having their summer clearance sale right now... all of the outdoor stuff is super cheap.

are you near Decatur??? there was a place on Ponce de Leon just east of the square....Heliotrope or By Hand. I think both are still there. there are a couple of places along PdL that might have something, though they may be pricey. I know a few years back my sister gave me a sitting cat statue that is still on my fireplace hearth...

I don't normally do 'cute' so I didn't have any ideas to contribute...until I got this sale notification.

If you would like a cat, check this:

Crouching Garden Cat - Plow & Hearth

Sitting Garden Cat - Plow & Hearth

Cat Statues, Garden Decor - Plow & Hearth

Search cat or statue...you'll find several.

The link for Maneki Neko reminds me of a sore subject...while still in FL we visited a local but pricey garden/nursery and they had a large, hand-carved natural stone Lucky Cat...not poured composite, actually CARVED rock...and not the usual cutesy-cutesy, more...antique-looking...it was SO COOL. They had a large one and a small one, as well as an excellent carved Buddha. I don't know what the stone was but I could not lift it. We grumbled about the cost and did not make a purchase. Ugh. When we finally went back, of course, they were all gone.

Shoulda, shoulda, shoulda.
