I'm working on a project, a succulent type bonsai.

Can someone tell me where I would go to look for like a small old chinese man figurine or something like that.

I will show you guys pictures when I'm done.

Alan,
I use my old dinosaurs from childhood. Still can buy them at Toy stores. Turtles or lizards work great also.

Yeah...I found them on ebay...really wanting to do this project this weekend, was hoping that there was local, run of the mill places that carry them. We have tons of dollar stores. Think I will log off and go hit a few. See what I can find. Thanks everyone. I love paying only $1 :)

No oriental figurines at the 5 dollar stores I went to, and two good will stores. Tomorrow I will try our oriental supermarket. If not there, I guess I will just have to go order on-line.

If you have not already found them, my local nursery carries them in the Bonsai planter section. Try there ...

That's what I was thinking, an Asian market in your area. Sometimes they carry little figurines, vases, etc. or they may be able to direct you to a store that has what you are looking for. Bonsai supply places perhaps?
