If you don't find anything, a close second to buying dry ice is purchasing ice cream over the internet.

It arrives in a styrofoam box with a ton of dry ice inside of it.

If you buy a couple cartons, you'll have a treat to eat while you play with a bunch of dry ice!

Any theatre lighting hire/sales company will sell dry ice. If you let me know where you live I can suggest somewhere local.
