    If you're willing to drive south of the border yes... but only in the summer as it is a seasonal item.
    I still have 2 bags left over from my last "expedition"....
    And no, they're not for sale...

    It's sold by 50 lb bags at HomeDepot in the US.
    I got it for $6.00us/bag... comes to under $10 Cdn.

    And no, no issues at the border..

    Ummmm.... I've got 5 bags of it sitting in my garage!!!!!

    OneSalty,
    It's about the size of the sugar sized sand from Caribsea. It's not from a beach or soreline per say, it's mined inland and then shipped to Pennsylvania where it's refined and whatever else they do to it. SouthDown was recently bought over by Old Castle in case you're wondering.
