Candy wrapper purses

Ok, so this is kind of off the wall, but my wife bought one of those purses that are made from the folded up candy wrappers. Very colorful and cute. Seems that many women in town have asked where she got it because they want one too.

So, how can we go about contacting somebody to put together 10 or 20 of these purses, ship them to Oregon so we can re-sell them.

If this post breaks some rule about posting, I'm sorry just delete it, but if not, rather than spend $500 to fly down and negotiate in person, how can I do this?

Thanks folks

I cannot answer your question but do understand at least the first ones came from the Prison in Uruapan made by the inmates from their candy bar warpers.

I personally find them extremely ugly but to each their own.

It may well be cheaper to go back as Shipping to/from Mexico is very expensive & also very uncertain.
