Hey there!

Space sand--such a cool thing. So excited you are going to be using it. I spent a good hour looking and researching places in your area, and also had a very difficult time finding purchase locations. However, on Amazon (that does have 2 day shipping available) it took just a matter of moments to find several different kinds and colors. I might suggest doing the same search on Amazon for "Space Sand" to take a look for yourself.

Space (also known as Moon) Sand and Kinetic sand have different properties. Kinetic sand is great fun as well, but the key word with this type of sand is the Kinetic. Kinetic means always in movement. So as a result, things you build with Kinetic Sand will almost instantly fall apart. This is in opposition to Moon/Space Sand which will hold together a lot longer. I would not suggest substituting one for the other unless you alter your project to accommodate.

Hope this helps! Please reach out again if further questions arise.
