I need a stick. Where do I get one?

About 35cm long, round, like a wand. Preferably brown. Any local shops without having to go to Spotlight?

This is where I cry because I'm a good hour or two from these places, and I'm still classed as Auckland.

Ike's Emporium in Orewa is amazing for material/lace/ribbon/buttons/etcetc.

And I get everything else online so not much help here, sorry ^^;
Local op shops are the best for random material hunting, old patterns, and cheap editable clothes.

There's an Ikes in Orewa? Ooo, something close to me XD.
I normally use the Emporium across the road from the movies in wairau park (Soz, can't remember the name). Also, I try use Vagabonds for my prop equipment (Look them up in the phonebook if you want to find them) Strickly speeking, they are a model/gamers shop, but you can buy good quality stuff there for making props if you look.
Thoug i havent been cosplaying for long, so don't take my word for it sweatdrop
