I had some problems with that sku# when I was looking for the sand. The problem was that Home Depot uses the same # for "Play Sand" wether it is Old Castle, Quickcrete, or any other brand. At least that is what I found. If you are having trouble finding it locally, Please have an employee lay their eyes on the bag and have them describe it. Believe me, I made too many trips based on the sku alone.
PS Good luck!!!

Looking on Home Depot's website, they advertise that they carry Coastal Supply Company Fantasy Sand in what seems to be the same distribution area as the Old Castle sand. Has anybody bathed this stuff in vinegar?

FYI--I could be wrong but I would highly suggest rinsing the sand heavily before use. Great sand but extremely high powder content. Very hard to filter it out.

Arizona?

Has anyone found any of this playsand in the Phoenix area (I'm in Scottsdale). I've tried everywhere I can think of and have been unsuccesful so far.
