Sources for Great Snow Globes?

Q: My daughter is 2.5 and now that she's starting to understand things about Christmas a little bit more, we're trying to develop a set of family traditions to help make the season fun, memorable, and maybe even a bit magical. I'd love to find a snow globe that we could bring out in December. So far, I've had a hard time finding anything. I do have a couple of options, but was hoping for advice/tips to help expand my choices. (continued below)

I'm torn about whether to go with something clean and contemporary (I saw quite a few last year around), or more traditional. I think I'm leaning traditional so that it has more staying power as the years go by, but I don't want it to be too gaudy. I know, hard request when it comes to snow globes! I'm in Canada, but would be willing to order from the States if needed. Thanks for any tips you might have!

Editor: It doesn't seem like it should be hard to find a lot of great snow globes, but we haven't seen anything that's really captivated us? We're still fans of Robert Mahar's homemade ones from last year (find the tutorial at The Junior Society). Readers, do you have links you can share with Anne?
