Best place to buy plants and driftwood

Hello all,
I am looking for the best place in NH to buy freshwater plants and driftwood. I am working on a 75 gallon aquarium for my four year old daughter. She picked white pool filter sand for substrate. So i spent an hour or so putting in flourish root tabs every 2" in a grid pattern. Now I need to find a couple of nice pieces of driftwood and lots of plants for the tank. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Any locals that want to sell off some excess plants.
Thank you for your time.

It's empty minus the platter on the substrate.

I get almost all my plants from the for sale section here on the forums.

+1 on what York1 says, purchase via the Members Forum/For Sale link. Plants are typically in great condition, plus they've been grown in a submersed enviroment, not immersed like what is available at a LFS.

most of my driftwood comes from the riverbanks and a beaver dam. I'm surprised a 4 yr old doesn't want spongebob characters and neon gravel. When my daughter was little I had a hard time keeping dinosaurs and bubbling treasure chests out of the tank.

I've bought a few things from Laconia Pet Center and the pet shop in West Lebanon. Hit or miss on plants though.
