One can obtain a decent pot from virtualy any online dealer of bonsai pots. Also, check local nursuries in your area that may sell them. And remember, different websites offer different pots, so to recommend one would be foolish; they may not offer the type of pot you need.

Earl,

Here are two online retailers that I have used in the past. You may find something you like there.

https://www.dallasbonsai.com/store/bonsai_pot_index.html

And since you are in Florida here's a few others. I have never dealt with these last two.

Funny story. I went to a local nursery to pick up some stuff for the season and when the lady on duty asked me if I needed help, I asked her if they had any bonsai stuff. She stopped, thought a bit, then asked, "are those the trees with the big elephant leaves?"
At least she was trying to help ha. But the guy she was helping told me of a place close by to pick up what I was looking for.

I havent had any luck with nurserys or stores in my area for Bonsai supplies. I did find a small pottery shop that had a few hand made Bonsai pots.

I order most my Bonsai supplies off the internet, I found that ordering several things at a time saves money on shipping. https://www.joebonsai.com has ok pricing on pots, I have had good experiences ordering from here.

Unlike most places online you might order from, If you order a tree from joebonsai.com the tree in the photo is the actual tree for sale and comes with a humidity/drip tray at no additional cost. I have ordered a couple trees from joebonsai and I would recommend this site if you want to order a tree or bonsai supplies online.
If your going to have art in your house why not make it living art. :D
