Where can I get body art quality henna in Austin, Texas, this evening, or in Philadelphia tomorrow?

I'm in Austin, Texas, until early tomorrow morning, when I fly to Philadelphia. For complicated reasons that are probably both irrelevant and uninteresting, I need to purchase good quality henna (preferably body art quality) ASAP. I'd like to purchase it preferably in Austin this evening (6-8 pm ish, and in the downtown or in walking distance of East Austin) or in Philadelphia tomorrow. If I have the luxury of a more specific preference, I'm looking for something that stains a warm light red on hair (like HennaforHair's Punjabi Prime) - nothing cool or burgundy, although I'm not looking for anything *too* orangey either. Any recommendations? Please?

A friend of mine did henna body art professionally in Austin - I showed her this and this was her response:
"I always bought mine online: there are no reliable sources of decent henna in Austin. However, you might send them to Arabic Bazaar, which sometimes brings some back from their buying trips to the Middle East. And Whole Foods and Sun Harvest might still sell it in their bulk sections. It would need sifting, though."
If you want to memail me, I can put you in touch with her to see if she has enough left over to see you directly, although the time restraints may make it tough.
