Yeah, and there are peices on there, but honestly i do not have that good of an idea of what to look for or a good design eye of where to go. Not only that, but i dont know the difference in the wood they are showing.

I've actually got too much driftwood right now, need to get rid of some. I have never shipped anything from (inside) my aquarium, how easily is that done? Driftwood seems to pose 2 problems: 1. it's heavy, and 2. it's got plants on it, so needs moisture and short shipping time

If you think these things can be overcome, I'll post some pics for ya and some price quote!

Shipping things from your aquarium is pretty easy. Most items (plants, driftwood, etc) can be shipped sealed in a plastic bag and put inside USPS boxes or any box for that matter. Depending on the size of the driftwood, USPS has a Flat Rate Priority Mail Box that ships for $7.70 for weights of up to 70lbs. It isn't the biggest box but it may work for smaller pieces of wood.

There is also the option of using Parcel Post for shipping heavier items. That will be weight based and I'm not familiar with the rates. USPS.com would be a good source for the shipping quotes...
