Lots of fossils can be found hanging around the go-go bars in Nana Plaza, but I don't think that is exactly what you are looking for!

You might be able to find something for sale at the Chatachuk weekend market.

I think dealing in antiquities or fossils is illegal. Here is three articles related to fossils:

Many times tourists are sold something as being some "genuine" old thing but it is a replica.
