where to buy a molcajete/tejolote?

Depends on what exactly you are looking for. For true Mexican salsas and guacamoles there is no substitute for good quality lava rock. The molcahete is properly coarse to grind things like tomatoes, tomatillos, chiles, etc.. It also imparts a distinct mineral-y flavor.

If you want it to grind spices and pound garlic however, something less porous like what Xanadude suggested would be a better option.

If your worried about the feet doing damage, a thick towel folded in four does the trick, stops it from moving as well.

It's pretty tough these days finding a quality molcahete, here in the U.S. or in Mexico. Try the link below. These are good, with the tejolote. Located in the eastbay so shipping time is usually short.

Napa wineries with chardonnays with heavy malolactic fermentation, as well as good pinots.

Rombauer should fit the bill.
