Looking to buy a Vijay/Haridas Vhatkar tabla. Does anyone have one for sale...

Or does anyone recommend someone that sells these?

I don't know where you are located but Keshavdas may have some in by now in his shop in NYC. He posted this earlier in the summer:

I may stop in on him while I'm in the city this Thursday or Friday.

Hi - yes we are awaiting a shipment of tablas from Haridas Vhatkar. They are inexorably slow when it comes to fulfillng orders. Hopefully we will get our delivery in the next two or three weeks.
Cheers,
Keshav

A couple of months back a friend wanted to sell a Vhatkar dayan, but it is a 5.25 in D#.

It is my understanding that Prafulla Athalye in Mumbai might now be selling Vhatkar tablas. Here's his website:

If you are serious about tabla, please do not buy a tabla, site unseen. Try it out yourself for the tonal quality. There are tablas with very poor resonance made by even the best tabla makers. I made this mistake couple of times. I even had a set made and shipped to me by Haridas Vhatkar which was of poor quality. Yet, I know he makes some of the finest ones. I have one that my guru got for me. Haridas made it for him, and it was so different from the one that I got. The prices were not much different. If you just want a tabla, it is fine. But, if you are a concert quality player, then check the sound quality first.

Well,

I dont agree with this 100%. Is all about knowing and trusting the seller.

If you want some nice Mumbai's tabla, I strongly advise you to see with Prafulla Athalye, he deals with Haridas Vatkhar but mostly with a wonderful tabla
maker named suresh that live in antop hill in Mumbai. The shipping box is made perfectly , and the tabla sounds always perfect, with a nice thick skin.
If you need his contact , you can check his website
