I buy mine in a fabric shop . Last batch came from a Singer sewing machine outlet, about 1/4 the price of the LHS.

Typicall Wally carries 2 sizes that I found. They are called "quilting pins" to the Wally's, Zellers and fabric stores. A bit cheaper than the LHS but the amounts we are talking about are still small

Found great pins last time I was dragged into a craft store. they were called florist's pins. Good steel, 2" long, and a nice big bead on the end. Used for pinning on corsages and boutineers,buttonears...youknow, the damned flower you wear at weddings.
