Good source for spokes?

I have a (now) worn-out rear wheel for which I would like to replace all the spokes one by one. The spokes don't have to be top-notch ... since I might fail in the enterprise anyways. Nashbar doesn't have the color/size that I want. Performance hardly has anything. The bike warehouse sells wheelsmith, but in bundles of 50 which means buying 2 bundles (at $25 or $50 depending on butting) PLUS the nipples separately -- too pricey for an iffy project. Are there other sources, or is this just the way things are?

Thanks!

Mike will sell you the exact number and size spokes you need and nipples are included. Shipping is reasonable and quick.
