Look in your phone book under "Bearings". If you have a Grainger, McMaster-Carr or other specific bearing supplier in town, take the old bearings to them and get a match.
Be careful what you ask for since bearings come in a variety of ABEC grades from 1 to 9 and the higher number grades can be very costly and overkill for bicycle use. Typically ABEC Grade 5 is more than good enough.
I know someone who told the counter guy "give me the best you have" and was shocked at the cost.
