I need a source for spokes

Does anyone know a place online I can order spokes individually? Everwhere I look it's always in bags of 50 or 72 if they carry that size at all.

I need 292mm & 290mm 13/14g spokes.

I am rebuilding a wheel from my Peugeot and have ordered new rims and am using the original Normandy Hub which has 13g spoke holes. I wanted to go with 13/14g spokes, but they seem to be impossible to find or way to expensive.

Can I just go with a 14g and use spoke washers?
