local places to purchase bulbs?

I need the 6 volt MR11 bulb that I have found online for under 4 dollars but shipping is 6 dollars.

Does anyone here routinely purchase bulbs like that at any physical retailers?

This is where I got my 6V MR11s. Shipping and tax are about $6-8 altogether, whereas the bulbs themselves cost $2-3. So I know where the OP is coming from. However, 6V MR11 are just not a very common item for hardware stores to stock, as opposed to the 12V version. I would check the typical places, Home Depot, etc.

Several local lamp and home/industrial lighting fixtures stores here all carry MR 11 and MR 16 bulbs. I use an MR 16 50 watt light on my bike.
