    Try a fabric specialty store if there still is such a place with the advent of Wal-Mart and Target these stores have slowly faded from existence. I don't know for sure but if you can find a store that specializes in fabric, cloth and sewing items/material they may have what you are looking for or help you find them. If not there is always the web.
    Just a guess. Best of luck.

    The answer is Tandy leather. They have line 24 snaps that are high quality and affordable. You can order them online, and they were on sale recently.

    One very very important thing about installing snaps is what surface you are hammering on. If you have a little anvil or on concrete it works best. If the surface has any bounce to it the snaps tend to not set as well.
