JandC photo has some flash bulbs. 5b's are $1.50 each. There is also flashbulbs.com. They charge $45/dozen for 5B bulbs.

My brother bought dozens (more like a gross or more) of bulbs from an ad on photo.net for $40. When I picked them up from the seller, he mentioned trying to sell them to someone on the internet--my guess is flashbulbs.com. The offer was declined. My guess is that these are not a fast-moving item.

They go for <$1 each on ebay.
