Try the Tandy Leather Company.  The last time we ordered rivets from
them was May 1993; therefore, things (prices, location, etc.) may
have changed. We order brass rivets and at that time they were ten
bags for $3.49 (each bag contained 100 rivets).

Here are two locations:

    Tandy Leather Company
    8334 Eastern Blvd
    Baltimore, MD  21224

    Tandy Leather Company
