Looking for a source of balsa wood to finish my foam flying saucer...

Hi everyone,
My Local Hobby shop just closed awhile ago and I always relied on them to get my balsa wood for building...now I don't know where to get it I need it to strengthen my homemade flying saucer plane...can anyone give me a place where I can get some cheap balsawood. (Not sure if this post is in the right category, but I figured since my plane is a parkflyer it would be ok )
Thanks for your help I appreciate it!

Tower Hobbies has a good selection of balsa.

Craft stores, such as A.C. Moore and Michaels have balsa. Not cheap, but convenient.

Another craft store chain is Hobby Lobby-NOT the R/C seller. Convenient AND cheap, IMO.
