I've hit up all my local craft/fabric stores and can't find any 2" triglides or d-rings.  I don't want to buy them in bulk - this is for personal, not professional use and I just don't see myself making 20 bags anytime soon.

So, my question is, where do you all get your supplies from?  I would appreciate any tips.

i just placed and received an order from here: http://www.rnllee.com/

it was very fast and relatively cheap too. i only ordered 4 sets of magnetic snaps, they come in sets of two, so for 12 bucks i got 8 complete closures. they averaged out to about 1.50 a closure. much cheaper than at joanns. they arrived within a few days too!.

also, www.tallpoppycraft.com carries an extensive range.

Try thrifting!  That's where I get a good majority of my things.  There's a store in town called "Name Brand Clothing" (or "NBC" or "1/2 of 1/2" or "Half of Half",  people call it different things).  Anyway, it's a store where they sell leftovers from other stores.  The buy things in bulk so they don't get a choice of individual items.  All items that don't sell eventually get marked down to 99 cents.  They get lots of purses and the ripped, broken ones don't sell.  But I buy lots of purses there for 99 cents a piece and take them apart for their hardware.  It is SO much cheaper and you can often get things that you can't otherwise find.

Here's the store I'm talking about:

Sometimes I buy purses at Goodwill as well.
