Yellow Mustard Seeds - inexpensive source?

I am looking for a good, inexpensive (can those words be put together?!) source. Does anyone have one? Any area welcome. TIA!
I live in Altadena, and there are two fairly well stocked Indian grocery stores close by.
India Sweets and Spices
1208 E Huntington Dr., # A
Duarte, CA 91010
This is near the Target. Mountain Ave. exit from 210.
The other one is even closer:
Bhanu's Indian Grocery and Cuisine
7246 Rosemead Blvd.
San Gabriel CA, 91775
This is at the intersection of Rosemead and Huntington, next to Trader Joe's.
India Sweets and Spices is where I get mine. They also have other colors, sell in bulk, and have a lovely cafeteria style lunch counter. I use the Northridge store, http://losangeles.citysearch.com/prof..., but they have a lot of other locations. They also have fresh curry leaves, but you have to ask.
Indian grocers are the best source. If that means taking a long drive, check also at any nearby health food stores. Many of them sell bulk spices.
I just bought a large container of it from Surfas for about $7 roughly a quart I think which will last me a long time.
