Home Depot or Lowes has small packages. Fastenal would sell by the 100. They should have an online site too. Fastenal

Local Hardware had #4 by 5/8 woodscrews in a package under 5.00

McMaster-Carr has them too. Not sure the exact specs you need but chances are they have them.

ACE HARDWARE. ACE is probably one of the most underated/under-advertised retailer, but tell ya what, they have some of the most off the wall hardware. Especially if it's an old town ACE local hardware store. It's the first place I go for hardware items such as this.
