Croft Mills very often have cheap zip bundles.

I've had "selection" packs from various places, but Amazon, Ebay and William Gee all spring to mind. If I'm after long zips for my bags, I buy the "by the metre" continuous zips and sliders from Merrick and Day. These are only in 2 shades of beige though. They also do long coloured zips for box cushions.

My zippers arrived this morning from Nova Trimmings. Very pleased.

The MyDecozo video shows simply and clearly how to put a slider on a continuous zip.  I got quite good at it with a bit of practice.
