Sourcing Parts

I've been flipping bikes these past few months to keep sane. Nothing high dollar - I'm typically tuning up budget bikes and getting people in the neighborhood back out riding.

Where does everybody get their parts from? I'm looking to get my prices down as it doesn't make much sense spending $40 on parts for a $50 bike. I like to replace the seat and grips on each one (have a local grip source for $5/pr) but items like broken shifters have been harder to source. Ideally I'd have a source for unbranded parts, but I've searched with no luck.

Any leads would be appreciated.
