If you are looking for straight-from-the-store "prop" swords and the like; aside from online, I have no answers for you.

However, if you are willing to spend a couple bucks - or even make one yourself, there are plenty of places to get what your looking for.
Most Dollar stores carry 'el cheap-o plastic swords that with a little imagination can be turned into plenty of cosplay worthy creations.

If you go take a look at any of Featherweights' cardboard sword tutorials, you will find a wealth of low cost sword ideas.

You can always commission someone ^_^ (I'm a wooden prop commissioner, I have to advertise)

As far as finding cosplay swords and props in your area, try ren faires. Ren faires usually have a wide variety of cosplay-type props including various forms of armour, wooden swords, shields, staffs, etc. However most of these items are pretty generic looking, and of course tend to be themed around Europe in the middle ages. But hey, if you're looking for a good base to start working with you can find unfinished wooden swords to embelish.
