Driftwood sources?

I have the perfect piece of driftwood in mind for the nano (5.5 gallon) tank I`m building. Problem is, I can`t find anything like it at the LFS or the big box pet stores. Where else should I be looking?

I`m keeping my eye on the Swap board but I never seem to catch Badcop`s manzanita. And anyway I`m not sure what to do with it! I have only ever used Malaysian driftwood, how do manzanita and cedar and pine and these other woods compare for sinking, leaching into the water, longevity when waterlogged, etc.?

Here is Amazon Mossey's Cypress: http://www.amazonmoosey.com/swampwood1.htm

Florida Driftwood used to carry some nice pieces of driftwood, but I don't see any listed today: http://www.floridadriftwood.com/

Ebay is also good for finding a nice odd piece now and then.
