Good source for carving burs, carving sets, etc. They also carry the Roto Chisels that create interesting texture on gourds that I'm really having fun using.
The Woodcraft Shop
If you need it, I think they probably have it. They have books, full line of burs, hand tools, chip carving supplies, digital books on CDs, power equipment, all kinds of sanding 'stuff,' woodburning units and pens, air brush equipment, Jo Sonja paints which is what I normally use. They also carry the large mops that will smooth the inside of the gourd and mini-mops that I use as a final sanding.
They have just about everything a carver needs. I purchased top quality burs from them to help me get better at carving. Had problems with my Micro-Pro carver, and they walked me through fixing it. Great service and fast delivery.
He carries a big variety of items for working on a gourd. Some of them are wooburners (Razertip, Burnmaster, Micro Pro, & Optima) and their pens He also carries Apoxie Sculpt, Inlay and InLace items, They don't have a web site because they like talking to their customers to make sure you are getting what you need.
Blue Whale Arts
Another location that carries a huge variety of supplies. You really need to look at their web site to see all the things they carry. I don't think they carry carving supplies.
