I'll reccommend two sources: 

DeGrandChamp's is mainly wholesale, but do/did offer homeowner 

I will recommend 2 sources (particularly the first):

DeGrandchamp's Blueberry Farm Inc. 
15575 77th Street, Drawer NG 
South Haven, MI 49090 
(616)637-3915, Fax: (616)637-2531 
Bought six of their two year old plants, planted them this spring and 
have never seen more impressive growth etc. The only critism is that 
I ended up w/ 3 of the varieties being substituted.

White Oak Nursery
494 White Oak Road
Strasburg, PA  17579
Good strong plants.  Not as branched as the ones from DeGrandChamp's
