Allentown alpine strawberries?

I want to plant Alpine strawberries in my yard. NOT the regular ones, these are very small and have NO runners. I bought some over 20 years ago at some nursery near Warminster that is probably not even there anymore, I think I heard they went out of business shortly after I bought the plants. Anyway that was my old yard. I would like to plant these very much but don't know where to find any. I could even plant seeds if I could find them. Any suggestions for a source near Allentown. I wouldn't mind driving an hour or so.

Highland Gardens in Camp Hill, PA has some in their Herbs section, but the supply is limited. Maybe you could try to find out who they got them from and call that nursery to see if they provisioned any garden shops closer to you with them.

I bought a packet of seeds at Ott's Exotic Plants in Schwenksville. It's a bit far from you though (probably at least one hour). Maybe they'd mail it to you? Just an idea -- the seeds are so small I don't think they'd get crushed.
If you go be prepared to buy a bunch of plants & seeds -- they have some great plants there that are hard to resist.

Pine Tree Seed sells seed for a few different varieties:
