There is often someone on eBay selling GLY2100 in small bottles, but
today the only listing I see is from someone in Australia, and the
shipping is quite expensive.

I have found that Tri-Flo dries out after a few months. I like
something that stays liquid as it ages, like Krytox GPL105, which is a
very slippery low viscosity synthetic oil. (Works well on scrape
flutter idler bearings, among other things.) Zoro.com has a 1 ounce
bottle for $25.91. If you want a similar grease, try Krytox GPL205.
