Home Depot, Lowes, or any other store with a decent hardware section. It's a sink or toilet water supply line.

Oh is it just the braid that usually is used as the line from the water valve to the toilet? How do you get the other end to close off?

First you cut the ends off, pull the rubber hose out, then fold one end over twice and smack it with a hammer. You can alternatively put a brass plug in the end and use a hose clamp (I think this is a fancier way to do it and it also serves as a weight to hold the braid down).

Just make sure you get the SS version. Seems that lots of the toilet supply lines are using some sort of composite/plastic material for their braids. Those won't work.
