    US electronics store online.

    http://www.futurlec.com/index.shtml

    Good prices and selections. Microcontrollers, linear and non-linear ICs, transistors and diodes, connectors.

    Not good for displays (LCD or superbright LEDs). They have stepper motors, solderboards, tools, and even PCB services that are fairly cheap (but have strict requirements on filetype).

    and a new UK site: 4D modelshop
    note the mesh section
    (I have talked to the shop owner, and he will be giving the mesh section priority (photo-wise))

    I apologize for not fully searching for www.froogle.google.com

    Its a beta price search from google, sorry I only see it returning prices in US based websites.
