Here is the list of most of my suppliers, lately I stick with Future.

                Note however that there may be a 40-200% price difference for some things

                Like 74hc283 4-bit adders are 2500 minimum order at digikey but future allowed me to order 25

                Future once had the XMOS processor boards at $65 but they were $100 from digikey

                Digikey lists parallax boards at $50 but they were $25 at parallax.

                Sparkfun seems to have consistent prices.
