Shopping List

The most common question I receive is, where do you purchase your supplies? This is, to some extent, a difficult question to answer as the “best” place to find anything depends on where you are. That being said, I my own personal goal is to shop with independent merchants whenever possible. So, rather than “shop local,” my motto is “shop small.” Your local hobby shop can provide you with the same supplies as its much larger competitor; nearly all merchants are happy to place special orders, if they don’t have what you want in stock. Moreover, they’re often wonderful places to find classes, gaming groups, and other learning and socializing opportunities.

The good news is that, today, nearly everyone ships internationally. Even if the nearest hobby shop is a thousand kilometers away, you don’t have to miss out! Every source I’ve listed below is friendly, knowledgeable, and willing to work with you on getting you what you need.

I hope this list is helpful. Also, be sure to look for reviews of specific products on the blog! Over the years, as some companies have gone out of business and others have lessened in quality, my recommendations have changed. I am, too, always on the hunt for new products from new sources! So please keep an eye on this space, as I do update it regularly.
