    http://www.sharperimage.com

    If you have something specific in mind, use:

    http://froogle.google.com

    It gives you lots of sources, prices and allows you to set price ranges too.

    There's always mrgadget.com, but for really geeky parts and neat "stuff", try sciplus.com.

    I used to enjoy looking at Information Unlimited's ads in Popular Science before we had the Net: http://www.amazing1.com/

    I bought one of their "Simulated Laser Kits" right around 1980 straight from the back pages of some electronics magazine. The thing used a 4-AA holder, a circuit that used a 555 timer IC, a couple of transistors, and tantalum cap to pulse a Fairchild FLV-104 LED at half an amp, a two piece telescoping metal tube, and a long focal length lens to focus the LED's already narrow beam into a tiny spot on the wall or whatever you shot it at. There was a pot on the tailpiece you could use to adjust the pulse rep rate.
    I wish they still had those. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/icon15.gif[/img]
    After I managed to blow up the LED, I got a "real" laser - a ML-800 HeNe (a whopping 0.5mW) from Metrologic Instruments. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
