Submission + - Parts inventory for a hobby electronics shop? 1

KGBear writes: I recently decided to go back to my first geek love: electronics. It used to be my main hobby 20 years ago but I haven't done anything since (well, got married, had a child). In trying to go back I realized there are no more brick-and-mortar electronics stores. It's all web. I was used to browsing store aisles, picking what I wanted or seeing something that would give me an idea for a project. My question is: how do I get the supplies I need while not overpaying for shipping? It doesn't seem smart to design something, come up with a parts list and order just that, then pay for shipping all over again when I need parts for my next project. What would be your ideal parts inventory that can be re-supplied regularly?

  • Seriously, if you are in a major city i bet there are still stores.. I know of no less then 3 in my city. THeir prices are competitive, and no shipping of course.
