This is not meant as an endorsement, but the question of where to buy certain things pops up regularly. Some of this equipment can be hard to find locally, so help out and add your own suppliers to the list if they aren't already there and either way feel free to add a line with your experience.

Please add countries alphabetically, and append new stores to the bottom of the lists in order to keep things organized, thank you and good luck with that shopping list!
