Anyone in the UK thinking of buying bits and bobs especially US or Chinese ones (Adafruit, Seeed etc.) might want to have a look at Digikey.co.uk.

It's the Brit website for Digikey which is like a US version of RS.

Goods are shipped from the US but if you spend more than £33 shipping is free. If you use the UK site they add VAT onto the price so there's no problem with customs.

I ordered £54 worth of bits on Friday afternoon and they were delivered (from Minnesota) by UPS on Monday morning. I saved 7 quid by buying from them rather than locally too.
