Bigger items: PC RX470 graphics card, wireless router, gigabit switch. Surprisingly decent cheap soldering iron. Bits: veroboard, ICs, switches, couple of placky boxes, pots, caps, transistors, etc etc. Heatshrink, hookup wire. Set of Velleman ceramic caps. Can of Servisol. Three breadboards.

As I said before, I would have spent a lot more if they'd got the stock. Also a helping hands doodad which was disappointingly naff.

My other sources are mainly Farnell and Bright Components (great for job lots of LEDs, IC sockets, KK type connectors, etc.). Occasional eBay and even Amazon, also.
