I have found this ebay supplier to be a useful source of vintage electronic parts.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/vannadiy/...53.m2749.l2654

They sell a range, but with a strong bias towards glass components.
Nixie tubes, many types.
VFD displays.
Magic eye indicators, several types.
Neon lamps, numerous types, including b22 nightlight types.
Some specialist gas discharge lamps, including 28volt mercury lamps.
A few types of valves but not primarily a valve dealer.

I recently needed 'hard to find' spares for a Grundig Satellit 650 radio and found them at radio-antik a German based supplier. It seems Helmut breaks down radios and sells off the parts. His list is amazing. It's largely 'modern' German and other European radios. He does not understand English too well so best to use Google translate to email him in German. You can also translate the whole site by using Google translate, just plonk the web site address into the translater and it provides the address of a translated version. Also, he does not have an online ordering system as such, you choose the parts you want from his excellently presented lists and then email him and he gives you his bank details to make a bank transfer. My parts just arrived, took just over a week, well packed and as described. From my experience, well recommended.

Re my earlier post, #101, the supplier sells B22 mains voltage neon lamps that are hard to find elsewhere. An odd size, smaller than a GLS lamp but larger than a golf ball type and much larger than a pigmy lamp.

They also sell a rare type of 8 segment display in which each segment consists of an incandescent filament. Much brighter than first generation LED displays. Obsolete now of course.

And several types of miniature CRT.
