Where do you buy your origami stuff?

Where do you buy your origami products?

I purchase some online and some from local stores like Barnes and Noble for books.

I have purchased from kimscrane and OUSA, as well as Origami Tant (subscription).

I treat almost any store I walk into as a potential origami paper store. I finally found the bright red plaid paper I'd been keeping an eye out for in a Mailboxes Etc.

I used it mainly for Christmas wreaths. One was the modular Gudrun star designed by Carmen Sprung and based on Mette units. I used alternating green and red plaid units so that the wreath/star looks like a red square interwoven with a green one. Others were from David Petty's books including his newest (I think) called Origami 1-2-3.

Most (if not all) my books come from amazon.co.uk.
My paper, is bought online from muji.com and some more is purchased from a local paper shop called Paper Gourmet.

I also tend to buy from BOS Origami Conventions.

most of the books I also bought at amazon, except of some hard to get books. I buy my paper in many stores and seldom buy things in origami stores. there are so many great kinds of paper out there, so why should I buy origami papier?
