What kind of "DIY" store have you been shopping at? A hobby or home improvement store won't have what you want, only a certain type of electronics store.

Get the phone book and look up "electronics." Try and find the places that sell electronics parts, not televisions-- call them up and ask "Do you sell electronic components like LEDs?" Alternately, try searching with Google for electronics near your location.

Now, if you're looking for latest-generation ultrabright LEDs like the ones that you'd find at our web store, you *probably* will not find anything like that at a local electronics shop, unless you are really lucky and have an amazing shop nearby-- you'll have to do your shopping online, and there are lots of different web stores to choose from.

Its very simple to buy LEDs, just you have to search on the net for appropriate type of the LEDs. otherwise you can look out for the electronics guide books or magazines.
