where to get chemicals, or can I even get them..?

I wanted to make some glow stick material at home for a holiday party, but Alfa Aesar will not sell the chemicals to me or deliver to a residence.  my work sure isn't going to let me walk out the door with chemicals, even if I pay for them, but have them delivered to my work place. 
Are the chemicals needed for this restricted by the feds or something?  Anyone have any ideas?

Reading CD's link, I can see why "they" won't post some of the chemicals to your door.

Which chemicals are you having trouble getting, and have you tried Ebay?  I guess you better know your chemistry and safe handling procedures.
