Fry's now carries el wire from ellumiglow.com. Seems to be going fast though. Was stocked last week and they are almost already out!

where do you live? You could try to find toys with it and salvage it out of them

No such luck at Fry's-- in person or online. Nor at Radio Shack.
The closest thing I've seen "bricks-and-mortar"-wise, is in the "detailing" section of auto parts stores.

My issues with online shopping are, besides needing/wanting the tactile experience with the thing before I plunk down money, when I'm experimenting for the first time with new materials/ideas, I want only a "trial size" and and I want it NOW...(before the urge/idea gets buried!) ...., and I object to paying almost as much (or more!) for shipping as for the actual materials themselves. This is an ongoing problem for me.....

I agree totally with you about online shopping. I'm also very disappointed when I got to a site and it doesn't have anywhere as much stuff as "bricks-and-mortar" store. They appear to not want to allow you to buy what you want, rather only what they want you to buy.

I found that some times they don't always have all the things that they have in the store as they have online.
