Please note:
The following links are a backup of my own bookmarks.
Please don't ask me to include commercial sites, as this is not meant to be an advertisement place.
The majority of the vendors listed are my favorite suppliers and a few are just on my wish list.
I am not affiliated with any of these sites, I just like them for one reason or another.
I'm sharing these links because they may be of common interest, but I am not responsible for any of them, commercial or not.

I am trying to check the links periodically and keep them up to date, but things can change fast on the net and sites can disappear, be replaced or even hijacked, so again, I am not responsible for any external link.
