I am trying to buy a few small components for a small project I'm working on with breadboards. Where can I buy parts in small quantities with low shipping prices? Thanks!

Welcome to AAC.

If you are in the Silicon Valley area, you can shop in the brick and mortar Jameco Electronics, or San Mateo Electronic Supply.

Disclaimer: I don’t live in the area and haven’t been in either store but I have made many purchases from Jameco online and before that via mail from a print catalog. The SM Electronics Supply store has been in business over 60 years so I expect it to be a good resource.
