Default DC / Baltimore Parts Houses?

Does anyone know of any electronic parts stores in the DC/Baltimore/North Virginia area (besides radioshack...)?

Arcade Electronics on General Washington Drive behind Marlos has an assortment of parts. I wouldn't call Radio Shack a parts store. They have squat, anymore. They're just a cell phone and battery store now, and you'd be lucky if the sales person knew what a battery is.

well, for instance, right now I want a 620 ohm SMD resistor, and it seems silly to pay $8 to ship a 10 cent part...

I'm just looking for a place to buy those random parts that always show up...

How about "scavenging" those from an old Computer motherboard?

Not sure if you are still looking for SMD resistors, if so, this is a great deal on eBay: 5000 50 value SMD resistors, sorted and sent in a box for $12.99:

I have bought from this guy earlier and have been impressed with his stuff and speed to deliver.

Good Luck.
