Default Source for linear wall warts?

Anyone know of a good source for simple, unregulated, linear wall warts in various voltages/powers?
I am looking for something with 6-9 VDC out (nominal) and ~1A, preferably UL certified.
Also, if it exists, an EU version would be nice, 220 VAC in, same output, with CE certification…

there are a gazillion switchers out there….

This is for a prototype which will have onboard regulation...

I get them from the dollar bins at yard sales and second-hand shops (Goodwill and St Vincent de Paul are the national brands, but there are zillions of local establishments).

For myself I can make whatever I need, but in this case I need something off the shelf available in quantity, which has UL certs… And CE for the EU...
