Even though I have purchased from more than one variant I find Farnell a bit confusing.

I always wanted to visit the black beaches further south for photography but by the time I eventually got round to making plans they had received the £10milion cleanup !

I've used Bitsbox in the past for small component orders, and they do seem to have what you were after, as well as only charging £1.90 for UK first class postage & packing:

Others on-line companies that I've used are:
