Trillium Balsa in Tillsonburg has already been mentioned:
When doing mail or phone order, some folks here have found Barry to be somewhat slow in processing and getting orders out.
However I have personally found that his prices are very hard to beat and his product is of excellent quality! But then again, I always take the drive to his shop and pick out what I need myself from his stock shelves, saving both considerable time and money as Barry will give a great discount for personally going there, picking out what you need and taking it home yourself.
I have always saved more $$ this way even when considering in the gas to drive there and back. It might be worth your while to check it out or even take the drive. Plus as a bonus, you get to see some beautiful country scenery along the way!

Gee Gary, that does us West Coasters a lot of good! What do we get when we mail order??? The dunnage??? Oh well, no one said buying balsa was easy...
I really hate ordering from the Excited States, but it seems like decent contest grade balsa is only available in that way. Great Hobbies bundle deals aren't bad, but I have never received any contest stuff by mistake...
