Buying balsa online

Can anyone suggest where I can buy Balsa online. I want a U.K site if possible, but would purchase from overseas if it was a reliable company.

Most of the UK online stores sell balsa e.g.

http://www.inwoodmodels.co.uk/system/index.html
http://www.blackburnmodels.com/
http://www.sussex-model-centre.co.uk/6-model-accessories-materials.htm

I can't vouch for the quality of their online balsa ordering, I usually prefer to choose my own wood (from shows etc) or at least talk to someone so I have a better chance of getting the grade of wood I want.

I sometime wonder if ordering online means you get all the wood that the personal shoppers have left behind. But I expect it's fine .
