    I have never been asked that question before. Wink It will be quite hard to answer, but I will do my best.
    Various fossil shops, eg one in Norfolk, two up in the town centre of where I live, a few on the IOW too, get some at the festival of Geology (in London) which is on once a year, some are trades or gifts from some freinds living in the USA, Canada, UK, Denmark, and the Netherlands, I also buy some of ebay cheap, some online fossil shops, and I am given some from my family. I think that is about it. I buy almost everywhere when I have the money.
    I hope that answers your question. Very Happy

    Well, one of them recently closed down. Sad

    Try Jurassic Jim, Shanklin. He is really good, and has some rare fossils, like a coral from a bed exposed once every 100 years... geek
