We would like to carry Arduino in our store and would love some suggestions from you guys. Just post what you would like to see in our store! We cannot get everything but it will give us a better idea of what people are looking for.

Thanks,
Hobbytown - Sunnyvale

Well my suggest of what any beginner should buy before or at the same time they purchase an arduino board is a digital multimeter, probably a very affordable model to encourage it's purchase. Arduino projects almost always involve wiring something external up to the board and errors and damage can be greatly decreased if the beginner is using his/her meter to double check wiring, voltage, and current in the process of building their projects. Of course learning to use the meter properly is just as important as learning the arduino usage.

Don't forget clock chips & crystals, or modules.
Also decent shift registers, from the TCIP6x595 line, for working with 12V LED strips.
Logic level MOSFETS, good ones with Low Rds, low gate capacitance, N & P channel
Current limiting resistors.
100nF caps
parts to make standalone arduinos: blank chips, sockets, perf board, 16 MHz xtal, 22 pf caps, 10K resistors, 1N4148 & 1N4158 diodes, low dropout regularors, 5V switching regulator wallwarts.
LEDs.
LED matrixes
AVR Programmers
