As stated above, I'm looking for a store/shop that sells Vallejo model colors in the US. Since the demise of The War Store I have not found a reliable place to get paints.

Hobby Lobby carries a selection of colors

Where I live, Hobby Lobby charges about $1.00 USD more per bottle than any other vendor. It may be different where Chuck lives.

I always use the 40% off coupon for my Vallejo paint purchases from Hobby Lobby.

Local model shop, Hobby Lobby or Amazon

The Squadron Shop carries a good selection, although the navigation is tricky and they're frequently out of spray primers.

Yesterday, I was at a local Hobby Lobby with the wife and check out the paints. Hobby Lobby sells a bottle of Vallejo for $4.99 USD! You might was well mail-order them from somewhere online.

Online Gnomish Bazaar. Great pricing on paints.

Some HobbyTown USA outlets carry them. My local game store carries them, too, but their stocks were really low Monday when I was in there.

Micro Mark also sells them

The last time I checked, Vallejo was stocked at the Hobby Bunker in Malden, Massachusetts, and the Spare Time Shop in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

Maybe even at Adler Hobby in New Hampshire

Hobby Bunker filled a couple of large orders for me that were nothing but Vallejo Paints.

Was a couple of years ago, but they had everything I asked for in stock, at the time.

Over the last year I have bought them on ebay from hobby stores at normal prices.

I just checked, and Scale Hobbyist online has a good selection in stock. $2.89 USD a bottle. link

To add to Don's message, they have an only store (if you don't live in South Jersey)

Games Plus in Mount Prospect, IL is one of the finest FLGS still in business.
