I've bought PICs from the local electronics shop before.

Sure, at many times the price of Mouser or Digikey.
But at 5 bucks, I didn't care since I was back home with one in under 25 minutes.

I don't bother with that malarky any more. I'd rather wait 3 weeks, then go from sealed envelope to my code running on a uC in under 2 minutes.

It might be an option worth considering.

Also, fwiw, I've always had success buying them from both China and Fleabay. The worst it has been, was discovering that some (most) BluePill boards have the wrong usb data line resistors - doesn't matter, I don't use em.
