Did you need them for a self sourced Cafe Corner? If you don't mind me asking, what did it end up costing you in total? I've got around 70 bricks to get and have spent £114 inc. p&p etc. A bargain considering the cost of a set on eBay etc,.
You seem to be doing really well with your budget, impressive!
I did make a self-sourced Cafe Corner about a year ago, making the order for the dark red slopes right after the Pet Store arrived in stores. I think I ended up somewhere around $400 for the whole thing, having certain substitutions like the white 2x3 panels being the new type with side supports.

Just thought I'd let you know that I've now got these bricks, I took your advice and tried Lego. They were 32p each as oppossed to at least double that elsewhere. I took the opportunity to get the remaing bricks I needed to complete the Cafe Corner part list & about 90 ther bricks I needed for my 'Mog 'project' and including p&p it cost £25.33. Not bad at all.
Thank you again and to all who heeded my call. Much appreciated.
I'm really happy it all worked out for you, and I hope you are having fun doing this. I think I had as much fun getting the parts as building and displaying my set afterwards.
