I'd first recommend supporting any local hobby stores you may have (you
didn't give a location, so that shoots down anyone recommending one).
Secondarily, try and support whoever might be supporting any local
rocketry clubs that you have. Barring that, for engines, I've had great
service from Commonwealth Displays, A2Z Hobbies, eHobbies, Red Arrow
Hobbies, and a few others that I'm sure folks will chime in on.
As far as the actual rockets, in addition to what you may be familiar
with (Estes, etc.), there are new vendors out there now such as
FlisKits, Sunward, Apogee, etc.

Try WalMart - they have the basic A through C motors, and they may
even have a few kits available. I don't remember ever seeing *parts*
there, though. You may also find kits and motors at your local
Michael's Arts & Crafts.
