ESD wrist strap for a living?

Since I started watching some Juniper hardware installation videos (and since I am a licensed hardware technician and all), I wanted to get an ESD wrist strap for daily work.
So I go to my favorite component store, where they tell me they are fresh out, come back next week. It'll cost me around 2500 HUF. Next week the same, repeated the process a few times, finally got bored.
Quite a few weeks later it hit me: eBay. The source of all shite. So I fire up ebay.co.uk, and Hongkong to the rescue: GBP 0.99, free shipping. That's like 1/10th of the price here.
Maybe I'll start importing this stuff for a living.
