What stores in the Seattle region are like TAP Plastics but for other materials?

I'm interesting in finding material-specific retailers along the line of TAP Plastics. I do know of a foam rubber store, for example. What about other rubber products? Aluminum, sheet metal, etc.
I'm not talking about what I can find at Lowe's or Home Depot, or even McLendon's -- although they do carry many more esoteric items.
For example, I was thinking of building a custom aluminum hard case if I could get my hands on the corners, edges, textured sheets, etc.
I'm also wishing I could get rubber in various thicknesses/hardnesses for home projects. (I love stall mats but those are usually too thick and too big.)
