Baseboard recommendations requested


I'm requesting recommendations for baseboard brand and materials for use in a small 1,100 sq ft condo in San Francisco Bay Area. What we are looking for is 3/8" thick, about 3 to 3-1/2 high simple, contemporary design (picture attached). MDF would be fine. Can't find 3/8" thick molding in any brand at HD or Lowe's.
Please advise where should I look. Thanks.

The same place you should look for all of your building materials: anywhere but Home Cheapo or Blowes.
Look for a real lumber yard in your area that is patronized by carpenters and other construction professionals. If they don't stock what you want they can usually get it for you.
By the way, why does your baseboard need to be 3/8" ?

Thank you for stating the obvious for this clueless person. I was looking for 3/8" because that was close to what was replacing, without realizing that going from carpet to wood flooring that requires a larger gap to cover. I am able to find all kinds of baseboard molding at a local lumber store.
