It's only 15'. Price should not be an issue.
Use what ever is available.

All big chain Departments stores sells them in the electrical department. They don't have everything they sell on there websites. I beleive they come in 5-6' ft sections, and they also sell all the other accessories to go with it.

Just called a local True Value Hardware here, they have it but it's "stick-on", I am not sure about this, don't want it dropping off the ceiling. I'll check Home depot or Lowes to see if they have anything which screws or nails on.

There's a company that is called "Wiremold." They make both metal and plastic surface raceways. You can get all sorts of fittings, boxes, etc that go along with it. I know HD carries it. I think it is expensive for what it is, but it works in some cases. If looks are not an object, I would use EMT or ENT conduit and the appropriate fittings. Much less expensive.

This wire is to be run across my living room ceiling so I that is why I don't want to take a chance on a stick-on molding, I will look into all options.

You should be able to run some screws through the stickon to hold it up.
I've installed some but very little of this product. They sell two-hole "top hat" straps for securing to walls/ceilings however if Joe is right on this (and he probably is) that approach will look much better. My local HD, Lowes and Ace all carry the Wiremould brand incl. every box/fitting available. In fact, I noticed that most of those stores that I've been to in other localities also carry them. Maybe yours are simply hiding it.

As someone else mentioned, the stuff is NOT cheap. Even the accessories are pretty steep.
