Pros - Large variety, fair prices, no nonsense, friendly both online and in person.
Cons - None yet!
Just got a b. kahlenbergi from Joe at the reptile super show in pamona. He had an unassuming table and I almost missed him, but glad I didn't! He had a great selection of tarantulas and seems to know his stuff. The T I eventually bought was 1". He said "oh yeah, you can tell it's about to molt." Just got home from the show and sure enough, it started molting in the car. Fingers crossed that it'll go well! He was super friendly and introduced me to a few Arachnoboard folks who were hanging around his table. We had a great time and actually knew of each other's posts. A+ joe
Pros - Great selection, he made nice recommendations (when asked) when through no fault of his I read his current stock wrong.
Communication was fast and courteous. He was patient with my questions and understanding that this was my first arachnoboards purchase.
Slings were energetic and seemed well taken care of. Currently acclimating to their new homes.
Cons - I spent too much $$$
Will definitely be repeating this experience. Was my first time buying through classifieds. Seen Joe recommended on the board and glad I gave him a shot. Order was shipped next day. The whole experience was awesome beginning to end.
Excellent transaction with no issues. Would buy from again. Contacted me the same day in a few hours.
Pros - Very clear transaction.
Was very easy and very reliable transaction. Trusted seller.....................................................................................
Pros - Great communication, awesome selection, great guy to deal with.
Cons - None
Just got a decent sized order from Joe. This is one of the smoothest transactions I've ever had. Great guy to deal with and he has an awesome selection. Would definitely recommend. The shipping was incredibly fast and the Ts were healthy.
Pros - Awesome selection of sp., great communication, great packaging, good pricing!
Joe was great with communication, and his selection of species is amazing, there were so many to choose from! I was searching for several species of Avicularia/Aviculariinae, 6 of which I was able to obtain from him, and one was a freebie. Packaging was great, and all slings arrived in good health, coming from California to Pennsylvania. I will certainly do business with him in the future!
Pros - Great communicator
Amazing packing packing
All animals are safe - well taken care of.
Cons - None.
We have a dedicated group started on Facebook called
Too Many Legs.
Joe sent us beautiful lively specimens.
His communication was nothing but amazing.
He even went out of his way to give information on the velvet worms in case it was needed.
He also gave us a free one for the ride.
Can report everything has been amazing.
Pros - Joe has good looking slings, great selection, and is exceedingly knowledgable on the various aspects of the invertebrate keeping hobby. I highly recommend buying from him!
Thanks again Joe!
Cons - Con artist? Where? Not here!
Couldn't resist the pun, No cons whatsoever, Great Seller!
I got a Psuedoclaris gigas from Joe at a reptile show, and it such a cool little spider! I have enjoyed watching it eat and web up its new enclosure. Joe also took the time to introduce me to another invertebrate lover and was willing to talk about invertebrates for a while, unlike some vendors who just want to sell you something and see you on your way. All in all an awesome vendor.
Thanks again Joe!
Pros - Lots of variety at great and fair prices. Will help you find and get the T’s you want. All T’s are very healthy. Fantastic communication before and after the sell. Funny and entertaining and makes buying T’s fun.
Cons - There is not a Joe Rossi in every state as there should be.
I have been looking for an adult female M. balfouri for Smurf, my soon to be mature male for a while. Although Joe did not have one on his sales list for the expo in San Bernardino, he brought me a beautiful adult female M. Balfouri from his own personal collection out of shear kindness for others. She is healthy, gorgeous, and has thrown 2 threat posture at me so I am just unbelievably happy with her. Smurf is going to love her too.
I have never met, seen, or heard of a seller that was willing to let a prize T go just to help someone else out. Not only did he sell one of his own, she was sold at a great price compared to what others were asking for. Joe went above and beyond and I will be a customer of his for life.
My friend (who is not on AB) also wanted to purchase an A. minatrix if I found one at the expo and Joe had one of those too at a great price.
Joe himself is just over all a great person with high morals and has extensive knowledge about T’s. He was an absolute pleasure to speak with and I look forward to many more transactions with Joe in the future.
Pros - Great guy to work with we ordered. Great communication and great pricing
Got a free C.laeta
Everything came perfect all Ts look healthy and well taken care of. Would definitely order from him again.
