    Pros - Good communication, easy transaction, and he spent a long time showing me and my daughter his very awesome collection.
    Cons - None.
    I had my eyes on Aphonopelma chalcodes and he offered to sell me one of his at a very fair price. Since I am local I drove out to pick her up and he showed me and my daughter his collection, which was very impressive and everything looked well cared for. I will definitely buy from him again. He is knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to interact with. Thanks again!

    IMG_5358.jpg Purchased 6 tarantulas from Steve. My work had me working long hours out of town so shipping was a problem. Instead of shipping them Steve went the extra mile and drove from basically Seattle Washington to Portland Oregon. He had them all packaged nicely for the long drive and made it a breeze for my 17 year old daughter to rehouse them. Everything was exactly what he said it was and im extremely happy. I would definitely order from Steve again. Next time ill drive to him...;)

    Pros - Quick and thorough communication, great packaging, healthy tarantulas
    Cons - Absolutely none :)
    Recently I began a thread expressing my sadness about one of my Phrixotrichus scrofa slings that died seemingly out of nowhere. As this was the first tarantula I've lost, I was pretty torn up about it. After expressing his condolences in the thread, Steve reached out to me personally saying he had a 2.5" P. scrofa female that he would be willing to send me for nothing but the cost of shipping. This was totally unexpected and incredibly generous of him, and I sent him the money for shipping. We worked out the delivery date that night.

    On shipping day I received messages from Steve both by text and here on AB with both the tracking number and pictures of the TWO girls he had included: a 3" P. scrofa (an even larger female than he had originally offered ❤) and a surprise 3" female rcf G. rosea!

    Despite several hiccups with the post office/delivery process today, my two beautiful girls got here safe and sound! Steve's communication throughout the whole process was impeccable, and the two spiders were expertly packaged. I love these two girls already. People like Steve are such a remarkable asset to this hobby, and I would not hesitate to recommend or do business with him in the future. Thank you, Steve!

    Pros - Perfect packing, healthy animals, honest individual
    Cons - None
    I received 14 beautiful and healthy tarantulas from Steve. Some were from a local friend of his that needed help selling them, others were a trade from Steve's stock. I waited a few weeks for shipping because all of them molted in his care and to my surprise, two of the unsexed are now confirmed females! :). Steve is a wonderful friend and an incredible asset to this hobby. I admire his integrity, patience and kindness. He packed these tarantulas very well and I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again. I highly recommend him! Thank you, Steve! :)

    Below are pics of the tarantulas I received from Steve:


    10x N. incei "gold" slings (all are 3-4i and roughly an inch in leg span)

    Purchased a MM L.nigerrimum from Steve, easy transaction, quick to respond, and great communication. Packaging of the T was excellent! A little shipping delay kept the T in shipping for a week, He arrived alive and fiesty! Hope to do business with Steve in the future, Excellent dealer!

    I was able to pick the tarantula up myself so no shipping fees. The molt was available for examination. He was very informative, not just about the tarantula I bought but about other tarantulas as well. I really appreciate the service and I'll definitely be buying from him again.

    Pros - Great communication, Iridopelma hirsutum Freebie!, perfectly healthy specimens, took the time to show me his collection, overall an awesome person!
    Cons - None!
    Steve answered a WTB ad I posted here. I was able to meet him locally and see the T's before I made my purchase. All of his T's are very well taken care of, and Steve is very knowledgeable about all of them. I will absolutely be buying from him again, VERY soon!

    Thanks again Steve!
