    I purchased some young females from Steven the other day. I received a C. Darlingi and a P. murinus female. I also purchased two Psednocnemis brachyramosa “Malaysian Blue Beauty” slings. The heat pack was still warm and everything was perfect as usual.

    Thanks again Steven

    Received a group of stirmi from Steven this week. Unfortunately they had gotten pretty cold in transit and some were in pretty rough shape. I told Steven I'd give them a couple of days to see how many didn't recover and then give him a mortality total. Fortunately most pulled out of it and are doing fine. He promptly refunded the cost of the ones that didn't make it. All in all a thoroughly professional handling of an unfortunate situation. I highly recommend him and will deal again.

    I ordered 4 G. pulchra. They arrived in great condition and packaged very well. One was even almost double the size that I ordered. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.

    Great seller! Ordered my very first T's the other day. He talked to me on the phone to give me some tips since I'm new to the hobby and helped me as my package was delayed due to weather (not his fault obviously).

    Thanks to how well he packaged the T's they arrived safe and sound. Don't ever hesitate to buy from him.

    Recommended. My first batch from stamps would have been perfect if not for a doa. BUT he did replace him as promised plus covered shipping, keeping up with my emails which was reassuring. Couldn't say he was at fault anyway. Shipped em proper both times. If he did happen to lose anything ethics gonna make it back next time.

    I made my first purchase from Steve at repticon dallas in 2014 and i have to say even up until now he is bar far the most helpful of anyone i have dealt with.
    My first buy was as follows
    0.1.0 Haplopelma lividum
    0.0.1 Poecilotheria Rufilata

    Both beautiful, both have molted once, and both are major gluttens.

    Next i bought 0.0.2 pocilotheria metallicas from him.
    Both came in gorgeous and well taken care of.
    One has molted out to a male the other is in pre molt and looking heavily female.

    I highly recommend Steve and his tarantulas. He is especialy good for people new to the hobby as he doesn't mind spending the extra time to help and over explain things.

    I purchased some Pamphobeteus species from Steven. I got 2 P. antioquia and 2 P. machalla spiderlings and I also added 2 E. cyanognathus as well. All spiderlings came in perfect and the heat pack still warm. You can't go wrong with Stamps Tarantulas!

    Well I love Pamphobeteus species and I had to pick up 2 P. duran spiderlings. I also added 2 more P. muticus to the collection. Everything was perfect and Steven is my tarantula guy in the Lone Star State! Thanks Steven!

    Ordered 2 unsexed 1.5" Pamphobeteus ultramarinus during the "spring break inventory clearance sale" on Friday March 13, 2015. They were shipped out Monday and in my hands Tuesday March 17, 2015.

    Sale prices on those were too good to resist. Ordering online was smooth and easy, I actually placed the order from my phone's browser during a break at work. I contacted Steven a few times through Facebook and email with various questions, and received timely responses, so communication was great. Packaging was also great: styrofoam-lined box, heat pack, crumpled newspaper for cushioning, and the two spiders were each well-packed in vials that were wrapped up tightly in a paper bag inside the box. Each vial was very well-cushioned with moist paper towels, and an appropriately-sized plug on the top, which left little room for the spider to bounce around inside the vial. Both spiders came out very alive and healthy! And from the measurements I've tried to take, both appear to be over 1.5" as well.

    I would have personally preferred a "signature required" on the delivery (I did ask if it could be added after the label had already been created, but it could not), just because I dread the thought of my spiders sitting on my porch for any length of time if I somehow were to miss the knock on my door. Although I was home all day anyway (I work nights), waiting for the package, I just prefer that extra precaution; I'd much rather have to drive to a location and pick them up because I missed the delivery, than have them sit on my open porch exposed to whatever the weather is. But that's just my personal preference, and it still worked out just fine without having to sign for the package -- I was out the front door as soon as the delivery truck pulled up in front of my house!

    Very happy overall with the transaction! Will keep an eye out for future sales. Would recommend to others.

    I completed an order with these guys a week ago and all the spiders arrived exactly as expected. they have a better selection than everyone else and their prices are pretty impressive. the only reason I took .2% off their rating is because they only had three G.pulchra slings and I wanted five! It hurt my feelings lol .....all jokes aside I cant see any reason to buy elsewhere.

    OH and they shipped fed ex and it was no problem to pay the $5 fed ex fee to make sure the spiders were not delivered till after I was home from work! pretty handy I gotta tell ya.

    Was contemplating a little birthday present for myself, but wanted to feel like I got a deal on my purchase. I contacted Steven, he called me promptly on my cell, we had a chat with many chuckles, he shared with me a little exuvium sexing trick he's been developing, and we worked out a small break for my order. There was a little delay in shipping out, but communication was on time and there were no surprises. Packing was perfect, slings survived, & didn't mind sending my package to the Hairy Mob District for unloading. A little odd that there was no free-b on a $300+ dealer order, but I understand these things aren't guaranteed and I have enough LP's anyway. Steven made good on my expensive impulse and the slings' ventrals look promising. Extremely happy today, thanks Steven!

    Ordered 8 T's from stamps tarantulas on a thursday (to my dismay, they ship mon-wed haha) and got a grand deal on all of them. sale prices are outstanding. my only complaints are: I requested a cold pack and did not get one in my packing, and one of the vials had popped open in transit (not sure if seller's oversight or transport mishandling) resulting in a sling injury. All in all, fantastic seller and will buy from again.

    After losing my T collection to a house fire a few years ago I finally decided to start keeping again. I jumped right back into the deep end with a 4" Theraphosa
    Stirmi from Stamps Tarantulas. Steven was very helpful in finding me what I wanted and getting it to me when it was convenient to me. I'm hoping to purchase a
    few slings from him soon! Just gotta convince the wife first :biggrin:
