    Yes
    Pros - Had exactly what I wanted at a good price
    Responded to my WTB ad very promptly
    Transaction and shipping went smoothly
    Cons - None
    I was looking for a female venatoria and a couple of 1/4" lunulas before winter temps set in too much and placed a WTB ad here. John responded first and after a bit of back and forth I was able to pay for the spiders and have them shipped when weather permitted. He threw in a fifth lunula to go with the four lunula and venatoria that I ordered. Two lunula arrived DOA (did not appear to be through any fault of John's) and after providing him with the evidence he requested he refunded me the cost of one as the fifth was free. No complaints about how that was handled. A+

    Anyway, it's been couple of months and all are doing well. The venatoria even made an egg sac (infertile) for me soon after being rehoused. The lunula are growing fine.

    I would not hesitate to recommend him for future purchases.

    John was easy to communicate with, the packing was great, and the spiders were healthy and perfect. He shipped his end of the trade when he said he would. All in all, it was a great transaction!

    Pros - Easy to work with, kept in touch the whole time and always informed me of what was going on. Most importantly, he actually sent babies back which is rare in a breeding loan.
    Cons - none
    Well worth my time and money shipping males to John for a loan. Great breeder, easy to work with. Very trust worthy and I already sent another male out to him. I wouldn't hesitate to buy anything from him.

    Later, Tom

    Pros - Generous pricing
    All slings arrived in good health
    Great packaging
    Good communication
    Cons - None
    I contacted John to see if he had any slings left from his posting last year and indeed he did, larger now, and he offered me a generous price so I bought two of them. He was easy to work with and shipped on the day that I requested based on the weather forecast in my area. My slings arrived in excellent packaging and as if that was not enough, he included a third! :joyful:

    Thank you again! :happy:

    I bought two adult female T's from John. I am extremely pleased with the whole transaction. His T's are clearly well fed and cared for, his packaging was top notch, and he's very easy to communicate with. Couldn't ask for a better transaction. IMG_0600-resized.png IMG_0605-resized.png
