Hello there! My specialty in the tarantula hobby is sexing very small specimens from molts. This allows me to sell guaranteed females at sizes that are not usually offered. I have 10 years of positive reviews from 2006 to 2015 in the old review section, so have a look. I sell mostly in person at shows in the midwest, but can also ship anywhere in the lower 48.

Pros
  • sexed at tiny sizes by a leader in the field
  • great prices
  • Healthy babies
  • Incredible packaging
This is the second time I have bought from Kiffnie and both times have been an absolute delight. It's a great experience to buy from an expert like her... amazing to know that I have a female, even at thumbnail size! Her packing of my T albo was the best I've ever seen. Spider was in a tiny vial with stuffing, which was wrapped in paper toweling, in a tupperware, which was itself placed in a small foam cooler and packed in with brown paper. That shipping feels like it could have survived apocalypse. She also included a vial with a couple small crix (nice bonus!) and the previous molt mounted to a dish, that was used for sexing.

Communication was perfect, shipping was fast as soon as weather allowed, and pricing more than reasonable. She is absolutely my seller of choice.

Pros
  • Guaranteed females at a small size
  • Small size means cheaper prices
  • Fast communication
  • Healthy spiders
Kiffnie was very polite and prompt with her service, answering as quickly as possible. There was a little trouble with FedEx delivering on time as it is getting close to the holidays and due to COVID, but I have no doubt that Kiffnie would've tried to resolve the issue if it ever escalate to more than a slight delay. I was able to pick up the T's from the local shipping center the same day they were supposed to come so it was only a 7-8 hour delay rather than an extra 24 hours. The T's came with a petri dish with their previous molts taped to their containers. The T's looked responsive and healthy.

Ultimately, I would most definitely purchase from Kiffnie again.

Pros
  • Great Price
  • Great communication
  • Low overnight shipping rate
  • Proof of sex
So happy I came across this seller. They are able to sex very small molts, so the cost is greatly reduced. The females cost the same as buying 2 unsexed slings and you aren't guaranteed a female. I really appreciate the molts sent with each girl, you can see the little spermatheca. I will absolutely be buying from this seller again and I couldn't be happier!
Great Ts

Kiffnie was cordial and answered all my questions and concerns. The packaging for the Ts was exceptional, and the Ts I received were in perfect health. This was my first time ordering off the Arachnoboards classifieds and I'm glad I did, and would recommend this seller to anyone.
The BEST seller out there!! Period.
