    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)

    0.1 4"+ P. irminia (very feisty and that's always a good sign for this species! :) )

    I traded my MM to Steve for a B. klaasi, and also purchased a B. albopilosum. They arrived exactly when he said they would, and were packed safely. He even included another sling for free that he himself had bred last year. Good experience overall.

    Thanks Steve!

    Pros - Steve remembered me and reached out months after my initial inquiry which is so rare. Many dealers would just forget.
    He is very responsive and answered all of my questions in a timely manner.
    The tarantula arrived on time and packaged very well.
    His prices are very fair.
    Cons - None
    I ordered a female A. rufa and was very satisfied with my entire experience. I will definitely be ordering more in the future and would recommend Steve to anyone looking for a tarantula.

    I made a transaction with Steven and it was amazing. Everything was way above par. I just love dealing with members that are above and beyond with everything. We talked and shared pics of T's for a week. I'm super happy with the prices, packaging, and specimens.

    Steven is just an A+ guy. I'd buy from again anyday!

    Pros - Healthy spiders
    Great packaging
    Fast shipment
    Cons - None
    Picked up a Euathlus sp. Blue Femur and a couple Brachypelma sabulosum slings, both species I've been trying to locate for a while. I sent Steve a message and got a response quickly, I sent payment and the spiders were shipped the next day. I got them today and they look great! Very well packaged and he even threw in another sabulosum sling as a freebie. Very happy with the new additions!

    Thanks again!
