Extremely knowledgeable, very fair pricing, tarantulas were expertly packed, excellent response time, and pro tips (even on tarantulas thistles didn't sell me).
Zero nil not a single thing
I had the pleasure of dealing with thistles over the course of a couple of months while waiting for an Y. Diversipes to molt before shipping. During that period of time, if I didn't message Allison with concerns over one of my tarantulas. Then Allison would regularly message me to make sure I wasn't getting too impatient. I learned that Allison was a very kind, and caring person, and a delight to communicate with. I wish Allison the best of luck and success in all of her endeavors, and I look forward to doing business with her again.
-Packaging was tip top
-Each T was housed perfectly for shipment
-Everything arrived healthy
-communication was perfect and she made sure I had all the information on the T's I received.
Allison contacted me for some isopods and it ended in a trade. Everything from communication to the shipment itself went smoothly. I would not hesitate to purchase from her again and would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for some T's. Thank you for such a great trade,
Great prices and bulk deals
If you are thinking about dealing with Thistles, I highly recommend you do!
I contacted Thistles about a post for P. ecclesiasticus slings that was posted on a separate forum - got back to me very quickly, and although the initial sale was quick she was kind enough to humor me with conversation.
Received tracking info Monday and Ts arrived this morning. Although I had purchased 2 slings, Thistles sent 3. Unfortunately one was a DOA - at absolutely NO fault of Thistles. Ts came packed like they were prepared for Armageddon and the DOA was in perfect physical condition with weather having been just fine for shipment. The cause of death is a complete mystery.
I told Thistles when they arrived, and she was fast to get back to me. We were both saddened by the death of the 3rd sling, and even though it was a freebie she offered to try and make up for it if and when I order again.
Spoiler alert; I will most definitely be ordering from her again!
Allison is an all around awesome and generous person and is great to deal with.
She always seems to have exactly what im looking for, and has given me a few cool freebies over a couple transactions as well
Communication and packaging is always great, and her animals always arrive very well cared for and active
If you get the chance to deal with her and you pass, you missed out!
I purchased a mature male Augacephalus breyeri from Thistles, she was great to work with. He showed up alive and very active. Packaging was great and she was very helpful with any questions I had! I would definitely do business with her again without question.
