If this show is the same as the The Chicagoland Animal Hobbyist Expo on 5-20-07 then I'm vending there and will gladly welcome any visitors who wish to stop by.

Yeah, its the same one. When I lived in Chicago it was Lee Watson's reptile swap. Im a bit nervous about finding the new location, Im sure Ill still remember my way around pretty well, but who knows.

I would have been up a creek if I didn't have my handy Tom Tom portable GPS car navigation system. If you need directions shoot me a PM and I'll be glad to help too :) .

I can't wait!

I am most likely going. I have seen stonemantis' post about it here on the boards before, and an employee at my local Petco just recently told me about the Lee Watsons show in Schaumburg. I looked it up and all I found was this one. Which seems to be one and the same. I figured it was worth the two hour drive to come check it out. :drool: I thought about going last weekend but funds were a little tight so I thought I'd try it out on the 20th instead. Maybe we'll see some of you there.

I always go once a month and their selection of scorpions and trarantulas is decent but improving b/c of the weather. There are three vender that post their ads here which are Adam from Jansen Exotics, Bruce from theraphosid breeding project, Ron AKA Only Exotics. Botar used to be a regular but now he rarely stops by. But these are my top venders and i would recommend them.

Hey Dan,
I know that Adam Jensen had some scorps last time. He had some pretty cool stuff from the Jordan/Egypt area. I don't know that much about scorps so I can't give detailed info. They looked pretty mean though. The one he showed me had a thick tail.

Dan, there are more snakes there then anything else. Adam Jansen has tarantulas and scorps, centipedes, millipedes, and some stuff he classifies under other, like tailless whip scorpions, some of the other dealers have an odd scorpion or two but you really have to look. Botar has been so busy he hasn't been able to be there in a while now.
Texas Blonde, thought I would let you know. Bill and Bruce rarely come to the show together, usually it is just Bruce. If you tell them you are going to be here, maybe they would both come.
Maybe we can all get together there.

I will be there. I finally got a price list on my WWW site. Learning CSS and XHTML was not as simple as I thought. Hope to see you there.
