    Well... I just got back from Repticon and it was a great time to be had. One of my friendly vendors told me a story of @Philth at other shows. I was told he (Philth) would go see every vendor and ID T.'s and true spiders with a justice of ID-ing everything (spider related) being sold. I had to laugh so hard because I can see so many vendors being intimidated by you @Philth aka Tom. You're a good man for doing the job of all the T. ID in the north-east ;). But I just had to laugh because the way it was told seems like an intimidation for vendors/sellers having T.'s for sale. :hilarious::smug:;)

    Anyways, good to ID properly of what T.'s are being sold from clueless/not-so-experienced vendors.

    Tom’s a stand up guy. Always answers questions.

    Which one were you at?

    I was at Charlotte, NC this time. I usually only go the first day to get the good stuff before it's gone and just not go the second day because everything good will be gone by then, so I don't bother with any second day for Repticon. But it was a good time to be had over there with the other vendors.

    One time a vendor at the NY show actually had a sign saying, "spiders ID'd by Tom Patterson" No lie, I never looked at their spiders or was ever even asked lol.

    Later, Tom

    I have to admit, there is a certain level of, how do I say it, intimidation (maybe? Strong respect leading to fear of being disproven in the eyes of the more knowledgable person? Not sure of the right word) when a person who is very experienced walks by and offers to check your stuff. What if you misidentified something? What would a customer think? Especially if you are trying very hard to provide quality spiders with quality service.
    That is awesome that you would take the time to help people out that way though @Philth.


  6. Hey Philth, your inbox is full. Do you have any sand spiders still for sale?

    My inbox is always full here. It’s best to email me at Tompatterson77@gmail.com or facebook messages me. Sand spiders are available.

    Dang. @Philth has been rather coy responding to my emails and I cant see his "last seen" status

    Yes. Sorry, I suggested Monday and you have yet to reply. I'm a little new to this online invert commerce thing

    Hey Tom, would really appreciate it if you responded to my emails. I don't want to be pushy but this isn't a small sum of money we're dealing with.
