For those that live in the Chicago area, is there any good tarantula store here? It's not that great having to keep buying online all the time. I would like for once to see ahead what I was getting.

Ditto Craig. There is very little in the way of stores here that has anything but roseys and pinktoes. Look Art up, you won't be dissatisfied.

Hi, has this changed at all, does anybody know? These last exchanges were in 2003. It would be great to be able to even be able to catch the expo. Its hard to believe in a large metropolitan area like Chicago there aren't any additional resources for keepers to leverage.

Thanks, Tony
