    It depends on the city. They have shows all over the country. Some of them draw a lot more vendors than others. But, I usually go even when they come to my smallish city. It's not huge, but it's worth going to see what's there. I don't think I've ever been to one that didn't have at least one table of T's, but, again, it just depends on the city and which vendors show up.

    I went to the one in MD last year and was severly dissapointed. It was rather small and uite honestly all tarantulas I saw were over priced. I went there on a sunday but some people told me its better to go on saturdays instead

    The one in Baltimore in January was outstanding. It was huge, there were at least 5 vendors carrying Ts, and the variety and prices were amazing.

    I heard from the vendor's I spoke with though, that nobody expected it to be that large, so maybe it was a fluke thing. Whatever it was, I'm looking forward to it coming back next month

    i went to the one in Baltimore this weekend. It was huge, yes, but there weren't that many tarantula vendors. i found six. in comparison, i usually find 4 vendors selling tarantulas at the (much smaller) reptile show in Manassas.

    i live close to two hours away so for me this was a once in a lifetime thing. it was fun but not enough to justify four hours in the car.
