    I recently purchased three t's from Casey, the shipping was cheap and the T's came all in perfect condition and everything was perfect, I will be ordering again! 5/5!

    I'm confused....I don't remember this transaction, lol... Either this has been a little while or this review belongs on someone else's thread....someone I'm sure will be thankful to have it there. :)

    Yes, it belongs in Jamie's thread. I'll delete it.

    I just got my H. pulchripes sling today from Casey K. As always, the post office messed up and I had to go there myself and pick it up hours after it was supposed to be here. Despite it being colder outside then its been in years due to the bomb cyclone, the 2 heat packs were both still 96.5 degrees and the T was fine, quite active. I have no doubt it'll be beautiful when it grows up.








    I give Casey K a 10 out of 10 rating. She's excellent. The packing was beautiful.

    I bought a pretty H. pulchipres from Casey and everything went great! Awesome communication, the packing was perfect, everything was totally smooth. I've ordered before from Casey - always very pleased!!

    That's great. My sling is eating on a regular basis as well. They have great appetites for such little things.

    Received a male gbb from Casey today. Great price and arrived packed well. Won’t hesitate to buy more from her (again). Thanks Casey!

    Purchased a trio of B albopilosum recently and was 100% happy with the purchase! All three Ts were well packed. She was super helpful and quickly answered my questions. A++ would buy from again.

    Hi there, sweety. I think you have the wrong review thread. I don't mind, lol....but it should go to the review thread of the person that deserves it. :)

    Nah Girl! I got the link to this forum from you. I was on arachnoboards on a different name. I paid you for the trio via facebook pay. I believe this was last week I had the Ts shipped out. I just hadn't had a chance to make an account and comment :)

    Oh that's right! I didn't recognize your user name, lol. Sorry! :) Yeah the 2.1 albopilosum, lol. I'm just an honest person. I've had folks accidentally leave reviews under my thread that weren't mine. Thank you for the review and I wish you the best of luck at breeding and producing a healthy sac! :)

    No problem! I should have let you know I'd have a different username. Glad I had the right name! Also I should message you shortly because you have additional spiders I'd like to buy :)

    Received my Chaco Golden Knee in the mail from Casey K today. Arrived a day early and the tarantula was packed amazingly. Overall great customer service and very satisfied. Would definitely recommend Casey to anyone and will definitely order from again!!!

    I ordered from Casey a while back (if you took advantage of the G. pulchra deal, you already know the details), anyway, they made it yesterday alive and well (nothing new there), packing was great as usual and the paper towel was still damp. I ordered four G. pulchra as well as three other species and behold there is an extra G. pulchra in there.

    If you were put off by the long wait, don't worry about it, Casey is NOT the kind of seller to rip off buyers.

    So now for the review: 20/10, 1000% positive, A+

    I highly recommend Casey to anyone looking for a good deal.

    Just echoing everything that has already been said in here. This was my first time buying from Casey but I had zero doubt that it would be a smooth transaction. Great packing and I even got an extra G. pulchra with my order. Will definitely be keeping an eye on Casey's stock for future purchases, 100% recommended.

    I found this forum through the recommendation of a friend. I had asked if anyone knew of a good tarantula source, as I was looking for some G. pluchra slings to raise up, and Yvonne recommended I check out this forum. I've always been interested in other tarantula species too, but never really found any convenient avenues to learn and pursue it. I was thrilled to find this place and all the info it contains.

    I started reading all sorts of threads. Found the for sale section and started browsing. Found Casey's ad for G. pulchra slings and it sounded great. I checked the "vendor reviews" section and every previous customer had great things to say about dealing with Casey. As soon as Josh approved and activated my membership here, I messaged Casey and asked if she still had any left. She did! I ordered her deal for 10 of them.

    Now here is where it gets good. I am somewhat of an old curmudgeon and I don't like all this tech, and apps, and paying for stuff on computers and phones. In short, I can be a bit of a pain when figuring out the best way to pay a vendor. Casey was always patient and helpful with all of my non-sense. She was very tolerant of my idiosyncrasies and we worked it all out just fine. She sent my new slings literally the day the money came through and I got them safe and sound, and well packed the very next day.

    Here I am unpacking the little cuties into the deli cups where they will spend the next few months at least, feasting upon roaches of several species.

    And a gratuitous baby pic just for fun:

    In summary, I give Casey an A+. I don't know what she could possibly have done to make our transaction any easier, more courteous, or more professional. And the product gets an A+ too!
