    What’s up, PA here. I’m up in the Poconos, travel to NJ a lot. NJ exotics is okay but expensive. Not really worth it to go unless you are trying to buy a pig or something lmao.

    Honestly better off getting Ts online through breeders or wholesalers, comes out cheaper anyways. NJ exotics had pumpkin patch slings for $100 I got some from a dude online for $10

    Anybody going to White Plains next month? I've never been to the expo, what's the T selection like? Going through the vendor list the only one I can see that definitely sells Ts is NetBug but I assume there are others?

    I’ve been there, usually overcrowded and overpricing. Sometime you can find some good stuff. If you’re close it’s worth the trip. I went to the last one and didn’t get anything but still had fun

    I'm about an hour and 15 mins from the expo so it's not too bad but would rather not go if there aren't many Ts. Wish there were more local places to find tarantulas.

    The expo is fun but definitely overcrowded and can be overpriced. You have to to really look around but I feel they have enough of a T selection to make it worth my 1 hr ride up there. I've gotten some good deals, make sure to visit the annex, they have a couple of vendors there as well.

    I think I'm going to check it out. I'm looking to add some new additions to my collection, and though I have some species in mind, I'd like to be able to browse a bunch of Ts in person and see what catches my eye. Even with the expo prices, I figure it'll probably balance out by avoiding shipping costs.
