    Thank you so much for your post. really enjoyed reading the back story and how you came to see my for sale list. I had also been selling on Preloved for a few years now but really happy that interest is increasing on this wonderful forum. After all, you are going to be more confident that the spider is going to a loving home. I have refused so many sales on a more generic site as you just don't get "the right vibe" from someone. Thanks again. :)

    so glad all arrived safe and well. been a chilly last 24hours so extra wrapping and insulation within the box was order of the day to get the most out of the heat pack. Enjoy your new additions hun x

    Thanks @Phil for a great delivery this morning of 4 Monocentrapus balfouri and a Psalmopeous victorii. Communication was excellent and we managed to get a warmer day to deliver, even so he triple insulated and heat packed them to ensure their safety. Needless to say they arrived fit and well and ready for their new homes. Really pleased to have found someone who is really knowledgeable, cares about the spiders and is a real nice guy to chat to. I'll be back as soon as these little guys settle in and I spot something unusual again!

    Firstly i just want to say sorry for this late review regarding my order of new spiderlings from Phil (The Spider House ) in December last year. A lovely guy that's very competitive with his prices and very helpful with advice and information regarding any queries you may have have. My order was dispatched and arrived with little delay and they were very well packaged for safe delivery. Reliable seller that has very healthy stock and I would certainly recommend adding Phil to your Spider Supplier Contacts hence another order is under way this month should the weather permit. One of the Juveniles i purchased was a T.Stirmi which I'm over the moon with and cannot wait to see this beautiful creature. Happy New Year to everyone on the forum and keep up the great work caring and breeding these amazing creatures.

    I agree with you. I bought 3 sling from Phil last year too and I couldn't be happier with them. Great guy who takes the utmost care with his T's. Packed more carefully than I've seen from shops and perfectly healthy on arrival.
