    Hi I'm kay, from Herefordshire in the UK.
    Joined today looking to expand my collection, and avoid getting scammed as I have done on other popular sites. Hope all is well with everyone :)

    Hi. At the moment ive got 3 chaco golden knees, and 2 salmon pink birdeaters. Still a bit of a novice only been keeping them for about a year or so. But totally in love with them. I love to watch them grow from slings. I had a nasty experience of buying off a popular buying and selling site, and never got the item. So after that I looked for a proper forum. So glad I did :)

    There are some excellent sellers in the UK that use this site and some good European sites although now that winter's here they won't be posting here until Spring.

    That's great to hear. So glad I found it. I live in the countryside in Hereford and there is no local invert shops etc. So glad to have the opportunity to have a look online and have a good chat as well. Thank you

    Welcome to the forum!
    There is a section on vendor reviews, posted by members of the forum who have purchased from the market section, you might find that interesting and helpful.
    Of course there is a wealth of information to be uncovered by searching various words and terms, that will keep you busy for quite some time.
    Enjoy! :)

    I have a vendor review and my latest for sale list is in the for sale section. you can PM me as well if you prefer me to share a list. I usually have a lot of slings and have helped find forever homes for a number of UK members on this forum. Hopefully one bad experience will soon be forgotten when you see that there are a number of genuine Taranrula enthusiasts around. :T::T::T:
