I would definitely buy from rachel again to support her business.
That said, I don't think its the shipping thats stopping people from doing that. Its the price difference.
I've seen pygmy cories here at places like petco down by union square going for as much as .99 cents. Thats pretty much a buck per cory. So that may explain why new yorkers tend to go local first in terms of sourcing out pygmies.
