i'd also add when possible, get photos of the actual items for sale... and not go by stock photos... minimizes confusion and misunderstanding down the road.

Its in your best interest to build friendships in a hobby as it lends for a more enjoyable experience. However be aware of folks who are only here for profit and will play the "bud" card to score a sale. Nothing wrong with that but be smart... and understand most people wont give you a full refund if a deal goes south... at best, they will work with you to get replacements while you pay for shipping again, or refund the cost of the goods minus shipping cost. This is the main drawback in comparing to a LFS...
