i should try this... ride a bike at parking lot of pet stores lol

Put an ad on craigslist and meet the person at a parking lot instead of your home?
Seems a little less shady than approaching people outside the pet store wearing a trenchcoat, asking "wanna buy my crustaceans?".

you should learn how to ship by doing research and stuff. Those shrimp can go for 1$ up to 3$ Each, and crayfish are way more, if you are willing to ship.

|somewhatshocked||The USPS will pick packages up at your home for free. That should further reduce some of the stresses of packing and selling.|

I sell on craigslist
And if I ship them, I would raise my price because I have to spend time going post office and take care of doa thing
Right now I work seven days aweek I make money and pay tax from it. So fish keeping hobby stays hobby

|mach_six||Being randomly propositioned to buy drugs or stolen goods would be more normal than someone asking to buy shrimps!|

|Merth||Yep you would probably make more if you found a "partner" that would do the shipping for you in exchange for a percentage.|

|hotrodprincess||I would buy them thats a price I could afford for our homeschool project. The girls would love the different colors.|

If you're going to sell in person.......
Meet interested buyers @ the nearest coffee/pizza shop.
If someone approached me randomly on the street, I would be wary of buying little neon colored shrimp. (The shrimp in the 1st photo looked like they were dipped in food coloring.) $10 I would definitely buy it, just prefer to have some notice ahead of time so I had a appropriate tank setup for them.
See if you can team up with another member that's close by. There's got to be a Philadelphia fish keeping club with some members who are experienced shippers.
Everyone in Philly can't be eating cheesesteaks, scrapple & pretzels all day long.
Too bad you're 7 hours drive from me, otherwise I would help you set something up in exchange for a sampler pack of your armored critters.
Other than that, gorgeous fish/shrimp room!!!

Try contacting them on a sale thread them meeting them somewhere to do the deal. Sure it looks like a drug deal but at least they are not at your home. Its what i do.
Or you could always ship!

Joon, have you tried putting an ad on Craigslist?
Your stock is awesome!
And yes, people on this forum would definitely buy from you.
