I think you have a good consumer base here in this thread alone. Let me know if you decide to ship I will buy some from you depending on price it could be a recurring thing.

if you like person to person but you dont want people coming by which i understand as i got a bad vibe off a buyer today and started getting worried as he was on his way but took forever claiming he was lost on a road that you just go straight down... SO that being said maybe if you let me know what you have i would be interested in meeting you some where in the middle as i am probably an hour away from you...

...well isn't that a huge let down. haha. i thought someone with those epic fish store tanks would at least have a huge ass filter for it. but you're right looks like just sponge filters unless hes running extra filtration on top of those.

Joon, have you tried putting an ad on Craigslist?

Your stock is awesome!

And yes, people on this forum would definitely buy from you.

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!

Default 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!!!

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

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

Thanks
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

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

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.
Good luck!
