Leaving the community soon.

Hello everyone,

Due to the losses we took at this last show, we have made some very big decisions, and have decided that we can't afford to keep this up. Because of this we are going to be selling off all our stock between now and the September show, except for the few herps that we are using in our educational shows.

Besides the shows the only things they we will be selling are hatchlings from our show animals, if we breed them, and custom made enclosures.

We have also decided that unless we receive a non-refundable 25% deposit, we will not hold, or bring anything ordered to the shows. We will still have a few unordered herps there, but they will be few and far between.

I will be posting everything that we have for sale on our website within the next two weeks, as well as samples of the various enclosures that will be available.

Our site will be down until the new one goes up, but if you want anything email me and I'll replay asap.

Thanks for the fun while it lasted.
Renée and Eric

Im assuming you are talking about the deposit for cages. I would ask for 50% deposit. That is what I do. There are too many people out there making false promises until it comes time to pay. 50% up front before materials are ordered, 50% upon completion and they have up to 30 day to get the cage otherwise I keep their money and sell to someone else. I have never run into that problem before, but I post it just incase.

Sorry to see you go

Greg West

This is a tough business. I have seen a ton come and go over the years. Good luck to you.

That is a hard decision to make hon.
Please do not let one show get you down.
Our first show we just cleared enough to pay for the table/gas and food.
This last show was a little hard on everyone there it was not as busy as usual.
Good luck to you and I do hope the sun starts shining for you.
From me Christina

I agree with Christina. Although, I'm sure you thought your decition out for a while and it wasn't just this last show, but we certainly will miss you.
I see you aren't leaving the herp world entirely, that is great. I hope you do well with the educational shows and continue to visit us all here and at the shows.
Good luck in the future and we hope you do well with the new change.

Thanks everyone,

Yes it wasn't just the last show, but because this last one was such a flop I can't afford to go back to college in September now, so we sat down and went over the expenses related to the herps and shows for the last 18 months that I've been doing this and the total comes just over 5K *yes I know it's not that long, but on a single 25K a year income that is supporting a family of four, it's ALOT of money*

I can't afford to keep everything and keep going to the shows if I want to go back to college to get a job that I will make a career out of.

I'm not leaving completely and I'll still be stopping into the chatroom every couple days [if I have time]. I'll be on MSN and ICQ as well, so it's not like I'm going to pop off the face of the herpworld.
