    heres a little advice:If you are brand new on here and your first act is to try to sell high value items worth thousands,I suggest you go out of your way to let us know who you are and how established as a taxidermist you are.No info,no location and a hidden email set off bells and alarms with me,especially involving items like L/S bighorn sheep and L/S african lions and other high dollar items.I'm not directing this to any one individual,I've just noticed alot of new posts and posters lately.
    Just sayin

    and put a price!...I may make an offer for something at 200.00 when in fact you would have sold it to me for 100.00...you can always come down on a price..hard to go up!...just tell us what you have to have for it...

    seems like there are lots of new folks
    trying to sell things on here lately. :-\
    what cracks me up, is a person with one post
    comes on here to sell a high dollar item.
    then another person with one post, tells
    us how great the first person is. ;D ;D

  9. I really like this taxidermy site. It is not hard to see why it is a good site for everyone either.

    Isn't selling for best offer is still selling ?whats wrong with with running an auction type saleThey do it all the time at taxidermy conventions why not here.
    Many times I have seen items sell for less than I would have paid and would have liked to have had a chance to make a higher offer.

    Getting back to topic, I agree with Gary. If you want to be trusted you have to let us see who you are. I am not sending money to someone who has an hidden email and no profile information. If you are a good business person then you have nothing to hide.
