So I'm always on the look out for tree's on craigslist, forums, FB, IG, and other places, problem is, a lot of sellers don't want to ship. On one of the knife forums that I belong to we started a "Heads Up Deal Spotter" thread in which members post links to hard to find knives or knives for good deals so that other members who may be looking for a particular item might be able to take advantage of these links. What do you guys think about starting a thread like that on this forum? Might help people out who are looking for a certain something in the Bonsai world.

Sounds good to me, I recently watched a huge JWP sit on craigslist for months, I think they wanted $90 for it. I wonder what ever happened to it

Could be good, but like the "can you give me directions to the places where I can dig good wild trees" threads that crop up from time to time, contributions might be not be as numerous as you might expect.

Let's be honest, this is just so you can buy more trees then say they're your "last trees of the year."

:rolleyes:

Hope you have a car and some time ;-). Looks like the owner is in Jefferson. Jefferson is in East Texas, near the Tex./La. line--two hours at least from Dallas...

I'm looking for a cheap BRT pre bonsai 30 dollar range maybe? not sure if that is a reasonable budget or not, those black pines seem like a good deal if you are in Cali. I got a buddy in Cali, hes going to be my mule lol. I'm into knives too, im working on a making a kiridashi out of tool steel for as my grafter, and a hunting blade with a antler handle, would like find a good deal on on an Emerson karambit too hah.

my club is having a bonsai auction on September 28th in ann arbor, supposedly, there is usually some good stuff to be had there.
