Totally unfriendly. – I guess this guys would be good if he gave you the time of day to work with you. I was only looking for face-value stamps, so he shut me down and told me it wasn't worth his time.
I'm an event designer and I was tracking down postage for one of many events... But he would hardly hear me out. Guess I'll find somewhere else.
Nasty, ornery, cantankerous, creep stole my money!!! – He stole over a thousand dollars in coins from me when I took some merchandize to him to have it appraised, with the possibility that I might sell it to him. He offered me a couple of hundred bucks, but there was to much there and I knew it was worth more. Before I left the store I checked the bag to make sure that everything that I brought into the store in the bag was placed back into the bag, as he inevitably took everything out of the bag to take a good look at it. Two LARGE boxes of coins were not in the bag and I had opened the bag in front of him when I asked him to take a look & to give me a price on how much the stamps & coins were worth. Those two large boxes of coins were in the damned bag and they were not when I checked! I brought it up to him obviously and we got into a shouting match. Some guy who looked like he was right out of hs was sitting behind the counter watching all of this unfold. He obviously worked there and he looked like he was in shock, especially when we started cursing at each other.
I admit that I was dumb enough to leave the store to give him time to go thru everything in the bag, but what was I suppost to do?! This guy is a fossil! He looks like he could take an hour just to go to the bathroom! When I got back I had high hopes of getting a nice estimate. Instead all I got was a broomhandle...
Stay away from this freak!!! Stay away from his store!!!!! Don't give your money to this neolithic vampire! He will disembowel you!!!
