Bricklink Seller Review - Lost Treasures Found

It seems like many of my orders come from people I am familiar with.  First there's forum folks.  Then there's stores I've seen after countless passes through the Wanted List -> By Shop feature.  And then there's this whole other treasure trove of stores who don't show up on either list.  And with about 12,000 items in his inventory I'm surprised I've not run across this true blue space man before.

Order Details
Why this store: A Wanted Item notification came through and I followed up on it.  This store had enough extra little bits at really cheap prices to make a small but worthwhile order.  Some of the good bits were snagged from my cart before I could check out but they weren't crucial.
Packaging: Bubble mailer with two baggies.  One with a large 72 piece lot, the other with the rest of the loose bits including some trans clear pieces and printed tiles.  A little more attention to segregation for these easily scratched pieces would be desired.
Part condition: Good
Communication: Easy
Feedback left: Positive
Odd telltale signs: None
Issues: None

Recommendation
A good chunk of this store's stock is in bricks, and black, blue and light gray colors.  Many of the eye-appealing darks are filled with useless Bionicle parts.  There are a handful of minifigs and sets as well.  You may be surprised at what you find to buy here.  Given the low prices I'd say give it a look and see if you can't make a decent order.  I'm certainly going to check him out again.
