We also buy bird items and consider trades in some cases. If you have anything you think we'd like, let us know!
We know how difficult it is to buy items seen only on a flat screen, so we have taken a few views of most items so you can get a good idea of what it looks like from all angles. If you need additional photos of anything please don't hesitate to ask!
