Pete, I think maybe you did just have bad luck with Freshops. I have to put in
a good word for them here. I have placed several orders with them, the most
recent being for Rhizomes which I received in excellent shape 4 days after I
placed the order. I have also been very happy with the leaf hops that I have
bought from them. Their products are extremely fresh, arrive quickly, and are
the least expensive I have found, and they don't even charge shipping!

Recently, they have gone to an answering machine for accepting orders. While I
hate those machines, Freshops has repeatedly filled the order correctly and
promptly. So Pete, sorry for your bad experience, but I'm not sure it's
indicative of Freshops overall.
