  1. They were the first to post photos, but I already had this information previously from my own supplier. There are several sources that make this type of information available. Other times they don’t even list some new items, so they are not a regular and sole source that I would use exclusively.

  2. Isn’t interesting that Hobby Search is becoming a quick source of new product information? (I noticed where you got your photos.) I subscribe to their RSS feed and have Yahoo Alerts set up to tell me when new items are posted. I usually get several alerts a day, but have to reset the alert if their is a change in their URL.
