    I see an EBay and Amazon user selling winemaking supplies and kits and I’m wondering if this is a known retailer operating under a different name for online sales? Anyone know or have experience with this company, Quality Quick Ship?

    Can you provide a link to that vendor's Amazon and/or eBay page?

    I could be wrong, but I doubt many home-brewing stores sell drain augers or battery-operated pepper grinders.

    Maybe someone that buys up old stock or companies going out of business? I ordered a LE17 kit, I’ll let everyone know how it works out.

    Sounds like a liquidator/salvage shop - One that sells stock purchased from closed stores and damaged shipments. When you can see the goods in person you can purchase safely - off the internet/ebay... it's a risk. You can be sure if it's a liquidator/salvages shop that they probably paid at most 20 cents on the dollar - then they look the items up to see common prices and undercut that enough to be attractive OR at the same price as authentic retailers. Don't begrudge them making a profit - just not sure it's worth the risk. Check expiration/best by dates on items if appropriate. Would not buy any chemicals if they aren't commonly dated.

    I got my order today. It was packed poorly/ inappropriately and the contents of the original box were lose in the oversized box that is so common with Amazon. Everything was accounted for and not damaged so I guess all is good. I’m happy with my purchase but hesitant to order from them again. I feel like I got lucky with this one.
    I ordered the LE17 Negroamoro which is no longer available at the usual places. QQS via Amazon had a few left the last time I looked, if anyone else is interested. Good luck.

    Glad it worked for you and thanks for the warning. Sure sounds like a salvage/liquidator buying up old or damaged product from retailers/shippers.

    I don't order much of anything from Amazon any more. Too many knock-offs, used&returned and salvaged type items. You never know what you're going to get or if what you paid for is the real thing.

    I've got that one in the barrel right now. So far so good.

    Haven't had any serious problems with products ordered on Amazon but then I check out reviews of the seller as well as the product. Recently I wanted to by a handheld electric can opener - for cans like the Vintner's Harvest Wine base. BUT when I started reading reviews the entire section of can-openers was garbage - unrelated item evals under can openers, clearly bad products and it just got to the point where I couldn't shop and feel like it was worth my time. SO I get what you are saying however I have yet to have any problem with a return or shipping issue. Amazon has been pretty good.
