I'll be moving in the next couple months, which means trimming down the Shave Den. All prices include shipping in the U.S. Please contact me for international shipping rates.
Starter Kit: Includes classy black stoneware shaving bowl, User grade 1940's Super Speed (perfect working condition, but with some brassing and signs of its age), Tub of The Shave Den wheat shaving cream in Crystal Blue fragrance (used once), 1oz bottle of TSD Crystal Blue aftershave milk (a few drops gone), vintage shaving brush restored with brand new 20mm Finest knot (never used), and a 5 pack of Astra blades. $100 $70
Simpson Persian Jar 2, 2-band Super: Excellent condition. Got this from another member here a couple years ago. Wonderfully soft, with excellent backbone. The only reason I'm selling is that I prefer a smaller knot. $110 SOLD

Ever-Ready Travel Brush with case - Pure Badger. Excellent condition. You can shave with it as-is, or restore it with a 16mm knot. - $20
Un-named Black wooden brush w/ silver ornament - I'm pretty sure this is horse-hair. The hair is black and coarse in the middle, with a ring of lighter, softer hairs around it. Then again, it may be a combination of badger (on the outside) and horse or boar on the inside. To be honest, I've not seen anything like it before. The bottom is marked with a large "E", and says "sterilized". It would take an 16mm knot. - $15
Shave-Ready Friedmann & Lauterjung Celebrated Straight - 7/8 wedge with barber's notch. New mahogany scales done by one of our fellow B&Bers (I'm sorry I don't remember who). Honed 2 shaves ago by the good folks at Vintage Blades. $75 SOLD
Haarweg 4/8 straight - I'd call it "shave ready", but others might not agree, so I'll keep the price low. - $20
Gillette Milord, w/case - The plating is completely gone, which makes it perfect for someone with the equipment to re-plate it. (BTW, if you do that, I want to see the pix! :biggrin1:) Mechanically sound, with both endcaps intact. - $18
Brass Gem Clog-Proof Micromatic w/case and blade bank- Case is in fair shape. Razor is in good user condition. A few scuffs across the head, but should polish up beautifully.

Adjusted the prices on some of the ones I originally posted, and now I'm adding the rest of the stuff I promised before Photobucket so unceremoniously crashed on me. :glare: As usual, all prices include shipping CONNUS, inquire for shipping elsewhere. If you would like me to take any more pictures, or answer any questions, please feel free to ask.
Gem Micromatic in Green Bakelite case - The razor itself is in excellent condition, with only a few light scratches on the head. Unfortunately, my cat knocked the case off a shelf, and now it has a small broken area on the left-hand side. :sad: Still, it looks pretty cool if you angle it the other direction. No blade banks. - $15
Gem Micromatic in Yellow Art Deco Clam-shell case - VG condition. Some light scratches on the head, and a little bit of brassing around the hinges. Teeny-tiny chip out of the case (I honestly never noticed it before doing the close inspection for this ad.) Both blade-banks included. - $35
Gem Micromatic in Green Art Deco Clam-shell case - One ugly scratch on the head keeps this from being Mint. It may, in fact, never have been used. Comes with both blade-banks, 3 sets of original blades, Original "Money Back Guarantee", and the paper insert under the head explaining how to load the blades. Very cool set- $50 SOLD
Gillette "New Improved" and Cosmo "Old" Type - "Old" has a couple of small cracks in the handle, but still works. "New Improved" has a small crack in the handle, and one missing tooth. - $6 for the pair
Fragrance Lot - Includes "Cigar", in a nice presentation tin; "Brut Attitude," in a glass bottle; "Lucky #6" in a gorgeous red bottle with a dragon etched on it; and a 1oz bottle of TSD's Lemon and Cedar aftershave balm. Each has only had a single spritz taken from it. Due to shipping regulations, this item can only be shipped CONNUS. - $25 SOLD
Mama Bear's Marauders Citrus - Part of her high-end Essential Oils line. Bay Rum and Tangerine, made with natural Essential oils only, no Fragrance oils. Sells for $11.99 plus shipping at her site. Used 2-3 times. - $10 Pending
Butterscotch Fuller Brush Company brush - Small boar bristle brush, probably intended for cleaning under the nails. Would be great for brushing out ingrown hairs/razor bumps. - $15
Vintage blades - 5 each of Fan, Tiger, and Probak blades. Fan and Tiger are NOS. - $5
3 Straight Razor boxes - Fair condition. Includes: Dixie Manufacturing Co., Union City, GA - Master Barber, "Please the Shavers"; Bullard & Gormley Co., Chicago, Ill; Geo Wostenholm & Son Sheffield, England - includes Pipe Razor insignia - $8 for all 3. SOLD
Decorative Razor (?) Case - The cloth innards have been removed, so you could really use it for whatever you may choose. It looks as if the etching was at one time gilded. This is really a unique piece that, with a little work, could become a real show-piece in your collection. - $15 SOLD
Edwin Jagger 75ml tube Sea Buckthorn Shaving Cream - Used once - $15 SOLD
75ml tube of Erasmic Shaving Cream- New formula (black cap). Used 2-3 times. - Free with any purchase over $50 First come first served. GONE

Hey Mate - no offense meant, but I believe you need to wait 14 days between B/S/T sales. Adding a brand new batch of items 4 days later circumvents that rule.
If I'm incorrect here, GLWTS.

Don't know if it makes any difference, but I made him an offer for two items from the original post and because he was waiting on getting back from work to post the rest of the items (some boxes, DEs and scents), I asked him to hold off sending the two items I purchased so I could see pics of the rest. I then made offers on those, so am getting a few items from both 'batches' so to speak. I truly think that if he'd had time, he would've posted all the items in the original post, but he told me in PM that he had a funky work schedule and was struggling getting it together.
I am a very new member here and just wanted to be open about how this transaction has gone down. It has been a benefit to me that he posted the other stuff so I didn't have to wait to find out what they looked like. I'm pretty sure he had the best intentions and didn't flout the rules on purpose. Jack-in -the-Green has been a great person to deal with and it's been a fantastic introduction to buying from someone on B&B.

Thank you BrewCommando for defending me. :001_smile
It was never my intention to flout the rules. I tried to put everything up at once, but Photobucket suddenly went down for maintenence in the middle of my original post, and I was unable to continue. I was then working a crazy schedule for the next few days, and was unable to get back to it until Sunday.
I appologise if I've upset anyone, and if a Moderator wants to take this posting down, I'd completely understand.

I received the goods safe and sound and well packaged.
Some of the items in their new home. Thanks again Jack-In-The-Green, it was a pleasure doing business with a fine gentleman.
