I'd like to put some items up for sale/trade, but before I do, I'm bracing for an assault.
First, before anybody picks a fight over my post count only being in the fifties, please go actually read my posts. Some are brief, but they're overall solid posts.
Second, I've been a member of this forum for over two years. Mostly as a reader. I was a wet shaver before I ever came here. Go read my very first post here to verify it for yourself.
I am a member of two other shaving forums as well, and I have been most active in another one (TSD), but I am getting back into shaving from a yearlong hiatus, and I'm now coming over to spend some time on B&B.
All in All, I'm not trying to make a living off of the B/S/T forum. I'm going to ask reasonable prices, based on what I see other items selling for on this site.
Also, everything in this batch of items has been in my possession since 2008. I bought some for myself and some as gifts that were never given. I bought some in this very website's trade channel. I bought others at antique shops in Nashville, because they were reasonably priced, and I hope they'll be useful to someone who appreciates them through this forum. I bought them in cruddy condition and put in effort to clean them up, and I'm selling them for what I consider to be reasonable prices. If I'm causing a problem, have a mod contact me, and I will gladly list my stuff on eBay instead.
All that being said, I hope that nobody feels the need to cause a stink, because I think this community is a great place for much more than selling items. It is a great place, because it is exactly what I called it - a community.
So, with that out of the way, on to the items...

And the Brushes:
Crabtree & Evelyn Best Badger Brush + Stand: Used once or twice. Has a nice smell and a great feel. Shouldn't really need much of an intro - it's a C&E BBB LOL. I'm pricing it based on what I paid, which was $35 for the brush, and $6 for the matching stand. The brush now retails for $65, but you can get it for less than what I paid for it. I still have the box for the brush and the bag that it all came in! Good deal. $38 Shipped SOLD
Men-U Premier Synthetic Brush: Again, this brush is a known quantity. Lathers exceptionally in a bowl, but not a great face latherer. Very solid as far as synthetics go. I tried it, and while it's very nice for what it is, I just prefer natural bristles. $30 Shipped SOLD
I'm also open to trades. Hard to quantify on an item-by-item basis, but here's a list of things I'd consider for trades:
Taylor Eton College Cream
Taylor St. James Cream, Aftershave
Taylor Mr. Taylor Cream
Taylor Rose Cream
T&H 1805 Cream
T&H Trafalgar Cream, Aftershave
T&H Grafton Cream, Aftershave
T&H West Indian Limes
A chubby little British brush with a short loft, in best badger. Simpson makes some sweet ones.
Taylor Big Baby Guitar! LOL
All prices include First Class shipping to the Continental United States. I will ship international, but you would need to pay the actual shipping costs.
If you want multiple items, I'll deduct $2.00 from the cost of each item past the first, cuz that's what I'm roughly anticipating in shipping costs on everything but the C&E brush - the size may make it a little more money.
