    Default Acquisitions Mon Aug 27 - Sun Sept 2

    Pictures to follow...

    Purchased a lot of razors on eBay out of which

    1 - 1953 President (missing endcaps) otherwise perfect
    1 - 1958 Fatboy (excellent)
    1 - 1958 TV Super Speed (excellent) w/case (very good)
    2 - Red-tip 1956 Super Speeds (one missing end caps)
    1 - Brownie handled Tech
    1 - Thick handled Tech

    and purchased from GB, a bakelite travel-cased "New Gillette" the case says "Made in USA" on the velvet lined top, but the blade-guard says "Made in England". May be a miss-match but it sure looks like they were made for each other.

    Matt it is shampoo, the beads are according to the propaganda EO's I recieved this as a sample and I am very impressed with the performance so I picked a tube up. A tiny pea sized amount is all you use. My bride also likes it.

    Very nice. I passed up a chance recently to get my hands some of that soap as I picked Penhaligon's English Fern over it. Not that the Fern isn't outstanding, but now I'm wishing I'd just picked up one of each.
