... for a bottle of AS when you could have bought it for less?
Here's what I mean, I love the old time stuff like Old Spice, Aqua Velva, Skin Bracer and the basic Clubman/Pinuad products but I'm a bigtime fan of glass bottles. I know that vintage bottles of this stuff can "spoil" if not stored under the right conditions. Sometime Old Spice will turn a very yellow-brown color and not smell the same. We will leave whether or not the current production of any of these smells the same as the old stuff out of conversation for this post.
Anyway back to the point, Old Spice glass bottles are abundant but not so for AV and SB (at least not where I live), so after I snatched the last glass bottle of AV off the shelf of my local supermarket several months ago my quest for a dimpled Skin Bracer bottle begain. So as I often do I combed ebay for a bottle. I found one but thought the $8.00 BIN plus $7.50 S/H was too much so I passed and although no one bought it the seller has not re-listed it or responded to my e-mails. I don't know why I thought it was too much because I've paid more for Old Spice many times. So my search continued until last week when a seller that I have purchased several bottles of Old Spice from listed a dimpled glass bottle of Skin Bracer, with its box. So I entered my max bid and went on my way. On Saturday I received notice that I won. I was excited and still am except that I paid $25.50 for the SB and $6.00 shipping.
Go figure, sometimes when it comes to the simple stuff we make the most incredible decisions.
