Having expendable income must be nice, or I guess I should say having that MUCH expendable income must be nice.

Wow!Biggrin

I thought that owning the hair lotion was impressive John!

I think that they have a bottle of the *original* perfume in cold storage in a museum in Grasse. I'd love to take a sniff.

I hope that the shave soap is still nicely scented.

I have a bowl of the shaving soap, and it smells great. But I didn't pay anywhere near that much for it.

Do you guys think I paid too much for it?

Just kidding...that is definitely crazy talk/pricing for some soap. I thought it was bad when I was seeing NOS GFT tallow soaps going from well over $100.

The word "expensive" hardly seems strong enough. Holy Cow is more accurate.

Personally, I would rather help send my granddaughters to college. Better use of money in the long run.

As they say, you are the highest bidder because nobody else wanted to pay that much.

Wasn't me, I'm a seller, not a buyer. I wasn't on either side of this old soap.
