Today I was again reminded how lucky I am to be living about 70 miles South East of nowhere, so it's time again to share the wealth. Up for grabs is some unused vintage soap. The soap will come to you ready to use, as in gently cleaned of any surface "stuff" then given several hours in direct sunlight. (Some guys say it helps remove anything that might be "living" on the soap, I don't know. It certainly doesn't hurt.)
Here's the rules...
1. You must post your desire for the vintage soap in this thread. If you post your desire in an entertaining or creative way, it won't improve your odds, but it will be more fun to readWink
2. You must be prepared to use the soap, do not enter if you might be tempted to keep it unused (be honest). Also, it would be nice to post your thoughts on the soap's performance in the soap/cream forum.
3. If you don't like it for any reason, pass it on to someone else. It could be another member here, or someone you know in "real life".
4. You must not have any vintage soap at the time of your post of desire. Again, please be honest.
5. This is my contest, and I'll change any and all rules any time I feel like itTongue

I guess that's about it for rules. If you have won a drawing from me before on another site, I'll leave that up to you if you think you should enter again. I'll determine the winner with the use of a random number generator based on the order of posts of desire. (I don't know if that will make sense to any one but me, but I get it.) The winner will be picked on, oh let's say May 1st, at what ever time I'm able to spend a minute to get everything together.
Good luck!

Pleas count me in Smile I only have one soap, one from Ginger's Garden. It's a prototype, so it's definitely not a vintage soap Smile

I'm not qualified but what soaps are in the mix, Andy? Of course, practically any vintage soap is a great performer! Nice PIF!

As the greatest Marx (Groucho) said, I wouldn't want to be in a club that would have me as a member, but I sure would like to join the vintage soap club. Count me in!

Nice offer Andy. I don't qualify because I have a vintage puck of Williams that I use from time to time.

Well, I'm not 100% sure yet. I have several to choose from. I will say that it will be a vintage soap known as a performer, not one of the unknown or untested soaps I have.

Lots of interesting entries so far. Plenty of time to enter and win!

Andy, please do NOT count me in especially since I won a vintage soap from you on a different forum in a similar manner.

I wanted to let everyone know that if you qualify, that you should definitely enter. Andy is very generous and while I won't say which soap I won from him I will assure you that you won't be disappointed.

Cheers Andy, well done and thanks for my vintage soap!

Count me in, I haven't had the joy of pairing a vintage razor with a vintage soap as of yet.

When picking the winner, you should listen to this laughing gorilla.

I have vintage guitars, vintage whisky, and vintage guns, but have never tried a vintage soap. Would love to be included, if you would be so kind.
