There is a thread on here for shaving supplies available in Indian markets. It made me wonder about other ethnic markets. So what shaving items has the group found at other ethnic markets, such as Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Middle Eastern etc.

Nothing for me so far, but I don't do the shopping that often. I have a few Indian, southeast asian and Halal markets in my area, I should take some time one weekend and just go investigating.

In the city of Lancaster their are tons of shops, but it's mainly food products. I was hoping the Italian markets would have some Proraso, but there was nothing. I don't think the market is large enough to have them stock the shaving products that we look for.

Australia is rather multicultural, but there aren't any really great "ethnic" shopping precincts. There are various culture specific shops scattered around the metropolitan area, but they all focus predominately on food products.

I haven't been able to find much in Nashville. I know of 2 large Indian markets in Atlanta that carry Godrej, Dettol, & Mysore stuff.

Out of curiosity if you go into an Asian or Middle Eastern market are there particular things you should look for?

For ME markets, Arko products come to mind. Horsehair brushes, possibly. Alum blocks, maybe.
