My stepson is away at Camp, Ashley is at work, and Dave has a day off. I'm going to hit some antique shops in Clinton and Sevierville (2 cities closeby). Is there anything that anyone would like for me to be on the lookout for? Normally Clinton and Sevierville have quite a few shops with razors and brushes, etc. I'm on the hunt for a Barbasol Jar and some vintage blades, but will keep my eye out for razors as well. Theres a shop in Sevierville and Clinton that both have a great amount of straight razors. Just post in the thread if you're looking for anything and a price range and I'll pick em up if I see em

You better keep your eye out for some Williams Menthol!

Let me know if you find a Gem Jewel or Ever Ready Streamline for $20 or so. Winky

I've heard the shops around Sevierville are pricey so I hope you make some good finds at great prices.

If you see any injectors... Can you believe that in 4 years of hunting I've found only 1 injector and it had a broken spring. I have no idea where all the ones on ebay come from. Pennsylvania seems to be an anti-injector state.

The Jewel is the Gem version of the Ever Ready Streamline. Some say it doesn't exist, but I thought I remembered seeing a thread once where one was pictured.

I don't hunt animals. I hunt razors, brushes, and sewing machines (for my wife). The sewing machines are larger and therefore much easier to catch.

I did stop at Kroger to pick up some groceries and got some new Aftershaves. I got the new Nivea Spash (which smells great) and Kroger's alternative to Ice Blue Aqua Velva.

My wife and I were in Sevierville this exact same time in June back in '09,rode my motorcycle down there and met up with some friends,some fine riding roads all around especially the one's not so well known except to the locals.Ha! This thread's making me thirsty for an ice cold mason jar of sweet tea.

Sorry to hear you didn't bag any razors Dave.Besides some incredible scenery,I remember seeing Dolly Parton's place,the home of Bush Baked Beans and Smokey Mountain Knife Works.

You're blessed to live around such a beautiful area.

Being from the Deep South hunting was something I grew up with and it's very popular here in Kentucky. I, however, have never enjoyed it. It's hard for me to kill mice much less something like deer. I just don't have the make up for it. I don't condemn others who do it though. I'm a firm believer in YMMV. Biggrin

When I rode motorcycles I loved riding through the mountains. If I had an ice cold mason jar, it wouldn't be full of sweet tea. The next time you head down, hit me up, I'll buy ya a beer or soda pop

Sounds good Dave,thanks...these days a soda pop's perfect.

About those Mason Jars....

I forgot to mention we had a connection down there for some of the local's finest "Artisan Beverages" Cool

When we pulled in off the road for the night....Apple Pie,Grape & Banana shine chilled till those ice crystals are just starting to form.

The Krogers (3 of them) do not have much in the way of anything shave related.
