Clearing the den a little more. Prices are in for CONUS shipped. The lots I will only ship in the US, the Brush I can go Int'l with a little more to cover shipping.

Prefer personal paypal payments, but if not please add the 3% to cover fees.

1. Boellis Panama 1924 lot - contains ~50% of a soap bar in a relabeled GFT wooden bowl. The aftershave is 150mL and has been used exactly once. Aftershave retails for $65 and the soap $50 for a full bar. Asking $65 shipped total for the lot. NOW ASKING $55 SOLD

2. Soap/Cream/AS lot - From top left to lower right:
A) ~80-100g of a B&B forum members soap (SliceOfLife) in a metal container. The soap lathers great, but has a spicy bay rum scent to it that I don't care for.

B) NOS Old Spice soap in mug. Never used.
C) ~40-50% Salter's Indian Sandalwood cream.
D) >90% Vulfix Rose Cream
E) Vintage Wembol Lavender Shave Soap - I've never used it, but it looks like it might be at 80+% remaining. Probably is tallow and needs rehydrating.
F) I'm pretty sure this was Wrisley. I tried to grate this is a food processor, but it literally shredded into fine particles. I then put it back in the bowl and was trying to rehydrate it, hence the coloring and appearance. It was a new puck when I started and I only tried one lather. I think it still needs rehydrated.
G) Taylor of Old Bold Street Sandalwood Aftershave - about 50%. The scent just doesn't agree with me.

Asking $65 shipped for the lot. NOW ASKING $55

3. SOLD Hoffritz 102 Best Badger Butterscotch Brush - This is a vintage brush that I would say is a strong possibility to have been made by Simpson's. You can make out a Made in England under the Hoffritz logo and it is stamped best badger on the base.

The size is almost identical to a Chubby 2 (Pictured next to my Chubby 2 for size comparison (NOT FOR SALE)).

While the hair is vintage and slightly colored, it works perfectly well and does not need a renot. I find the tips very soft and backbone decent. Density wise it is plenty dense. I've just found that I like a brush with a little more backbone and some scritch to the tips.

Asking $65 shipped CONUS, a little more Int'l. SOLD

Price reduction on the lots. Don't think I can go much lower given the retail cost of the Boellis.

If you would care to split the soap lot I would be interested in the Old Spice cup and soap.

BUT....

Only if I have 2 buyers lined up for everything.

I'm not sure that old soaps need to be rehydrated. I've heard that term in discussions of old shaving creams, and have done it by adding a teaspoon of water to the dried up cream and letting it sit for a couple of days. Old soaps just need to be used normally. The only deterioration to soaps seems to be a tendency to lose their fragrance over a long period of time, but they're basically stable no matter how old they get.
