    Declining sales at the, "Three T's?"

    I refer to Trumper, Trufitt & Hill, and TOBS of course. A year ago I was in conversation with the owner of a large online men's shaving site. It is well known here on the forum. He noted that when he evaluated sales trends over the prior five years that there was a marked decline in him...

    Janus Razor Shaves

    I did some digging to make sure I had it right. I bought a Toggle here on BST that was gunked up - the adjustment collar was real stiff. It cost $150.00 was sold as is and was a calculated risk. After some consulting with Chris who restores and replates (what is the name of his site?) I got...

    Forget Mrs. Hubbard...

    Thanks guys, here is some interesting feedback on these copper bowls. It is common that when a customer receives his copper bowl that when we hear back from him it is some version of this: "Got the bowl, it is better looking in person than the pictures. Here is what happened. It is the one...

    No fairy tale at Captain's Choice, they are all gone. Once again we are out of our hand made copper lather bowls. We hope to be restocked in a week.

    Do You Fly the Flag?

    Our flag has been flying 24/7 for years and is lit at night. We do take it for granted here in the US as @EclipseRedRing alluded to, this flying of the flag. For instance, in Germany I understand it is seldom seen and this is true in many other countries - just not done. I have neighbors who...

    What do you drive?

    Well the Suburban got to 230,000 miles on the original transmission. It had begun to slip when put into reverse, had begun leaking oil, the whole grill was loose across the front. So I put it out to pasture. (Sounds like a country western song.)
