DECEMBER 2018 SCORES

Discussion in 'The Score' started by ronweston, Dec 1, 2018.

    Well, December is here and Winter, and the holidays, are only a few weeks away.......

    Yes we are definitely in the downside of the year, Gents, and the air is much sharper than before. So, button up your coat, put on the scarf and gloves and spend an extra hour or two on the hunt, visiting the familiar places and perhaps seeking new ones you could discover in search of that elusive find ... and, you never know, you may stumble on that special something because ...

    The Scores do await, whether in the wild and online. And when you find one, oh does it feel so good!

    And Gents, when you snag one please let us know.

    Because, we all want to see and think ... Lucky Dog! I need one of THOSE....
     
  1. Today I received the second of two orders I placed with the Holy Black on black friday. I've been wanting to try the Tell-Tale Heart AS and they offer some simply packaged bottles as their "secret stash". I was very pleased with the product and availability, but the packaging overall really left something to be desired. I received the Tangerine Creeper AS yesterday and it was in a flimsy plastic bottle with a label that was too large and bunched up around the contoured edges. It works but looks and feels cheap. I wish they at least used glass. Nevertheless, the Tell-Tale Heart splash actually leaked a bit on the package invoice. Not much, so I am not going to make a claim. Both packages also were shipped in bubble wrap envelopes instead of small boxes. Again just a poor choice. Just because the products were kept simpler and did not include all the theming, they are still quality items that still cost enough to show more care. With that aside, I can't wait to try out my new Tell-Tale Heart AS. I thought it would go good with Flowers in the Dark so I did not order the Holy Black matching soap. The Holy Black claimed the AS was the center piece of the set so this was my focus. BTW, the Tangerine Creeper soap & splash was fantastic this morning. It really worked awesome and will be a great addition to the den.

  2. I've been collecting and keeping my eye out for razors for years now and yesterday I had a once in a lifetime score (and I almost missed it too)

    I acquired a legit Gillette Safety TOGGLE in the original box with paperwork and everything. Found it at an antique store

    $38.88 later its mine
     
  3. RSCN2351.JPG B6 Declaration. Washington handle made of Blue Moon Ebonite.
     
  4. Today I picked up a small pottery bowl at the High School during my son's parent teacher conferences. I thought it looked cool, was made by the students, and the purchased helped the kids raise funds. It is a little shallow, but the surface is wide and textured enough to lather some soap for a change of pace from my daily scuttle.

  6. Today I received a package with some seasonal fun. Picked up Cane! & Kiritimati soap and AS bundles from PAA with the CK-6 formula. I am pretty psyched to try these guys, but wish they would stick with the 4oz tubs and cut the price by 20%. I'm sure the formula will be very competitive with the best that charge the same, but I do not favor being forced to buy 20% more of something that has a 33% price increase per once. Nevertheless, they should be great. I will be trying Cane! tomorrow morning and it smells nice and fresh out of the tub. I also picked up another empty tub for my shampoos. As such I will break in the High Jump 47 shampoo I bought earlier. The PAA shampoos are really fantastic.
