Hi everyone, hope you are all well.

We still offer a 10% discount on all orders using code SMF10.

As we also offer free UK delivery on any value of order I'm afraid we also now ask that you spend at least £25.00 before using the code. We just couldn't offer free shipping on orders below £22.50 - sorry...

Best, Robert

Anyone know of what happened to this once great shop?

On a lark I came across a link to it and it now seems to be located in Vietnam as an ebay only shop? The barbershop seems to have been sold and under new ownership while the online business has been sold off separately to a Vietnamese outfit.

Anyone hear from Robert Johnston as to what exactly has happened?

I have made many a purchase from this venerable shop in the past (my first Trumper's products so many years ago when I was first married - so many wonderful memories, including having my first BK brush delivered especially on a Sunday - how'd they pull that off, I'll never know) but will no longer do so now that they've seemingly sold out.

I know I've been scarce the last year because I've changed careers which has taken all my time but, Dear Heavens, I just couldn't imagine this happening. What has become of Robert and Charlotte Johnston?

Anyone have any information on this transformation?

I don't know, but it's very sad if they didn't make it. Good people.

The link posted above takes one to Robert's' Ebay store, which is currently active. It appears they may be liquidating the remaining stock due to the fact that very few articles are listed in his Ebay store.

I think I'm right in remembering that they had a dodgy partner in the Coates venture and he may have cost them their business.

Ugh! God Bless them! I hate to see the sundering of something so wonderful.
