A large Moss Classic scuttle and an Ayars Waterfall lathering bowl from Sara Bonnyman are coming. I'll probably sell my smaller Classic scuttle now, since I've found that I just prefer the larger ones.

Very nice indeed. I have a small Moss Scuttle and wouldn’t be without it.

A Delta Echo Gillette New SC in black chrome & copper finish

And a couple NOS mug refills of vintage C&E Lavender shaving soap, which I suspect is tallow-based. I'll probably keep one and sell one.

After all the praise on some of the shaving forums about the Raw Shaving RS-10 razor, and then the commotion when the artisan announced that he was out of business and no longer selling, I just had to try one of them. I was able to find one, so it's on its way.

A custom UFO Kaiser Red Bronze razor handle is on the way.

And, after scraping together enough cash and having a very generous seller, a Plisson Plexi 20 HMW. My Rooneys are great, but I've missed having one of these vintage Plissons.

My skin does not tolerate cologne or eau de toilette very well, but I've had good luck using some of them recently just on pulse points after my shower, so I thought I'd try some more. I have 3 vintage Trumper eaux de toilettes coming now - Eau de Quinine (spicy, aromatic, citrus, green), West Indian Limes (citrus, conifer), and Portugal (citrus, musky, fresh).
