    I'm a nut for brushes, razors, but especially that Barbicide jar! :love055:

    OK, here's the trick. Check the participants before you. You've already let em know you'd like to get it. Someone else may have similar items that'll get packed. Watch the guys after you and be aware of what they seek. I like the randomness, but this can be targeted, too.

    John Beeman Little chicken in hot water

    I had a little time after work today so I started packing up the box.
    I know I'm supposed to take more than I put in and I think I did; so far.

    Maybe I'm packing it tighter than I received it but there's space in the box and I don't know what to do about it.

    I'm having sort of a crisis thinking I might put packing material in the box instead of shave gear.

    I went into my shave den and sniffed a few soaps hoping to snap out of it.

    If I don't post again within 12 hours...

    Umm, add more gear? Brushes are always nice if you have any that aren't loved. How's about a local non-shave related product? Anything they make there that others might not have seen?

    I got a lot of stuff, all of which is decent and usable to good, imo, that can go in. John, if there's any way to empty out what everyone agrees no one wants and fill the space with paper towel, bubble wrap, etc, that gives me more room to pass on stuff someone can use.

    Do you prefer whole bean or ground?
     
  14. gorgo2

    I can do either, no real preference.

    Whole bean is what I've been on recently.
    Started out with Starbucks breakfast blend, then went to a HEB house brand.

    Okay, there you have it. I didn't take photos because by the time I remembered the box was half packed.

    Yes, I did put in another Old Spice mug and puck of vintage Williams. I did the same thing the last time I had the box but they're popular, they're not made any more, and I happened to find both cheap a couple of weeks ago. It's a different style mug and a different year Williams so it's technically not the same as the last time.

    The C&E soap is a great lime and it's discontinued.

    I don't know what came over me but I went into the inner sanctum of my den and actually gave up a NOS tube of Coates Tea Tree. I also sacrificed a full puck of Golddachs Classic.

    A Pinaud Musk A/S sample since @RyX mentioned it recently and some coffee for @gorgo2

    I had @Enrico in mind with three vintage brush handles if he's interested.

    I'll go to the post office after lunch and PM the tracking info.

    Somewhere out there on the Interwebs was a guy who purchased a huge quantity of Coates creams. Although that may have begun to dry and concentrate in the tubes he was still selling them.

    I've got a little bottle of tea tree essential oil. Works well for toe nail fungus! Very medicinal smell. The Aussies included the oil in their WWII first aid kits for it's antibacterial properties.
