    From @twhite, some brushes and a couple of ferrules. Wilkinson Bonded blades got pretty cheap on the bay. And I needed a new coffee table and decided to get one with a lift top to keep some supplies in...................

    Actually these are all were things that arrived last month, but life got in the way & I didn't get them posted in time so I'm going to sneak them in here just a little bit late.

    Just got these in the mail this evening at 8 pm and that is strange for our postal service to be working late hours at -30 C delivering mail.(they must be way behind)
    Bought these around Cyber Monday sales time from Yaqi, I'm a sucker for sales I'm thinking but the price where bargains so I bought.
    The handles are 316 and a Yaqi Artic sky 24mm Silver tip badger.

    I have the same brush handle coming with a two band badger in it. Looks great.. I have some handles coming in as well. Those live sells are killing me. ;)

    I bought several synthetic brushes at $5.00 and $6.00 each.

    When my purchases start arriving I'll post some pictures. Hopefully later on this week.

    Got these a couple of days ago. The soap was suppose to be vintage but unfortunately its not. The brush is a boar beehive but i dont know if its vintage or modern or artisan. If someone can tell me, please let me know

    Jorge, not sure about the brush but I saw that listing and knew that 1 soap was vintage and 1 was not. The give away is the word "mug" not being solid blue but instead outlined. Just an FYI to help when looking in the future :happy088:

    Very cool. Those look nice! I ordered those two and a couple others as well from one of the AliExpress live sales. Pretty nice prices as long as you don't mind the shipping time, plus it's a nice surprise when they finally arrive.

    Thanks..I ordered mine at the sale price as well and I have another coming in. I'm really pleased with them and I know you will like yours when they get in. The threaded is smooth and the finish they come with is nice. I just wanted them a little shinier. They are hard to beat for the price.

    Take care.
