    Default Best place to buy supplies

    Where is the best place to buy shaving accessories? Here is why im asking.
    I am looking to buy several things at a one-stop-shop. Here is what I am looking for:
    1. Brush (23mm best or pure badger)
    2. Holder for brush
    3. Soap (really want some Permafrost, but looking for others also)
    4. Dish/mug for said soap
    5. Syptic pencil or power.

    I have been unable to find ONE store that does it all. Any help will be appreciated.

    Soap- Shaving, Bath and Body, Skincare, Home Fragrance, Brushes, Creams, Soaps Colleen does highly acclaimed soaps. Username churley- has a thread on this site. Lovely lady and is bound to be alot of help to you. She also does bowls, brushes and brush holders.

    Styptic- most large supermarkets and chemists will sell them, though the person working there might not know what it is. ^^

    Good luck

    Thanks Sidney. I have looked at Colleens site before. Im sure I will be buying some of her soap before long.

    Has anyone ever purchased from razorandbrush.com before? They have a great selection, and looks like I can get everything I want there, but they do not take paypal that is attached to a credit card. This makes me a bit nervous as to why. With a CC purchase you have some protections that you dont have with your bank account.

    Any buy from them before?

    not me man. I've bought from Colleen, classic shaving and executive shaving before. No problems with them. Why dont you do a forum search for the site you found and see if anything comes up....

    You have to upgrade your paypal account to accept credit cards. You have to pay fees. It would not surprise me if I traded with an individual that wouldn't accept CC, but if someone has a business and does any volume at all, it would seem prudent to accept CC. It doesn't mean they're dishonest, but from a business it raises my eyebrow.

    Thats exactly my thoughts. I dont think they are up to something, but a business of this (perceved) size should be able to handle CC transactions.

    Hey, life is a risk in general.

    Even though there are many vendors that offer great products with a great selection and excellent customer service looks like razorandbrush.com is the store that has all of the items you have listed above.
    I have ordered many many times never having any trouble from razor and brush, i really recomend their services, i always used a money order and always got my stuff within a week.
    Call Gio , he will take care of you.
    razorandbrush.com
    You can also really trust jim at vintagebladesllc.com he is a great guy as well, he doesnt carry permafrost thouogh... be well.

    I've purchased all these items from classicshaving.com. Never had a problem with them.
