New Tiki November

New Tiki November
We are so close to reopening our store with new packaging and are so excited! While soap never technically goes 'bad', it does lose its scent and can develop stearic acid precipitates over time (aka 'steric spots'), especially if the soap gets hot during transport.  To say thank you for being a loyal customer, to help clear out your shaving den, to replace a scent you d...

Mobile Barber Shop

Edging up a Cut
I recently had the privilege of meeting Mr. Frank Price, the owner of the mobile barber shop where I live in Bessemer, AL. I had seen his RV parked in an empty parking lot when I went to the post office to drop off packages of shaving soap every day, so as you can imagine, it piqued my interest.
