A Word To The Salon/Barbershop Owner...

 Running a profitable barber shop or salon is a tough way to make a living. There is a lot of competition and you need to differentiate yourself from the competition. A great way to do this is by giving traditional straight razor shaves. Do the whole thing - hot towels, real shave soap, a nice shave brush and a few fine VINTAGE razors. There is a reason for this I will mention in a minute. The customer will leave more relaxed and you may have just become their barber for life. And with places like The Art of Shaving charging over $50 a shave, anything you charge will be a bargain.

Back to the vintage razors. Another source of income for you can be the sale of fine, professionally honed, vintage straight and double-edge razors. The Vintage Shaving Shoppe, LLC. typically sells directly to collectors, but we would be happy to work with you to make these fine razors available to your clients. And because we have no minimum number of razors you have to buy, you can start out with just a few while you begin to gain confidence in this new source of revenue. As we are one of the world's largest buyers of straight razors, so you can be assured that if you need more, we will have them in stock. Since we also provide honing services, you can collect your customer's razors and send them to use for honing - we will send them back shave-ready.

We are also steadily increasing our stock of Barberania (yes, it is a word) - vintage shaving items that like old shaving mugs, strops, brushes, vintage photos and more. You can sell these items or use them to create the atmosphere of an old-time barber shop.

Want to know more, email me at, I would be happy to discuss how to bring traditional wet-shaving to your establishment.
